Central European Olympiad in Informatics 2017 will this year take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia from July 10 to July 15. I would like to invite you to an online contest featuring the CEOI task which we'll organize after the conclusion of the on-site contest.

The online contest will last 5 hours and feature 9 problems from the practice session and both competition days. It starts on Saturday, 15 July at 14.00 CEST (UTC +2). Registration will be enabled after the conclusion of the on-site contest on Friday.

The contest will be suitable for a wide range of contestants with the typical divison of problems into subtasks. With a relatively narrow time frame of 5 hours it should present a challenge even to the best. We're looking forward to your participation.

UPDATE 1: The onsite contest has concluded. You can check the results.

UPDATE 2: Registration on the online judge is now open. Good luck tomorrow.

UPDATE 3: Congratulations to demon1999 for winning the online contest and thanks to everyone who participated. We will upload the tasks, tests and solutions to the web page shortly.

The Gym contains a nice set of NEERC contests, which are a valuable learning resource. After spending 5 hours on a problem set you learn where are your problem solving limits. But to move beyond those limits, you need some help in form of solution outlines.

European regionals usually post solution presentations on official websites, but I can't find them for the NEERC regional and subregional contests. I don't speak Russian, which makes looking for them even harder. This site has a large archive of final standings but only a few solution presentations. Does anyone know where to find the rest? Google translate works well enough so it's not a problem if they are in Russian. How about attaching the solutions to the gym so you don't have to go looking for them elsewhere? If they are not already available, whoever sets up a gym contest could add their own.
