The Australian Informatics Olympiad (AIO) is an open national computer programming competition held annually.
Students write short computer programs to solve six problems that vary in difficulty. The competition does not test computer literacy or knowledge but is focused on problem solving through programming skills.
There are two papers – Intermediate for students up to year 10, and Senior for students up to year 12. Each paper consists of six problems, and students submit the source code for their solutions online during the three-hour contest.
Every participant will receive a certificate, and the top 25 students will be invited to a 10-day intensive training school in December where they will learn higher-level algorithms and data structures.
Registrations close on Thursday 20 August, and the competition is held on Thursday 27 August.
