The ICPC-Cyprus Programming Competition adopts the mission of the ACM ICPC, i.e. the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest, to provide 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 winning team will participate in the ICPC Regional Competition, which leads to the ACM ICPC International Competition. Cyprus falls under the South Eastern Europe Regional Competition (SEERC), and the organizing committee of the ICPC-Cyprus is collaborating with SEERC Organizers to ensure an exciting event for all participants. In addition to the Regional Qualification, winning teams will also become the recipients of several prizes.
The language of the Contest is English. All written contest materials will be in English.
During the Online Registration, each team’s coach must select one programming language for the team out of the list of languages allowed each year. In the 2017 competition (13th May 2017, UCLan Cyprus), the programming languages of the ICPC-Cyprus are: Java, Python and C++. Once registered each team will receive a more detailed description of the programming environment they will be using, based on their programming language selection. Furthermore, given their selected programming language, each team will be placed in a lab where the appropriate setup is available and judges from across Cyprus will be observing their attempts to complete their programming solutions. The list of judges will be publicized on this website after the competition.
