Since the launch of the contest on October 1, we had over 100 participants in our first round and the competition was never so strong. We hope you liked the tasks!

What are the next steps?

  1. From December 1st until March 18, we have our Round 2H. 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. We select the top 16 of the first round, the next 6 students who can participate again in the following year (2019-2020) at SOI as well as 2 participants selected by the jury. You can expect a mail about that in the next weeks. We’ll also provide a workshop for those participants to get strong bases before the camp, details for that will be written by mail.
  3. On January 5, 2019, 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.
  4. Our second round takes place in two parts (plus the round 2H), one on-site on March 9 in Zurich and Lausanne and one online between March 15 and 18.
