Informatics: Open Events
There are two major open competitions (i.e. open to any student entering through their schools
and participating under school supervision)
- Australian Informatics Competition (AIC), an entry level event held in May,
requiring no programming or technology, but forming a useful identifier of programming skill. This is
highly recommended for students who wish to be considered for selection for higher invitational
activities which would lead to selection in Australian teams.
- Australian Informatics Olympiad (AIO), held in September each
year and before 2005 known as the AIC. This is a national computer programming competition
which is required for students who wish to be considered for the higher invitational activities.
