About

The Calgary Collegiate Programming Contest (CCPC) provides post-secondary students in Calgary with the opportunity to excel in an ACM ICPC-style programming competition. Students test their aptitude and knowledge against a set of programming puzzles requiring problem-solving, programming, math, and teamwork skills. Teams are ranked according to the number of problems solved within four hours. The CCPC is sponsored by Synopsys and provides a platform for the next generation of computing professionals to pursue excellence. Kattis has graciously sponsored the judging platform.

Contest Format

Teams of 1-3 students will compete to solve a set of 5-10 programming puzzles over a four hour period. The set will have a good mix of problems varying both in difficulty and subject domain. Most of the problems can be solved through cleverness rather than specialized knowledge, although the latter is an asset. Common subjects for problems include combinatorics, graph theory, number theory, and geometry.

Prize Eligibility

In order to be eligible for prizes, contestants must be:

  • Enrolled in a post-secondary institution in Calgary, Alberta (undergraduate or graduate)
  • In teams of 1 to 3 members
  • Participating in the same division as everyone else on their team
  • (Extra requirement for Division 2) Students who have not taken (or not currently taking) a data structures course, e.g. CPSC 319/331
