The China Collegiate Programming Contest (CCPC) is a competitive programming contest series for college students in China, organized by the CCPC Committee, which consists of coaches of the competitive programming teams of Chinese universities. It started in 2015, and this year is the 5th edition of CCPC. There are 4 onsite CCPC contests this year, including three regional contests in Qinhuangdao, Harbin and Xiamen, as well as the CCPC Final in Beijing. Many Chinese universities use CCPC as an opportunity to practice before the ICPC regionals.
The 2019 CCPC Harbin Site has recently ended on October 13 in Northeast Forestry University. A total of 272 teams, most of whom were selected from the preliminary online contest, took part in the official onsite contest in Harbin. The problems for this contest were mostly prepared by retired ICPC participants of Zhejiang University, and the head judge was me.
