On January 14, 2012 at ETH Zurich the day of the Swiss Olympiad in Informatics will take place. 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 ant-programs. And of course the award ceremony takes place there as well.

The highlight of this year‘s programme is the talk of Prof. Dr. Donald E. Knuth, winner of the Turing Award and often referred to as the „father“ of the analysis of algorithms. His talk «All Questions Answered» will be a discussion based on questions from the audience. Please think of interesting questions and send us your questions in advance on this page.
