Competition is underway for CEOI 2020, which is being held this week in Nagykanizsa, Hungary.

The John von Neumann Computer Society (NJSZT), together with the Hungarian Government and the local municipality, have organised the event, which runs from 23-29 August, kicking off on Sunday with an entertaining and inspiring opening ceremony. 

An annual event since 1994, CEOI was established to provide new generations of students with opportunities to compare their skills with peers from across Europe.  Inspired by the ever-increasing popularity of the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) for secondary school students, eight Central European countries (Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovak Republic and Slovenia) have been taking turns to host the CEOI every year since 1994 to provide the new generation of competitors with an opportunity to compare their skills. 

Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19, Hungary is staging the event live at the Batthyány Lajos Gimnázium – Nagykanizsa. The organising committee, delegated by NJSZT, has worked hard to ensure the event is not only safe for participants, but is also entertaining and an unforgettable experience, not only with the professional content but with a range of fun leisure activities as well. Teams are competing from:  Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
