This year 103 teams qualified for theWorld Finals from "22,000 contestants from 1,931 universities at 240 regional contests worldwide" (ACM).   The South Pacific Region was represented in the World Finals by The University of Western Australia, our regional contest winners who represented Australia, and University of Canterbury representing New Zealand.

Thanks to IBM, the event sponsors, who provide the accommodation, food and activities that make the World Finals such an experience for the teams, and to Harbin Engineering University, the hosts.
