Basic Requirements & Rules

Each university or college in Asia can organize teams to participate in the regional contests at any Asia site.

A contestant may not compete in World Finals for more than two (2) years. A team may participate in the Asia Regional Contest, bypassing the School, Provincial, Invitational, and National levels.

  1. A student must be willing and able to compete in the World Finals.
  2. A student must be enrolled in a degree program at the sponsoring institution with at least a half-time load. This rule is not to be construed as disqualifying co-op students, exchange students, students serving internships, or extramural students.
  3. A student may compete for only one institution during a contest year.
  4. A student who has competed in two World Finals is NOT eligible to compete.
  5. A student has competed in five Regional Contests is NOT eligible to compete.

If a team has registered and does not cancel their registration at least ten (10) days before the contest date, and does not show up to the contest, this team’s contestants will be disqualified for all other contest sites in the same contest year. Cancellation of registration does not qualify for any refund.

The team members for the team advancing to the World Finals must be identical to the members who participated in the Asia On-Site Regional Contest. No substitution or reserves will be allowed in the World Finals. Any alteration to the team will disqualify the team in the World Finals. However, Asia Regional Contests may allow reserve team member registration and may allow the substitution of the team member in the Asia Regional Contest, provided that the team composition change is entered in the ICPC registration system web site before the Regional On-site Contest. Any change to the team after that regional contest is not allowed.

Period of Eligibility

  1. A student who meets the Basic Requirements and FIRST began post-secondary studies in 2013 or later is eligible to compete.
  2. A student who meets the Basic Requirements and was born in 1994 or later is eligible to compete.
