NYU team at ICPC North America Championship, 2020


International Colligiate Programming Contest is held every year. We usually have a few teams going to the Greater New York Region contests. The top teams from the region advance to the North America Championship and then to the World Finals.

Keep an eye out for announcements about the regional contests if you are interested in becoming part of the next NYU championship team!


The North America Qualifier is an online contests leading to the ICPC regional contests (see above for more details about ICPC). The teams can test out their skills or individuals can participate on their own. The level of problem-difficulty at this contest is usually comparable or even more challenging than the level of problems at the regional contests.


Codeforces is a site with many contests and practices. The upcoming events should be shown at the calendar below.
