HOMEConducted in association with computing giant IBM IIT Kharagpur plays host to this year's ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest(ICPC), which gives coding enthusiasts from across the nation an opportunity to cross swords at a grand level. The magnitude of this mega event can be gauged from the fact that the finest students of the computing disciplines at over 2000 universities located in 80 countries across 6 continents participate in this event. The aim of the contest is to provide the participants a chance to hone their advanced and intricate technical skills and also provides an impetus to their creativity and teamwork. All this has to be achieved by the coders in a time crunch, testing their ability to perform under pressure. It is certainly the oldest and by far the most illustrious coding contest.
