The Ateneo de Manila University, through the Department of Information Systems and Computer Science, is proud to host the 2022 ICPC Asia-Manila Regional Programming Contest, continuing from experiences since 2016.

The ICPC Asia-Manila Regionals 2022 serves as one of the qualifiers for the 2023 ICPC World Finals.

The ICPC traces its roots to 1970 when the first competition was hosted by pioneers of the Alpha Chapter of the UPE Computer Science Honor Society. The initiative spread quickly within the United States and Canada as an innovative program to increase ambition, problem-solving aptitude, and opportunities for the strongest students in the field of computing.

Over time, the contest evolved into a multi-tier competition with the first championship round conducted in 1977. Since then, the contest has expanded into a worldwide collaborative of universities hosting regional competitions that advance teams to the annual global championship round, the ICPC World Finals.

The International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) is the premier global programming competition conducted by and for the world’s universities. The ICPC is affiliated with the ICPC Foundation.
