The CCPC, backed by China Association of Collegiate Programming Contest, is an annual international event open to undergraduates around the world, meant to present their programming skills, innovation capabilities as well as the ability to collaborate. The contest is aimed at encouraging the undergraduates to apply their programming knowledge and skills to those problems occurred in the daily life, inspiring their interests to learn algorithm and programming and developing their collaboration consciousness and the awareness to embrace the challenge. The competitors have to deal with 12 computer programming problems of great difficulty within five hours, which needs meticulous logical analysis, strategy making and high abilities to implement the program. The contest itself is a great challenge.
Fierce competition at the scene
The CCPC was the highest profile contest in the field of programming at home held in China. All the universities involved sent their strongest members. The contest has been the best one among all previous collegiate programming contests in terms of the numbers and the ranges of the competitors, as well as the scale of the representative universities.
