Meetings of the ISC
- A Proposal for an IOI Syllabus
- Article by
Tom Verhoeff, Gyula Horváth, Krzysztof Diks, Gordon Cormack
appeared in Teaching Mathematics and Computer Science,
Vol. IV, Issue 1, pp.193-216.
At IOI 2006,
the ISC approved and adopted the proposed IOI Syllabus for internal use by ISC.
- Until 30 November 2006, ISC collects written feedback on
IOI syllabus proposal.
Send your feedback to T.Verhoeff@tue.nl.
- Until 28 February 2007, ISC reviews and consolidates feedback,
and prepares response, which is presented to IC and published.
- IC discusses this at their halfway meeting (March 2007, Croatia).
- Statistics about scores
- Concepts, Terminology, and Notations
for IOI Competition Tasks
In this document, we classify concepts, terminology and notations with
respect to their usability in IOI competition tasks. We distinguish
three usability classes: basic knowledge (can be used without further
ado), to-be-defined (can be used, but must be defined explicitly), and
to-be-avoided (must not be used). The classification primarily concerns
the use in task descriptions, which are presented to contestants at the
beginning of the competition. But it also concerns solutions handed out
after the competition. This classification can benefit both organizers
and participants in their preperations for an IOI competition.
