ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ACM-ICPC) is the world’s largest and highest-attended top-level programming competition for college students. Known as the “Olympic Games” in the IT industry, the contest aims to enable students to fully demonstrate their ability to analyze and solve problems with computers. The contest is held once a year and this year witnesses the 46th contest. In the season of 2021-2022, ACM-ICPC has six regionals in east Asia, which are held in Jinan, Shenyang, Shanghai, Nanjing, Macau, and Kunming, respectively. The Asia-East Continent Final will be held in Xi’an after the regionals.
At Beihang University, the ACM-ICPC competition is guided by the Department of Academic Affairs and organized by the School of Software, attracting undergraduate and graduate students from all schools. Founded in 2005, the ACM Training Team of Beihang University organizes a university-level competition on program design each year to select ACM contestants while improving students’ programming skills.
ICPC regional contests are held roughly once a week and usually last for half a year. Universities that are promoted in regional contests and Asia-East Continent Final will be qualified to compete in the World Final of ICPC next year.
