IOI 2020 postponed

Dear friends of IOI,

As we are all aware, the international situation with COVID-19 is unpredictable and is changing rapidly.  However challenging, all countries are united to fight the battle against this invisible foe. In this difficult time, our thoughts are with you all, and especially with those that have lost their dear ones in this pandemic around the world.

In the best interest of the health and well being of all IOI participants, The IC and the Singapore hosts have met online on March 23 to evaluate the current situation.  As a result, we have the following information to share with the community:

  1. IOI 2020 will NOT run in July as planned.
  2. We are still aiming to have IOI2020 on-site in Singapore if at all possible. As a backup plan, we are looking seriously for an online IOI.
  3. In whatever form it runs, IOI 2020 will not take place any earlier than September 2020.

We hope this new information will give you flexibility in making plans for selecting teams. The IC and hosts will continue to meet monthly, and we will keep you all updated as things develop further.  If you have any questions, please contact the IOI Secretariat.

Stay safe and Best wishes,
Greg Lee
IOI President
