ACM-ICPC World Finals

ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (abbreviated as ACM-ICPC or just ICPC) is an annual multi-tiered computer programming competition among the universities of the world. This championship is organized into multiple levels and World Final is its top and most prestigious level.

World finalists

ACM ICPC is divided into three different phases - "Regional Preliminary", "Regional Final" and "World Final". Each year during the winter initial level of this competition starts in six different continents of the world - Asia, Africa and the Middle East, Europe & Russian Republic, South Pacific, North America and Latin America. Each continent is called a "Region" and consist of one or more sites. Each site hosts an individual Regional Final. Sites with many teams usually organize Regional Preliminary over online to select a specific number of teams for the Regional Final. Winning team from all the regionals from all over the world directly move to the World Final. In addition, few teams that fulfill a set criteria in ACM-ICPC bylaws receive "Wild Card Entry" and also move to the World Final.
