Welcome to the
Pacific NW Region Programming Contest! The Pacific NW Region is
comprised of the following areas: Alaska,
Hawaii, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon,
northern/central California and western Nevada. Because of the large
geographic area of the region, the contest is held simultaneously at multiple sites: Northern
California, Northwest (Oregon),
Northeast (E. WA and Idaho), Puget Sound (Western Washington),
Canada, and Hawaii.
Sponsored By JetBrains. North America Sponsored by Two Sigma
Registration is OPEN!

Many hearfelt thanks to our contest
sponsors for 2017
Please thank our two new ACM ICPC
major contest sponsors: JetBrains and Two Sigma. THANK YOU
JetBrains and Two Sigma!!!
local sponsors are listed below. Each of these companies has opportunities for students via
internships and full time employment. Thanks to our local
sponsors, team costs are some of the lowest in all of North America!
(D1) is for teams that are VERY
STRONG algorithmically. The D1 problem
set is difficult. It
is along the lines of a lite version of what you would see at
World Finals. Check the Results tab above and view D1
performance from years past. Many teams have had a difficult
II (D2) is approachable for teams that
have not completed the algorithm sequence at their school and/or have
not competed in programming contests before.
Almost all problems in D2 can be solved using techniques at the CS1 and
Most teams in this division have a great chance at solving many
problems. If a team does well in this division this year,
that team should try D1 next year! Participating in D2 will
not count against your eligibility for World Finals in future years
(other than the rules established by ICPC itself based on age/year in
school -- see the Contest Rules tab above for more information on the
ICPC rules). When registering a team for
D2 on the ICPC registration site, include 'D2' at the beginning of the
team name. See the Registration
tab above for more information.
note: Only D1 teams are
eligible for slots in the World Finals.
following zip file contains three problems that serve as a baseline for
competing in Division 1. If a team cannot solve these three
problems, that team should compete in Divsion 2. The file
contains input, output, and solutions to each problem along with a
README that includes hints. The file size is ~15MB.
We will once
again support Python. We will support Python 2 and
3. We are also supporting C# via the Mono Project.
Please see the Details tab for more information.
