ACM Programming Competition


2016 Regional Champion Team and Coaches at World Finals

 Do you love algorithms? Want to improve on coding interviews? Like writing code? If you answer YES to any of them, the ACM Competition is for you!

 The ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) is a two-tiered competition among teams of three students representing institutions of higher education.

 The teams are given several problems to solve in five hours by writing computer programs. Teams first compete in regional contests held around the world from September to November each year. Top teams from each regional contest qualify for advancement to the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest World Finals, typically held sometime in the following May.

 UBC has qualified for the World Finals for 12 out of the past 16 years and has won the Pacific Northwest Regional Contest many times, beating the likes of Stanford, Berkeley, SFU, and Washington.

We need you

 In order to keep this tradition alive, we need UBC students (both undergraduate and graduate) to get involved. We typically hold practices once or twice a week in ICICS 005 year-round. There is almost always a practice 11am-5pm every Saturday and anyone with basic programming ability is welcome to join. Tryouts for the team typically occur around the end of September.
