The NYU Purple team of Bowen Yu, Fabian Gundlach, and Danilo Neves Ribeiro won the 2013 Greater New York ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest, held October 27 at Yale University. The team answered all nine problems with no mistakes, and came in 1st of 50 teams, including teams from Columbia, Cornell, Princeton, SUNY Stony Brook, and Yale. They are invited to compete in the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest in Yekaterinburg, Russia next June.

NYU Bobcat (Yury Skobov, David Ackerman, and Aviv Goldgeier) placed 14th. NYU Torch (Stephen Hu, Weilun Du, and Dun Wang) placed 17th. NYU Gold (Y.D.
