The Contest is composed of two main stages: the Regional Contests held in various continents, and the World Finals. It lasts for about 9 months each season and attracts nearly 50,000 university students from over 100 countries and regions around the world. After more than 50 years of development, ICPC has become the most influential computer contest for university students globally and is regarded as the “Olympics” in the field of computer software. ICPC advocates innovation and teamwork, encourages students to unleash their creativity in building new software programs, and helps them test their work capabilities under high pressure. It is a stage for computer programmers from all over the world to showcase their skills, and is also the best window for top universities worldwide to showcase their educational achievements. ICPC has been highly valued by renowned universities worldwide, both in the Regional Contests and the World Finals. In recent years, ICPC has thrived in mainland China, with six to seven ICPC Asia Regional Contests and one Asia Regional Final held each year in various parts of the country, selecting teams to participate in the ICPC World Finals. Since 2020, each ICPC Asia Regional Contest has attracted over 2,000 students from nearly 300 universities in China, and the Asia Regional Final Contest has become a stage for top universities in China, including Tsinghua University, Peking University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and Fudan University, to compete against each other.
