My warmest congratulations to the participants of the Second Philippine National Inter-Collegiate Programming Competition (ACM ICPC Philippines 2008).The holding of the the ACM ICPC Philippines 2008 in Cebu City is another milestone for the Computing Society of the Philippines (CSP). It is another evidence of the readiness of Cebu City to expand and improve its capacity as an IT hub and the resolve of our partner universities to push for improvement of computer science and information technology programs throughout the country.
We at CSP are privileged to organize the national programming competition in partnership with the prestigious Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). Past winners of our national contest have performed well in international competitions. On behalf of CSP, I would like to thank Dr. Rafael Saldaña for his project leadership and Dean Gregg Victor Gabison for heading the local organizing committee and hosting this event in the University of San Jose –Recoletos.
Again, congratulations to all and best wishes!
