20-24 July 2020, Ventspils, Latvia
Announcement from the Board of IOL

We would like to inform you that the local organizers of this summer's IOL in Latvia and the International Board of the IOL are currently discussing the current world-wide health situation, and considering plans for various contingencies. Of course we all hope that the event will be able to go ahead, but all options are currently being considered. Meanwhile, we understand that in many countries, plans for final selection rounds for students may be disrupted. The local organizers understand that information about names of individual competitors may therefore be delayed, and the Board accepts that some countries may have to select their team members on criteria other than those usually adopted. We appreciate everyone's continued understanding and cooperation, and are hoping for a happy and satisfactory outcome, whatever happens.

Registration schedule can be found on the Schedule page.
