Hey everyone,

I know that nearly everyone is looking towards China right now, but let's try (like in a previous year) to create a list of IOI 2018 participants.

The list can be found here: http://weaselcrow.com/pro/cf/ioi/18/

How to add or update data? Please fill the following form: https://goo.gl/forms/he4DlrzfKWw35lx73

Romania’s IOI team:

Oncescu Costin-Andrei geniucos

Tatomir Alex atatomir

Constantin-Buliga Stefan fanache99

Musat Tiberiu Tiberiu

I’ll upload the team via the system as well but figured that it’s better to post it here so that the blog will appear in the recent actions section and people would remember of the existence of this blog. I advise the other guys to do the same

I hope that there won't be a ton of predictions of another Chinese guy getting the champion as it was last year.

      It's funny how criticizing any comment that has lots of downvotes will always give people free upvotes.

          Please explain how your post is less "stupid" and "useless" than mine. And how your comment itself doesn't fall into the category of the type I described above.

              Just think about how little intellect you need to comment something like that and how you just typed a random number like a monkey and yet ironically and much to the point of my comment, it still gets so many upvotes.

                Wait, what was the point of your comment? Criticizing downvoted comments gives you upvotes? In other words, if people disagree with something, then they are likely to agree with the opposite. Seems like an adequate point to make.

                The reason you get downvoted and those making fun of you get upvoted is that many people are tired of you complaining whenever you fail a competition (even a year later, apparently). You also seem to lack a sense of humour. Stop over-dramatizing everything and move on, for everyone's sake.

                  I sort of agree on the complaining part. I indeed complained too much on Codeforces(I mean I wasn't wrong to complain, but this is not a good place to do it). And I would stop complaining(and probably I already did to some extent, you judge) in the future. However, I didn't and at least I didn't mean to complain in my original comment. I don't think that's the reason why I get downvotes. Is it that I shouldn't have written the comment so that it would sound humorous and that everybody would know I was just making a joke?

                  Even if so, I don't think it's reason to offend the another guy. It's unpleasantly and disgustingly for me to read this branch, honestly saying.

                  I feel people should stop being rude with matthew99 — it's not funny to see him being downvoted for some negative things he may sometimes say, while everyone else gets +100 on posts which do no more than bully him.

                  This is not how a strong community is meant to work.

    You can't really stop anyone from making any predictions for the IOI (or other contests) so the best way to not feel pressured because of it is to just ignore these predictions yourself.

Canadian IOI Team 2018:

Joey Yu (kobortor, grade 12, 0 tries left, 1 participation in 2017 with no medal)

Peter Zhou (duality, grade 8, 4 tries left, no previous IOI) //This is not a typo, he is really grade 8!

Victor Rong (r3mark, grade 11, 1 try left, no previous IOI)

Ava Pun (AvaLovelace, grade 11, 1 try left, no previous IOI)

Some of my sidenotes about the team below:

This year the Canadian IOI Qualifier (Canadian Computing Olympiad, aka CCO) had quite an upset. A person who won gold at IOI last year failed to qualify this year, while I got 1st place no medal at IOI last year and came out ahead of him.

In addition, 3/4 of the Canadian team doesn't really use codeforces, but they are all active on the main Canadian Competitive Programming site "Don Mills Online Judge (DMOJ)", which I'm sure many of you are familiar with.

Lastly, if you guys are curious about the scores at CCO, I have posted the unofficial results of the CCO on my website over at kobortor.com. (Excuse the shoddy website "design", this was put together in a hurry)

      On the bright side, this means that Canada will get 4 gold this year, since they're all better than me ;). Everyone has their bad days. (and bad nights, 2h sleep before the contest).

      Outline of tasks:

      d1p1: trivial dp task

      d1p2: Basically "hacking" on cf. Output only, write a case so that the given code fails.

      Draw a graph by hand and copy it into your program.

      d1p3: There are n+1 rooms in a row. You can travel between room i and i+1 if there are ai people in room i or bi people in room i+1, not including the person travelling. How many people can you place in all the rooms such that room 0 is unreachable?

      A really nice problem in hindsight. Easy to miss a case on the dp.

      d2p1: binary search task with minor optimization for last subtask

      d2p2: You are given A. At each operation, Ai is changed to a new value x. After each operation, find the maximum sum of two elements in A whose indices are no more than k apart, where k is a constant given at the beginning of input.

      Clean data structures if you took more than 10 minutes to think about it, horrible data structures if you didn't. Hint: online is not enforced.

      d2p3: Given an array A and B, transform A into B using the following operation: Take an interval [l, r] and swap the maximum and minimum elements in the interval.

      very nice solution in theory. It's only nice in theory.

    The Indian IOI selection was also quite an upset. A person who went to IOI last year didn't make it to the team. A person who was expected gold or atleast a silver (not kidding) also didn't make it to the team. I came 5th. Also problems were pretty different from normal problems that come in IOI or even in previous TSTs. Most problems only had 1 subtask.
