Hi, everybody!

Many of us are preparing for IOI and as many are just looking for some interesting challenges, thus the question: "How can I access the IOI mirror contest?" arises.

So, if anybody knows the date and the website where it will be held, please share this information in the comments. Thank you.

Afaik it won't happen as IOI is online this year.

    why is IOI being online a factor?

    IIRC last year didn't have a mirror either.

      IOI being online means there's a lot more risk for cheating, so I think it makes sense take more effort to mitigate some of the risk by not having a public scoreboad and not publicly releasing the problems/tests.

        Was mirror in recent years at the same time as actual contest (iirc no)? Would there be anything wrong with doing it afterwards?

Is there any Live Scoreboard for IOI 2020 ?

The IOI website mentions there is no live scoreboard and no live stream, and it seems there will be no mirror from this post. My question is though, at what point will problems be available to be viewed (not submitted) publicly? At the start of the contest or afterwards? I could not find information of this on the website.

    I'm not involved with IOI, but I suspect you may have to wait until after the contest. I think there typically isn't an "official" public release of the problems anyways, and I think they'll probably try to enforce test security a little more than normal due to the contest being online.

Why is there still no "Official" list of participants? Does anyone know?
