What is the European Girls’ Olympiad in Informatics?
The European Girls’ Olympiad in Informatics (EGOI) is a new international competition for young women interested in Computer Science, lasting for one week. The Olympiad comprises of two contest days where the participants solve challenging algorithmic problems. The program is rounded off with excursions. The students will have time to socialise with other girls interested in Computer Science and to explore the host country. Each participating country may send a delegation consisting of four female participants under the age of 20, accompanied by two coaches.
The program of EGOI is similar to the one of well-established competitions such as the IOI (International Olympiad in Informatics) or the CEOI (Central European Olympiad in Informatics). Compared to these, EGOI will include all of Europe and the participation is restricted to women.
As a national olympiad in informatics
Currently, there is no fixed process to become a member of EGOI. You will probably receive an invitation from this year’s host with more details on how to register. If you do not receive an invitation, feel free to reach out to the host.
