The John von Neumann Computer Society (NJSZT), together with the Hungarian Government and the local municipality, are organising this year’s Central-European Olympiad of Informatics (CEOI) in Nagykanizsa, from 23 – 29 August 2020.
Inspired by the ever-increasing popularity of the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) for secondary school students, teams of eight Central European countries (Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia) have been organising the CEOI every year since 1994 to provide the new generation of competitors of IOI with an opportunity to compare their skills. Each year one of the founder countries is the host. The founders are invited as regular participants. The host country may also invite guest participants.
This year Hungary is hosting the event and, in these unusual times, managing this competition is a challenge. However, the organising committee, delegated by NJSZT, is working hard to make this contest fantastic and unforgettable not only with the professional content but with many fun out-of-contest activities as well. The following countries will participate this year: Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland, the Netherlands.
The organisers are prepared to hold the event online if the circumstances demand. Whether in person or online, the organisers hope to have successful and memorable event for the young talents, who could even be the John Neumanns of the future.
