The Syrian Olympiad in Informatics (SOI) (Arabic: الأولمبياد المعلوماتي السوري) is an annual informatics competition for students under 20 years old, organized by the Syrian Computer Society.
There are three divisions for students depending on their age: under-12, under-15 and under-20. The under-20 division contest requires solving problems of an algorithmic nature, and the four highest-ranking contestants are qualified to form the Syrian team participating in the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI), one of the most recognized computer science competitions in the world.
Famous quotes containing the word syrian:
“If in that Syrian garden, ages slain,
You sleep, and know not you are dead in vain,
Nor even in dreams behold how dark and bright
Ascends in smoke and fire by day and night
The hate you died to quench and could but fan,
Sleep well and see no morning, son of man.”
—A.E. (Alfred Edward)
