Announcing the ICPC Graph Mining Challenge, Powered by Huawei and brought to you by ICPC U. Graphs are a powerful mechanism for representing many aspects of our daily lives, from mobile call routing to disease tracking. Answering various graph-related questions enables solutions to some of the most challenging, modern problems. The ICPC Challenge presents a problem from some area in computing. The area and problem style may be very different from the standard ICPC problems. Previous contests included new programming languages, multi-agents, parallel programming, etc. The ICPC Challenge provides a platform for ICPC to experiment with new problem types. It also provides participants with experience in some new area and problem type.

The ICPC Graph Mining Challenge will take place online during ICPC Day Zero on 27 June, 2020, 11:00-14:00 UTC. This round is unrated for all participants.
