The ICPC, the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest, is an extra-curricular, competitive programming sport for students at universities around the world. ICPC competitions provide gifted students opportunities to interact, demonstrate, and improve their teamwork, programming, and problem-solving prowess. The ICPC is a global platform for academia, industry, and community to shine the spotlight on and raise the aspirations of the next generation of computing professionals as they pursue excellence.[5]

In 2018 World Final, problems Conquer the World and Uncrossed Knights Tour were not solved.

The ICPC traces its roots to a competition held atTexas A&M Universityin 1970 hosted by the Alpha Chapter of theUpsilon Pi EpsilonComputer Science Honor Society (UPE). This initial programming competition was titled First Annual Texas Collegiate Programming Championship and each University was represented by a team of up to five members. The computer used was a360 model 65which was one of the first machines with a DAT (Dynamic Address Translator aka paging) system for accessing memory. The start of the competition was delayed for about 90 minutes because two of the four memory bank amplifiers were down. Teams that participated included, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, University of Houston, and five or six other Texas University / Colleges. There were three problems that had to be completed and the cumulative time from start to successful completion determined first-, second-, and third-place winners. The programming language used wasFortran. The programs were written on coding sheets, keypunched onHollerith cards, and submitted for execution. TheUniversity of Houstonteam won the competition completing all three problems successfully with time. The second- and third-place teams did not successfully complete all three three problems. The contest evolved into its present form as a multi-tier competition in 1977, with the first finals held in conjunction with the ACM Computer Science Conference.

Tracing its roots to 1970, over 320,000 ICPC alumni populate the professional ranks of high-tech companies, consulting firms, financial institutions, investment firms, high-tech startups, venture-capital firms, academia, and public service.[6]ICPC Alumni are developers, software engineers, senior software engineers, leads, chiefs, CTOs, CEOs, founders, and co-founders. They are also professors, researchers, and in public service. A good number are in venture capital, helping others start companies. One is a comedian.[7]

From 1977 to 1989, the contest included mainly teams of four from universities throughout the United States and Canada. Headquartered atBaylor Universitysince 1989, with regional contests established within the worlds university community, operating under the auspices of ACM, and with substantial industry support, the ICPC has grown into a worldwide competition. To increase access to the World Finals, teams were reduced to three students within their first five academic years.

The winner is the team which correctly solves most problems. If necessary to rank teams for medals or prizes among tying teams, the placement of teams is determined by the sum of the elapsed times at each point that they submitted correct solutions plus 20 minutes for each rejected submission of a problem ultimately solved.

Compared to other programming contests (for example,International Olympiad in Informatics), the ICPC is characterized by a large number of problems (eight or more problems in just 5 hours). Another feature is that each team can use only one computer, although teams have three students. This makes the time pressure even greater. Good teamwork and ability to withstand pressure is needed to win.

During each contest, the teams of three are given 5 hours to solve between eight and fifteen programming problems (with eight typical for regionals and twelve for finals). They must submit solutions as programs inCC++JavaPython[10][11]orKotlin[12](although it is not guaranteed every problem is solvable in any certain language). Programs are then run on test data. If a program fails to give a correct answer, the team is notified and can submit another program.

ICPC contests are team competitions. Current rules stipulate that each team consist of three students. Participants must be university students, who have had less than five years of university education before the contest. Students who have previously competed in two World Finals or five regional competitions are ineligible to compete again.[8][9]

UPE has provided continuous support since 1970 and honored World Finalists since the first Finals in 1976. ACM-branding honors ACM member contributions and past ACM commitments and assistance since 1976. Baylor University has served since 1985, hosting ICPC Headquarters since 1989. The ICPC operates as a globally-coordinated unincorporated association operating under agreements with host universities and non-profits to insure that participation in ICPC is open to qualified teams from every university in the world. See ICPC Policies and Procedures.[5]

For example, consider a situation when two teams, Red and Blue, tie by solving two problems each. The team Red submitted their solutions to A and B at 1:00 and 2:45 after the beginning of the contest. They had a rejected run on C, but it was ignored since they didnt solve C. The team Blue submitted solutions to problems A and C at 1:20 and 2:00 after the beginning. They had one rejected run on C. Then, the total time is 1:00+2:45=3:45 for team Red and 1:20+2:00+0:20=3:40 for team Blue. The tie is broken in favor of Team Blue.

The winner was Saint Petersburg ITMO. Following teams were awarded medals in ICPC 2017: Russia(2G,1S,1B) Poland (1G) South Korea(1G, 1B) China(3S) Sweden(1B) Japan(1B)
