The 2023 International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) China Invitational Competition ended in Xi'an, Northwest China's Shaanxi province, on May 14. Two of the three teams under the guidance of Associate Professor Liu Jinzhuo from the School of Software of Yunnan University in Kunming won silver medals, the best performance in this kind of high-level competition among universities in Southwest China's Yunnan province.
