The International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) is recognized as the world’s largest and highest-level international collegiate programming contest with the largest number of participants, and its purpose is to enable college students to fully demonstrate their ability to analyze and solve problems through computers. It is known as the “Olympic” competition in the IT industry. The competition is held annually, and this year is the 47th. Seven regional competitions will be held in Shenyang, Xi’an, Hefei, Jinan, Hangzhou, Nanjing, and Hong Kong in the 2022-2023 season, and the East Continent League Final will be held in Shanghai after the regional competitions.
The China Collegiate Programming Contest (CCPC), an international annual event organized by the China Collegiate Programming Contest Association for the world’s college students, aims to stimulate students’ interest in learning algorithms and programming, improve algorithm design, logical reasoning, mathematical modeling, programming implementation, and English reading skills, and motivate students to use computer programming techniques and skills to solve practical problems and cultivate teamwork spirit. The competition has been held annually since 2015, and this year is the 8th. In 2022, CCPC held four sub-contests in Guilin, Weihai, Guangzhou, and Mianyang respectively and also one final contest.
The Beihang ACM-ICPC Programming Competition is led by the Office of Academic Affairs and organized by the School of Software. The participating students are undergraduate and graduate students from all schools and colleges of the university. The Beihang ACM Training Base was established in 2005, and it organizes the Beihang ACM-ICPC School Competition and Selection Tournament from November to December every year to promote the competition within the university and to select the ACM-ICPC team members. At the end of the competition, about 40 students will be selected from all over the university to form a number of three-person teams, which will be trained intensively in spring and summer. After that, they will start to participate in the online and on-site competitions of the ICPC East Continent League and of the CCPC from September.
