ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC)
Asia Manila Regional Onsite Contest
October 22 - 23, 2009
Ateneo de Manila University, Philippines
Sponsored by IBM




Welcome to the 2009 ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest, Asia Regional Manila hosted by Ateneo de Manila University.

The ACM ICPC is a prestigious event that aims to raise the awareness of the public about the important role of Information Technology in the development of our country and our society.

It’s objective of bringing together bright and talented young people from different countries to take part in a grueling friendly competition, like a mental Olympiad, is quite noble.

To all participants and coaches, I hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to meet and interact with your fellow competitors from all over the Philippines and other countries in Asia.

I also hope that you will also enjoy your stay at the Ateneo de Manila University.

Finally, I would like to thank the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) for giving Ateneo de Manila University another chance to host the prestigious ICPC event in Manila. I would also like to thank my co-organizers, judges, volunteers, and our sponsors for making the 2009 Asia Programming Contest-Manila a success.
