The notes below are from David Fotland. They are not entirely consistent with the information above, even allowing for the problems of transliterating Chinese names to English.

The winner was Du, Kwei-Chung's program.
Second was Liu, Dong-Tue's Dragon.
Third was a program by Tsao Kwo-Ming from Taiwan.
