The Central Division contest held on August 22 provided students at universities in Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales and Queensland an opportunity to qualify for the Regional Final to be held in Auckland in late September. A total of 26 teams from 8 universities at three sites (Brisbane hosted by QUT, Canberra hosted by ANU and Sydney hosted by University of Sydney) worked on the 11 problems prepared by a host of volunteers from across the South Pacific Region.
The contest was won by TheNorthernLine from The University of New South Wales with 8 problems solved. They were followed by UNSWsmartypants in second place and Probably Approximately Correct in third place, each with 7 problems solved. The teams qualifying for the Regional Final are TheNorthernLine, Probably Approximately Correct, Sublime 3 from University of Sydney (6 problems solved) and Avada Kejava from Queensland University of Technology (5 problems solved). Best wishes to these teams for the Regional Final contest.
The contest, which ran concurrently with the Eastern Division and Western Division contests, ran smoothly on the Domjudge environment prepared by Richard Lobb (Canterbury, New Zealand). Clarification requests kept the contest jury busy for the duration of the contests. Thanks must be made to Darcy Best and Richard Lobb for their help in preparing and proof reading the problem set and to Phil Robbins for his work on contest administration and web presence.
A big thank you must also be extended to all volunteers at all sites who helped with preparation of the contest, catering and organising things on the day. And finally, thanks to ACM and IBM for their continued support of the ICPC.
