International Olympiad in Informatics
This year the International Olympiad in Informatics is in Almaty, Kazakhstan(25th July - 2nd August 2015) and we will be sending a full Irish team of fourstudents to the competition.
Therefore the top eight senior students from the finals will be invited to the AIPO-IOI training camp (22nd-24th June 2015) here on campus in DCU.
This will be an intensive 3 day camp in the strategies and techniques required to solve problems at the IOI. The best four students from this training camp will be select to represent Ireland at the IOI (fully funded).
