The International Olympiad in Informatics 2022 is scheduled to start in a month. To help you prepare today, we announce an online judge with IOI problems. Right here, on codeforces.

Available now

On https://ioi.contest.codeforces.com/ you can find a contest for each day of each IOI contest since 2002. Participate virtually in a 5-hour contest or simply upsolve problems there! Virtual participants will appear in separate scoreboards for each year as well as in an upsolving scoreboard. Don’t forget to disable coach mode to appear in the upsolving scoreboard.

Future work

We have at least some problem materials for contests since 1998, but IOI has had competitive programming problems since 1994. Even if these problems are not very useful for training, they have significant historical value. Unfortunately, early-year materials on ioinformatics.org are incredibly bad, so if you have something (e.g., solutions, interactor, checkers, library sources), please contact me right away!

I am also considering adding original contest results as ghost participants to the scoreboards.

Let me know in the comments, what else would you like to see in the IOI archive?

How to help?

I'm sure some problems are misconfigured. The most probable errors are tests in wrong subtasks or changes in grader not mentioned in the problem statements. Let’s find them in upsolving mode, to avoid ruining the training process for contestants. If you have solutions (preferably partial solutions), please, become an early tester. Report issues via github repo. Pull requests to problem statements and validators are also always welcome there!

Please, contribute with contest materials for earlier IOI!

If you are a member of an IOI committee, help the project a lot by enforcing a better archival process for the future contests. In particular, it would be great to have as part of the public archive:

  • Statements in markdown
  • Any kind of non-English statements
  • Test data generators and tests generation command lines
  • Any description of solutions intended behavior or score
  • no new archive format every year :)

Also, you can donate to pavelkunyavskiy.crowdforces.near, to help pay for outsourcing some work, but that’s not necessary.

Special thanks

  • MikeMirzayanov and geranazavr555 for implementing a lot of stuff in Codeforces and Polygon
  • ligaydima , Dimitrys and especially Masha237 for help converting problem statements to polygon format.
  • lperovskaya for maintaining archive on contest.yandex.ru/ioi, which become a great material source, as well as for proofreading this text
  • Petr for solutions and other materials of IOI2002 (and IOI2000, and IOI2001 I hope to publish later).
  • eduardische for showing me the old IOI site with problem materials, and Martins Opmanis for maintaining it.
  • yeputons for original archive resources and idea back in 2011

Hello, Codeforces.

We have exciting news! Look at the logo. See the changes?

Yes, we are happy to announce our new sponsor and partner – the TON Foundation!

We appreciate their support!

The Open Network (TON) is a fully decentralized layer-1 blockchain designed by Telegram to onboard billions of users. The TON Foundation is aimed to further develop and advance the TON Blockchain and its related products for a mass audience.

Andrew Rogozov, founding member at the TON Foundation, says, "We strongly believe in the idea of competitive programming itself, because it is in the TON Blockchain DNA." The TON Blockchain protocol was designed by Nikolai Durov — who is a two-time ICPC world champion, a three-time IMO gold medalist, a multiple IOI medalist, and a co-founder of Telegram — and other winners of international competitions. Now the TON Blockchain core team consists of winners of blockchain contests held by Telegram.

The TON Foundation has already supported the CodeTON Round 1 earlier in March 2022. More than 22K users were registered, and 12K participants made at least one submission. "Codeforces is an unparalleled platform for developing the programming skills of coders all over the world. We are of one mind with the Codeforces team that such contests reveal a treasury full of talents," adds Andrew Rogozov.

I send rays of gratitude to Telegram and personally to Pavel Durov, who has supported our community for many years. With this help we have come a long way — we have run hundreds of rounds, developed the ecosystem, our community has grown hundreds of times. And we are moving forward! Support from the TON Foundation pleases with its succession.

I'm happy to announce that starting July 2022, we have the option to increase problem writer payouts. Hooray!

  • Div. 2: $300;
  • Div.1 + Div. 2: $600;
  • sponsored round: $900.

In addition, we continue to encourage payments in cryptocurrency. In this case, we pay out +25%. I look forward to new rounds on our platform.

— Mike Mirzayanov

I always like to think that Codeforces is not only a place where you come to compete but also a place where you can learn. Learn new things.

Two years ago, we launched the EDU subproject, a platform for publishing classes. There are already several classes, but there are so many interesting topics around!

The Codeforces team can write the platform, make the technical foundation, but it would be great to write content with the support of the community.

Thanks to the support of competitive programming alumni, we have a budget for targeted grants for the preparation of new classes in the EDU section. Hope we have new content soon!

We are looking for lesson authors who could prepare and record one or more lessons. Those who are now red or have ever been red are invited.

We assume that one lesson (class) consists of:

  • 3-5 steps: break the lesson into logical parts,
  • video materials explaining the topic (usually, the total duration is 60-120 minutes),
  • text summary
  • a thematic training set of problems with a wide range of complexity (from the most basic on this topic to quite tricky ones)
  • first of all, we would like to cover the main topics of competitive programming — DP, graphs, basic data structures, etc.

Please note that we expect you to record and edit the video by yourself. Look at already recorded lessons to understand the expected format and structure of lessons. We have a rich history of teaching, so you can count on our advice and assistance in preparing lecture plans and problems. If video editing scares you, then here we can help.

We invite you to help grow the community and make history. I am sure that the recorded classes will be watched by tens of thousands of people (or more?).

The reward for recording one class is $1000.

If you are now red or have ever been red and you are interested in this offer, then fill out the form (open until June 28th).
