The 2017 ACM East Central North American (ECNA) regional programming contest was held over the weekend of October 27 & 28. This is a distributed computer programming contest happening simultaneously across 4 institutes, 134 teams competed in total attempting to solve 10 problems in 5 hours in any programming language from Java, C, C++ or Python, bringing together the elite from across universities and colleges throughout the region.  Windsor was the only host in Ontario welcoming 24 teams from 10 different universities: Waterloo, Toronto, Toronto at Scarborough, McMaster, York, Ryerson, Brock, Carleton, Western and Windsor.
Top three overall winners were from the University of Waterloo solving 9/10 problems, defeating University of Michigan, Carnegie Mellon, and the University of Toronto teams. Windsor had three teams of mostly newcomers attempting the competition for the first time achieving a modest finish, two of the teams solving 3 problems and one solving 2 problems. 
The School of Computer Science at the University of Windsor has been hosting this annual competition since 2010 under the leadership of Dr. Ziad Kobti as Site Director, and the tremendous efforts of our expert technical and admin support staff, as well as the enthusiastic student volunteers.  Also special thanks to our new faculty members Drs. Saeed Samet, Pooya Mouradian-Zadeh, and Sherif Saad who came out to learn about the competition and take on future roles in coaching and training our Windsor teams. 
Congratulations to our Windsor teams for coming out and participating:
Windsor Gold: Ryan Bluteau, Sandra Papo, Juraj Guba
Windsor Black: David Worley, Patrick Devaney, Adam Vandolder
Windsor Blue: Austin Docherty
We look forward to seeing them participate next year and rise in the ranking.
