The rules for the IOI 2013 competition are now available. Note that these are still tentative until they are approved by the General Assembly at the IOI.
All team leaders, deputy leaders and contestants should read and become familiar with the rules. There are some changes from previous years, highlighted at the start of the document.
Also available is an updated version of the IOI syllabus, which outlines the topics and concepts which may be used in IOI tasks.
Here’s the latest video – a guided tour of the University of Queensland! Find out more about where this year’s IOI will be held.

As the curtain closes on the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) 2012 in Lake Garda, Italy, and the world’s best and brightest young computer talents return home with their medals, all eyes are now on Australia – host of next year’s Olympiad.
Jointly organised by The University of Queensland and the Australian Mathematics Trust, the 2013 event will be hosted for the first time in Australia on UQ’s St Lucia campus in Brisbane, with participants travelling from more than 80 countries to compete in the event.

The venue for the International Olympiad in Informatics 2013 is the University of Queensland (St Lucia Campus) in Brisbane, Australia.
UQ’s St Lucia campus is considered by many to be Australia’s most attractive. Located seven kilometres from the city’s heart on a magnificent 114-hectare site in a bend of the Brisbane River, the campus has expansive landscaped grounds and many playing fields.
Its hub is a semi-circle of cloistered buildings enclosing the Great Court, which is on the Queensland Heritage Register as well as the Register of the National Trust of Queensland.
