The Australia’s 2019 informatics team has continued its tradition of stellar international performances at the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) in Azerbaijan.

Held over two days, teams are given three tasks to complete each day, and must design algorithms to produce the correct output from a given data input. Points are awarded for producing the correct output, the efficiency and speed of the algorithm and creativity.

The competition was held in Baku, Azerbaijan, and official results have now been released. The Australians competed against teams from 86 other countries, scoring one gold, one silver and two bronze medals in the competition.

It’s the first time since 2016 that all four Australians have received medals. Congratulations to gold medallist Angus Ritossa (Year 12), St Peter’s College, who placed ninth out of 327 competitors and was the highest placed Australian. An outstanding achievement.
