The ICPC traces its roots to a competition held at Texas A&M in 1970 hosted by the Alpha Chapter of the UPE Computer Science Honor Society. The idea quickly gained popularity within the United States and Canada as an innovative initiative to raise the aspirations, performance, and opportunity of the top students in the emerging field of computer science.

ACM-ICPC is the world’s first, largest and most prestigious international competition for Computer Science students. It is a team-based, programming competition that fosters problem-solving, programming and teamwork skills amongst university students around the globe. The contest involves a network of universities hosting Regional. Participation in Regional has grown to thousands of the finest students in computing disciplines.

This past year 46,000 contestants from 2,948 universities in 103 countries competed in regional competitions at over 532 sites worldwide. The winner team from each Regional contest advanced to compete in the ACM-ICPCWorld Finals.

This year the 42nd  World Finals will be held in April 2018 in Beijing China.
ACM-ICPC, the Association of Computer Machinery – InternationalCollegiate Programming Competition, Regional contest i.e.ACM-ICPC Lahore Regional 2017, is going to be held at UMT, Lahore. The Computer Science Department of UMT Lahore will organize this event.
