I can't find offical websites for BOI and JBOI. I'm wondering where will be BOI and JBOI in 2019? Anybody knows?

There wasn't a national olympiad in Bosnia yet, and there's no date for when it will happen so don't expect BOI any time soon.

      BOI will happen, but if they're waiting for Bosnia to finish its nationals, they're going to have to wait. Last year the nationals were June 30th. Many problems with funding these types of competitions occured in Bosnia this year, so it is unknown when it will happen. If I'm not missing the topic, Bosnia is a part of BOI and BOI participants are chosen from Bosnia nationals olympiad.

There is nothing common between Bosnia national and BOI :)

BOI will be probably in September. Currently first option (by schedule from 2-3 years ago) is Greece. In case they do not find money they will lose status of participant and some other Balkan country will take organization. Serbia is one of options (I do not expect it, just I say there is a chance).

    Again, I always thought that the main purpose behind the regional olympiads is a preparation for the IOI. What is the reason of organizing them after the IOI?

    BOI participants are chosen from Bosnia nationals olympiad, and I'm just trying to say that the BOI won't be here yet because not all countries have chosen their participants.

    Last year BOI was in July, so its only reasonable to expect it around the same time.
