Leiden University wins Benelux Algorithm Programming Contest 2013
The Leiden team "Geen Syntax" (no syntax), consisting of Bas Nieuwenhuizen, Mathijs van Nes and Raymond van Bommel, has won the Benelux Algorithm Programming Contest 2013 in Utrecht. With almost an hour until the end of the game the Leiden students of mathematics and computing solved the 10 tasks faster than the other teams.
In total there were 34 student teams participating the contest from 10 different universities from the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg, including 4 of Leiden University. It is not the first time that this programming competition for student teams has won by a team from Leiden University. This happened recently in 2007, 2008 and 2011. Congratulations on this achievement!
