The Baltic Olympiad in Informatics (BOI) is a competition for high school students especially talented in problem solving and programming. The participating countries are Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway (not coming this year), Poland, and Sweden. The BOI can be seen as a regional version of the International Olympiad in Informatics.
Each country may send six students accompanied by two leaders. The competition is divided into two sessions on subsequent days. Each session is five hours long, during which the student has to individually solve three difficult tasks by writing a computer program. After the seession the programs are evaluated for correctness and efficiency by an automatic procedure.
This year's BOI is the 15th in its sequence.
