End of the First Round 2020/2021

The first round has ended. What's up next?

Florian Gatignon

Since the launch of the contest on September 15, we had over 100 participants in our first round, and in spite of the circumstances, the competition was once again extremely fierce. We hope you liked the tasks!

What are the next steps?

  1. From December 1st until the end of the practical part of the second round, we have our Round 2H (Grader). You can get 200 from a total of 1000 points of the second round by solving the 2H tasks at home.
  2. We will correct your submissions and invite 24 participants into our SOI camp in Sarnen. You can expect a mail in two weeks whether you’ve been selected. We’ll also provide a workshop (probably online) for those participants to get strong bases before the camp, details for that will be written by mail.
  3. In January, we’ll have the SOI Day, in which we publish the results of the first round, present master solutions and have interesting talks. There will be an invitation later by mail and in this blog.
  4. Our second round takes place in two parts (plus the round 2H), one theoretical and one practical. The dates will be announced very soon. Those exams will take place on two weekends in March.
  5. You can train daily at the Advent of Code. The tasks are slightly easier than those at SOI and you should be able to solve them relatively quickly. You should have received an email with a link to our private leaderboard.
