The ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) provides
college students with opportunities to interact with students from
other universities and to sharpen and demonstrate their
problem-solving, programming, and teamwork skills. The contest
provides a platform for ACM, industry, and academia to encourage and
focus public attention on the next generation of computing
professionals as they pursue excellence.
The contest is a two-tiered competition among teams of students
representing institutions of higher education. Teams first compete in
regional contests held around the world from September to November
each year. The winning team from each regional contest qualifies to
advance to the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest World
Finals, typically held the following March to mid-April. Additional
high-ranking teams may be invited to the World Finals as wild card
