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.
On 11 January 2014, the SOI-Day will take place at ETH Zurich. We prepared an exciting programme, filled with talks of computer scientists, explanations and solutions for the tasks of the first round and the live tournament of the “Cops and Robbers”-programs. Moreover, we will present the ranking of the first round and award amazing prizes.
The event is open to the public. You are very welcome to attend also if you did not participate this year. You are invited to bring along your friends, parents, teachers or other interested persons. This is a great occasion to get to know the SOI!
