Does somebody know where will be held? Why have they taken so long to announce it? As far as I know, the host of next competition is always announced formally at the closing ceremony, but this wasn't the case at Beijing 2018.

Has this happened before? I am just asking out of curiosity :)

Update

There hasn't been an official announcement, but Bill Poucher said (kinda) that it will be held on Porto!

You can read his "announcement" here

Second update

ICPC has made an official announcement on ICPCNews! You can see the facebook post here

Yay!

There is a Quora answer by Bill Poucher about it, and it is getting updated from time to time: link.

Looks like either we'll get to know it today, or the answer will be edited once again.

I asked about ICPC World Finals 2019 host from Bill Poucher, on September 10. This is his reply to this question.

    I bet 1000000007 dollars it's Jordan.

        Plot twist: the amount of money you'd win is taken modulo 1000000007.

      Yikes. My coach said our university probably wouldn't allow us to be sent to Jordan. I'd imagine the situation is similar for most US universities. :(

      I highly doubt it.

      One can check that in only one of the mentioned locations all rooms in some hotels are sold out in April 2019. This location is Porto.
