The Canadian Computing Competition (CCC) aims to benefit secondary school students with an interest in programming. It is an opportunity for students to test their ability in designing, understanding and implementing algorithms. It is also used to determine participation in the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI).
Junior Level — any student with at most one course credit in computer science programming
Senior Level — all other students
Any student may choose to participate in the Senior contest.
Stage 1 — Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Stage 2 — Monday, May 13 to Friday May 17, 2013 (by invitation only)
Schools register online. The deadline is February 12, 2013. View fees.
Registrations are also accepted by fax or e-mail.
Schools that have not registered for previous contests are encouraged to participate.
The CCC rules and guidelines describe the structure of the competition, allowed programming languages, format of the Stage 1 contest and grading process.
The CCC is also held in China at The University of Hong Kong and Tsinghua University.
Preparing for the Competition
We encourage students to prepare. Places to begin include:
If you are interested in participating in the CCC but have not learned how to program, then you might want to investigate CS Circles.
Results booklets (Stage 1 and Stage 2), stage 1 regional winners, stage 2 invitees, andaverages and cutoffs are online. Teachers can access their students’ results.
We recognize top-performing students.
