COVID-19 UPDATE

[Update: Tue 26 May 2020]

Dear friends of IOI,

Just a quick update from the IC concerning IOI 2020 and beyond. The IC held an online meeting yesterday on May 25. After some discussion, the following plan was approved unanimously:
1. IOI 2020 will be held online.  Detail will be forthcoming soon.
2. IOI 2021 will be hosted by Singapore (originally by Egypt).
3. IOI 2024 will be hosted by Egypt.

Thanks to the dedicated work by the Singapore host team, all possibilities for an onsite IOI 2020 were explored.  Unfortunately unpredictable outlook of COVID-19 forced us to move the competition online.  Furthermore, thanks to Eslam and the Egyptian host team for switching to host IOI 2024 so that Singapore can host IOI 2021 onsite.

With the move to an online competition, many working details will need to be discussed by IC, ISC and ITC.  We will keep you all updated as more information becomes available. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact the IOI Secretariat at secretary.ioinformatics@gmail.com.

Stay safe and Best wishes,
Greg Lee
IOI President

[Update: Tue 24 Mar 2020]

Dear friends of IOI,

As we are all aware, the international situation with COVID-19 is unpredictable and is changing rapidly. However challenging, all countries are united to fight the battle against this invisible foe. In this difficult time, our thoughts are with you all, and especially with those that have lost their dear ones in this pandemic around the world.

In the best interest of the health and well being of all IOI participants, the IC and the Singapore hosts have met online on March [21] to evaluate the current situation. As a result, we have the following information to share with the community:

1. IOI 2020 will NOT run in July as planned.
2. We are still aiming to have IOI2020 on-site in Singapore if at all possible. As a backup plan, we are looking seriously for an online IOI.
3. In whatever form it runs, IOI 2020 will not take place any earlier than September 2020.

We hope this new information will give you flexibility in making plans for selecting teams. The IC and hosts will continue to meet monthly, and we will keep you all updated as things develop further. If you have any questions, please contact the IOI Secretariat at secretary.ioinformatics@gmail.com.

Stay safe and Best wishes,
Greg Lee
IOI President
