Plans are underway for the SEARCC International Schools Competition (ISSC) 2017 to be held in conjunction with the annual SEARCC Conference and Sri Lanka’s National IT Conference in Colombo from 10-16 September, 2017.

Hosted by the Computer Society of Sri Lanka (CSSL), ISSC 2017 will seek to foster the development of computer competence among young people in the region.

SEARCC instituted a regional school software competition in 1989. The competition, which is run under international competition rules, is open to students aged 18 or less. In addition to testing their programming abilities, the event also provides opportunities for young people from across the region to acquire a better awareness of the culture, life-style and aspirations of each other’s countries, thereby contributing to better relationships for future generations.

The International Schools Software Competition 2017 (ISSC 2017) will be held at University of Colombo School of Computing, Colombo, Sri Lanka.  

National teams are encouraged to register their interest in participating by contacting CSSL at
