News & Announcements

Registration for the 2017 Stanford Local ACM Programming Contest is open! Note that registration closes Thursday this year!

Registered contestants are encouraged to read the instructions document for the rules before the contest starts.


Welcome to the 2017 edition of the Stanford Local Programming Contest!

The SLPC will be five hour contest, and, just as last year's contest, you can compete as an individual or as part of a team of up to three. However, we ask that everyone who represented Stanford in any previous regional contest competes individually. Please indicate this preference when registering.

Once again, Stanford will be hosting a local programming contest to select the students who will represent Stanford at the 2017 ACM Pacific NW Region Programming Contest. If we qualify, one of our teams will be heading to the 2018 ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest World Finals in Beijing, China!

The ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest pits teams of three individuals working on a single computer against a host of problems (typically 10) that must be solved in five hours. These problems can generally be solved by careful analysis and application of algorithms taught in undergraduate computer science. Some are quite challenging. For examples, see the problems from previous years of this contest.

All students are welcome to come out an participate in the Stanford Local Programming Contest, whether you are officially eligible to compete in the ACM-ICPC or not. We hope to see you there!
