The UCC ACM Student Chapter will host the 11th annual Irish Collegiate Programming Competition (IrlCPC) taking place on the 20th March 2021. Regrettably this years competition must be held online. Each team of competitors will tackle a problem set that will test their problem solving, numeracy and computer programming skills.

This competition is not for novice programmers but those who have a passion for programming.
