ACM ICPC 2019
Participation in Indian Regionals

For the ACM ICPC 2018 - 2019 Indian regionals, there will be 4 sites within India. The four regional sites include - Amritapuri, NITTTR, Kolkata (multisite with UIET Kanpur), IIT Kharagpur and IIITM Gwalior (multisite with IIIT Pune).

However, we have a new host (IIIT Pune) for the India regionals. Teams will be moving to the World Finals from all the 4 sites. Here’s everything you need to know about participation in Indian regionals.

  • Participants need to register on the Baylor Site to be eligible to take part in the contest. Click here to register.
  • There will only be one online round for all the 4 India regionals.
  • You must not register your team for more than two sites, as that will lead to your disqualification from all regionals.
  • An individual in Asia can take part in regionals for 5 years (and not 5 regionals).
  • Based on the performance of the online round, each regional site will decide on the number of teams to be invited for the on-site round.
  • Preference will be given to maximize the number of colleges participating in the on-site round.
  • Each regional site will have a few slots booked for advancing the top teams to the World Finals based on the performance of the teams in their on-site rounds.
