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

Charlotte Knierim

The first round has ended. We thank you for participating and we hope you enjoyed the tasks!

What are the next steps?

  1. From December 3rd 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 finalize the ranking and invite 24 participants into our SOI camp in Sarnen. You can expect a mail around December 20th that contains your results and whether you’ve been selected. We’ll also provide a workshop to cover the basics before the camp, details for that will be written latter by mail.
  3. On January 13th, 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. The second round will consist of two practical exams. There won’t be any theoretical part as in previous years. More information and the exact dates will come in the qualification email.

  1. To enjoy the advent with relaxing tasks, you can solve daily problems at the Advent of Code. The tasks are slightly easier than those at SOI. If you want, you can join our private leaderboard under the code 657351-f7608820.
