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) Training Camp

An optional training camp for the top performers in MCC to prepare them for the next Malaysian Computing Olympiad (MCO). Participants will learn about the fundamentals of competitive programming, such as algorithmic complexity, binary search, graph theory, and dynamic programming.

Malaysian Computing Olympiad (MCO) Qualifiers

Top performers in the MCC are invited to the Malaysian Computing Olympiad (MCO) qualifiers, a series of contests to select the upcoming MCO participants.

Malaysian Computing Olympiad (MCO)

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

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 competing at contest sites within their own country or area.

The Top 4 students in Malaysia will 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’n (IOI in year n) consists of the following stages (all times are estimates):

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