The ICPC Training Camp powered by Huawei is an international program initiated by the International Collegiate Programming Contest University Commons (ICPCU). It aims to provide an extended platform to support high-level programming training and innovation for college students who are passionate about programming and algorithms. Huawei’s support for the ICPC Training Camp continues in its commitment to open research platforms that are oriented to the future of information terminals, computing, and connectivity. Huawei is committed to create opportunity for the next generation of problem solvers as they explore challenging subject areas that advance science and technology and propel industry to meet the needs of tomorrow.

Innovative Approach
The Training Camp is the first international training program that supports participants during the entire period of their preparations for the upcoming competition season, with an innovative approach to training, as problems are being created and solved by participants from different parts of the world. The Camp begins with an online intensive program, followed by a series of monthly training activities and scrimmages, culminating in an intensive on-site training course. Problem solving techniques are carefully analyzed by the coaches and discussed in groups, creating a collaborative environment and enriching student’s problem solving techniques along with fostering teamwork. The ICPC Training Camp is free of charge for all registered participants courtesy of Huawei.

What will you learn?
We will bring together our global community of contestants, ICPC coaches and alumni, the industry and academia to share problem-solving strategies and insights as well as to strengthen programming skills and to get ready for the most advanced level competitions.

Community Event
The Training camp kicks off a series of multi-regional training activities of the ICPC University Commons with the main goal of providing an open environment and continuous learning opportunities for existing competitors through the best academic and industry practices.

Training Camp problems are being rigorously prepared by the ICPC community membership, including coaches from the ICPC World Finals championship teams. Industrial challenge problems are developed by the leading Huawei experts in the area of AI, Wireless Technologies etc.

Several online activities will be organized in conjunction with ICPC NERC (Petrozavodsk State University, ITMO University) Training Camp to exchange knowledge, compete with current champions, and learn from world renowned coaches, including Andrey Stankevich (ITMO), Gennadiy Korotkevich (ITMO), Mikhail Tikhomirov (MIPT) in real-time! The on-site training camp in Shanghai will include coaches and representatives from Peking University, Tsinghua University, and Fudan University etc.

This year’s training program will also include an ICPC Challenge powered by Huawei. The Challenge problem is based on a real-world industrial topic, providing participants the opportunity to learn about cutting-edge technologies. Winners will receive remarkable prizes from the company.

How can i join?
Due to the current pandemic situation, the first phase of this training will occur online. This will be followed by a series of online monthly activities and scrimmages, culminating in an intensive invitation-only 5-day Shanghai ICPC training powered by Huawei in May 2021 (exact date will be communicated to you and your coach shortly, once the epidemiological situation is clear).

Eligibility: Invitation-only team competition, based on ICPC finalists for select championships in ICPC competitions.

ICPC University thanks Huawei for providing additional training and learning opportunities for all ICPC regions. We look forward to welcoming eligible participants to upcoming events!
