Congratulations to PhD student Darcy Best who, along with Aamir Cheema of FIT, has organised and trained student teams for this year’s ACM Inter-Collegiate Programming Competition, resulting in one Monash team winning second place (and best from Victoria), out of 30 from Vic, SA, WA & Tas, in the first round, meaning that they go on to a South Pacific regional competition in Sydney later this month.

Many group members recently visited South Korea as part of the 2014 International Congress of Mathematicians, including Graham Farr who took part in a Baduk (Go) event comprising a number of simultaneous games, in which five Baduk professionals each played 5-6 other players. Four of the professionals were top level (9 dan) and some have been regarded as the top players in the world.
