Qualification stage of the ICPC Programming World Championship at MEPhI


MEPhI became one of 18 hosting sites for the qualification stage of the Moscow Programming Contest – a 1/8th stage of the International Collegiate Programming Contest. 

The contest set a new record for the number of participants: 1275 students, 423 teams, 35 universities. The result was recorded at the Russian Register of Records. Top 100 teams passed on to the next round.

Nine teams representing MEPhI participated in the competition. Four teams went on to the quarter-finals.

The competition was held pursuant to the rules of the ICPC World Cup on the Yandex.Const platform. Participants had to solve 12 problems in C, C ++, Java, Python or Kotlin, which took approximately 5 hours. Each team consisted of three students, who were either under the age of 24, or those who began their studies at the institute no earlier than 2014. If a team did not satisfy the rules of the championship, it could still participate but could not enter the competition.

The event was supported by the Federal Agency Rosmolodezh and the Presidential Grants Fund. Partners of the competition were Raiffeisenbank, MegaFon, Yandex and Huawei.

The next qualifying round - the quarter-finals - will be held on October 26 at the Music Media Dome in Moscow. ICPC Global Deputy Executive Director Jeff Donahue will open the event with a speech. 

The ICPC World Cup is the premier global sports programming competition held by universities around the world. It is headquartered at the Baylor University (USA, Texas, Waco). The competitive environment of the event helps participants to test their teamwork skills and to show their creative aspirations in addition to stimulating the creation of new software products.
