http://aipo.computing.dcu.ie/2017-aipo-preliminary-round-problems

To submit solutions to this year's AIPO, you must do so through this website. If you do not have an account on our site, please register here:
 
 
Once you have registered and logged into the AIPO website, you can submit solutions using the 'Create content' link in the right hand block. You will see a 'Upload Solutions' link under 'Create content'.
 
Solutions can be submitted in the following languages: C, C++, Java, Pascal or Python. Solutions are graded automatically on submission and results returned via your registration email. Each problem has a 1 minute execution time limit.
 
Solution files must be named as follows:
 
p1.c, p1.cpp, p1.py, p1.pas or p1.java
 
p2.c, p2.cpp, p2.py, p2.pas or p2.java
 
etc.
 
Note: the system will rename py files to py.txt after you upload them. This is fine and will be accepted.
 
You can submit as many solution files as you wish and you can use any of the languages on each problem. Once you submit a correct solution for problem further solution code for that problem will not be evalutated.
 
Best of luck and hope to see you all at the National Finals in DCU on the 25th February 2017!

Team Ireland go close at the Informatics Olympics in Russia

IOI2016-Pic1Like Ireland’s 400m sprinter Thomas Barr at the Rio Olympics, Team Ireland came very close to getting a Bronze medal at the Olympics of High-School Programming in Russia.

Teofil Camarasu, a sixth year student from Dundalk Community School came within 11 points of attaining a Bronze medal among 308 of the smartest young computer programmers from around the planet. 81 countries brought delegations to the prestigious 28th International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) in Kazan, Russia for one the toughest tests of these young students’ lives. The IOI is one of five international science Olympiads for secondary school students with this Olympiad focusing on computing science and information technology and was first initiated by UNESCO in 1989. Each student must solve 6 algorithmic problems over two days of competition, with points awarded for how quickly their coded solution runs against large data inputs.

AIPO-IOI Team Ireland 2016

The cream of young irish programming talent rose to the top of the AIPO leaderboard after 3 days of intensive algorithmic coding challenges in DCU this week. Four young men are on their way to the trip of a lifetime to the Olympics of high school programming in Russia in August.

Eoin Davey (18yr) from Summerhill College, Sligo, Teofil Camarasu (18yr) from Dundalk Grammar School, Louth, John Ryan (17yr) from St. Joseph's College, Thules, Tipperary and Kieran Horgan (15yr) from Davis College, Mallow, Cork have been chosen to represent Ireland at the 28th International Olympiad Informatics in Kazan, Russia.
