Three-person teams compete to solve algorithmic tasks based on real-world problems, practicing cooperation, creativity and ability to work under time pressure.
Other places on the podium were taken by two teams from the Jagiellonian University, but in the top ten of the final list there were also two teams from Wroclaw:
UWr 2: Krzysztof Boryczka, Marcin Knapik, Adam Zyzik - this team will represent the university in the ICPC finals in November 2022
