Martinez, President of De La Salle Canlubang, this year's host institution for the ACM ICPC Philippines 2007... Raffy, 10/12/07)


Welcome to De La Salle Canlubang.

We are most privileged to host the First National Inter-Collegiate Programming Competition (ACM ICPC Philippines 2007).

As a national competition among the best Computer Science majors in the country that would select the contestants to be sponsored to the regional competition in Singapore and eventually the world finals in Alberta, Canada, the ACM ICPC Philippines 2007 is a veryworthwhile project.

Barely 5 years old, De La Salle Canlubang is happy to be a part of ICPC 2007.

I congratulate the Computing Society of the Philippines (CSP) for organizing the event in cooperation with such a prestigious organization as the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM).

Education is one essential key to moving the country forward. Being the science and technology campus of the De La Salle Philippines, with a Lasallian education tradition that is turning 100 years in the year 2011, we look forward to joining hands with the CSP, ACM, and the many universities in the country in being at the forefront of computer science educationand research.

I hope that the ACM ICPC Philippines 2007 would facilitate educational experiences that will help Computer Science majors in their future careers as much as helping our country achieve prosperity for everyone.

In St La Salle,

Br. Joaquin S. Martinez FSC, D. Min.
President, De La Salle Canlubang
