The University of Queensland (UQ) is delighted to welcome you to the 2013 International Olympiad in Informatics. This 2013 event is highly significant for UQ, as it is a first for Australasia, and will grant exciting opportunities to young computer scientists from approximately 90 countries.

Many of these secondary school students will become integral to essential global industries, and they deserve to be celebrated as vigorously as young sporting Olympians.

I thank you for your keen interest in the competition. Please enjoy the hospitality of UQ and our hosting partner, the Australian Mathematics Trust, and make the most of UQ’s beautiful St Lucia campus and the surrounding city and region.
