In conjunction with the computer science portion of the conference, the Computer Science Committee coordinates the Atlantic division of the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC).

Each year, approximately 20 teams of three students each solve complex problems under a time limit. The top teams from the competition go on to the Eastern North America division competition.

About

The Computer Science Committee promotes the study of computer science in the Atlantic region, with the recruitment and support of students, faculty, and researchers as its primary focus. Membership consists of representatives from computer science programs at the universities in Atlantic Canada, and discussions focus on student recruitment, program offerings, and recent developments in computing science.

The annual conference is a venue for students, faculty, and researchers to present research projects and to discuss common issues and the latest developments and innovations. The highlight of the annual conference is the programming competition, which is a preliminary round of the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC).
