  • Description

Faculty of Computer and Information Science, University of Ljubljana hosted from 10th to 15th of July the 24th edition of CEOI - Central European Olympiad in Informatics. CEOI is a regional Olympiad that connects nine countries - Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. Besides the mentioned countries, this year participated at CEOI with a special invitation also five more countries: Azerbaijan, Georgia, Israel, Italy and Switzerland. Altogether, 58 competitors from 14 different countries participated at the CEOI.

This was the first time that Slovenia had ever hosted an Olympiad in informatics. The main reason for hosting the CEOI was to raise computer science awareness among high school students. Consequently, students of five Ljubljana high schools joined the organization. Throughout the competition, participants exchanged their knowledge and experience and solved problems using computers. CEOI is a great opportunity for students since its winners frequently win on the world-wide level of the competition as well. Not just that, the winners of CEOI are among the most wanted future professionals in ICT field worldwide.

Olympiad was organized by UL FRI in cooperation with ACM Slovenia and the help of many sponsors. You can read more on CEOI at https://ceoi2017.acm.si/ and at https://www.facebook.com/ceoi2017/.
