MIPS | Malaysian Informatics And Programming Society

We aim to support computing education for secondary and pre-university students in Malaysia by organizing:

Malaysian Computing Challenge (MCC)

The MCC (Malaysian Computing Challenge) is an annual online computing competition. Participants will be required to have some basic programming knowledge in order to solve the problems.

Malaysian Computing Olympiad (MCO)

The Malaysian Computing Olympiad (MCO) is an algorithmic computer programming competition. Participation to the MCO is by invitation-only to the top performers in the MCC.

Asia-Pacific Informatics Olympiad (APIO)

The Asia-Pacific Informatics Olympiad (APIO) is an IOI-like competition for delegations within the South Asian / Western Pacific region. The contest is held online, with students competiting at contest sites within their own country or area.

Training Camp

Training camps for the top programming students in Malaysia. Shortlisted students will take part in the Asia-Pacific Informatics Olympiad (APIO), a difficult algorithmic computer programming competition.

Opportunity for the top 4 students in Malaysia to represent their country at the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI), the most prestigious international algorithmic computer programming competition at the secondary and pre-university level.

Road to IOI

The selection process for the IOI involves several stages, starting from the Malaysian Computing Challenge, which is open to all Malaysian students. The best performers are then invited to undergo a series of selection tests and camps, through which the final four students are selected to represent Malaysia at the annual International Olympiad in Informatics.

Malaysia has sent delegation teams since 2012. View the Malaysian team results here.
