The final round of the Swiss Olympiad in Informatics is coming up. On the weekends of the 16th/17th and 23rd/24th of May a total of 12 young, aspiring computer scientists are battling for one of the four spots in the Swiss Team for the International Olympiad in Informatics.
The closing ceremony will take place on Saturday, 24th of May 2014 at 4pm. After four contests and a total of 20 hours of programming, the winners will be announced.
The practical contest 2P is over and we finished correcting the submissions for 2T and can therefore now publish the results of the second round of SOI 2014. In the theoretical part the maximum points per task was 10, giving a total of 40 points for the theoretical part. We scaled those 40 points to 400 points (maximum of the practical part) and added them to the scores of the practical part. So the sum is your total out of 800 points.
The best 12 contestants (marked in bold) are invited to the SOI 2014 Finals, which are going to be held in Zurich May 16th/17th and May 23th/24th.
Special congratulations to Timon Stampfpli, Fabian Lyck, Benjamin Schmid and Luca Mondada for scoring full score in 2P and to Hanna Müller and Timon Stampfli for the highest scores in 2T!
Over the course of this weekend the practical contest of the second round will take place. All qualified participants got an email with their credentials and can start here: SOI 2P contest site.
We wish everyone good luck and let us know if you have any problems at info[aet]soi[punkt]ch .
We spent the week from February 10 to 15 in our annual training camp in Davos. This year we were pleased to invite the twelve best-performing participants from this year's first round as well as three guest delegations from Slovakia, Russia and Israel.
Once assembled in the snowy mountain resort, we started with a few introductory board games and trivia quizzes to get to know each other. Right after dinner some first programming challenges waited to be solved.
The rankings of the first round 2014 are available. Congratulations to all participants who qualified for the second round or even our training camp in Davos.
We had a SOI day full of interesting talks, an intense 'cops and robbers' tournament and some great prizes.
