Where will IOI 2013 be held?

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.
