  • International Olympiad in Informatics Training Camp
Participation in Indian Computing Olympiad:

The Indian Computing Olympiad comprises of two rounds:

  • The first round is the Zonal Informatics Olympiad. It is a written test with questions, which can be solved using algorithmic techniques & logic.
  • The Zonal Informatics Olympiad also has an online version, known as Zonal Computing Olympiad. Students can take part in either one of them or both.
  • The second round is the Indian National Olympiad in Informatics, which is a 3 hour long online programming competition. Students can solve problems in C, C++ or Pascal. The questions of INOI are similar to the ones asked in International Olympiad in Informatics.
  • Top 25 students from these contests are selected for the International Olympiad in Informatics Training Camp, where they are trained to represent India at International Olympiad of Informatics.

International Olympiad of Informatics 2015 Results:
CodeChef has extended their Go For Gold program, which was created to see an Indian college student win gold at the ACM ICPC world finals to the Indian Middle/High School students. More on the ACM ICPC Go For Gold program can be read here.

Under our IOI Go For Gold initiative we want to see a Indian middle/high school student win gold medal at International Olympiads in Informatics.

The coveted Go For Gold award for the year 2015 goes unclaimed. However, the performance of the Indian contingent bettered the last years medal tally, with all four students bringing medals home. The students who brought glory to India were:

  • Malvika Raj Joshi of Chashak Gurukul, Mumbai - Silver
  • Kushagra Juneja, Apeejay School, Pitampura, New Delhi - Bronze
  • Tanay Kothari, Delhi Public School, R K Puram, New Delhi - Bronze
  • Arjun P, Chennai Public School, Chennai - Bronze

We wish to see more and more students taking up computer programming while they are in school and to bring glory to their school, parents, and the whole nation.
