One of the main events of the Computing Week is the ACM-ICPC World Finals. The ACM-ICPC traces its roots to a competition held at Texas A&M University in 1970. Russian universities participate in the contest since 1993 and become medalists regularly. For example in 2011 the team of the Ural State University (Ural Federal University) won the bronze medal. As a rule more than 100 teams from 83 countries participate in the contest. Each team consists of three contestants. The championship is sponsored by IBM.

The 2012 World Finals were held in Warsaw, Poland. They were inaugurated on 15th of May and hosted by Warsaw University. Saint Petersburg State University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics won their fourth world championship, leaving all other universities behind by the number of won championships at a time.

In Warsaw with the support of the Administration of Ekaterinburg the Ural capital submitted an official request to participate in the nomination to host the 2016 ACM-ICPC World Finals in the Ural Federal University. On the basis of the presentation the bid committee adopted a decision to visit Ekaterinburg in September 2012.
