Central European Olympiad In Informatics

The Central European Olympiad in Informatics (CEOI) is an annual informatics competition for secondary school students. Each of the participating central European countries (plus one or two guest countries, and a local team from the host area) sends a team of up to four contestants, a team leader and a deputy team leader. The contestants compete individually, i.e. a team score is not calculated. Competitors are selected through national computing contests.

The contest consists of two days computer programming, solving problems of an algorithmic nature. The structure of these competition days is described in the article about the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI), which served as a role model for the invention of the more local CEOI.

The first CEOI was held in 1994 (Romania, founder of the CEOI), five years after the first IOI.

Famous quotes containing the words european and/or central:

    Being human signifies, for each one of us, belonging to a class, a society, a country, a continent and a civilization; and for us European earth-dwellers, the adventure played out in the heart of the New World signifies in the first place that it was not our world and that we bear responsibility for the crime of its destruction.
    Claude Lévi-Strauss (b. 1908)

    Incarnate devil in a talking snake,
    The central plains of Asia in his garden,
    In shaping-time the circle stung awake,
    In shapes of sin forked out the bearded apple....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
