MIPS | Malaysian Informatics And Programming Society

The Malaysian Informatics and Programming Society (MIPS) is proud to organize the Malaysia Computing Olympiad (MCO) Training Camp during the upcoming school holidays.

Thank you to all who applied for a slot. After careful consideration, we would like to inform that the following are invited to attend the training camp:


The objective of this camp is to train students in C++ programming in preparation for the MCO 2015. MCO 2015 is an online C++ programming competition that will be the next selection process for the Malaysian national team to International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) 2015. The MCO will be held tentatively in April 2015.The training camp is open only to the individual Gold, Silver and Bronze medallists in MCC 2014. We would like to note that attending this camp is optional. Individual MCC 2014 medallists who decide not to attend this camp will still qualify for MCO 2015 if they fulfill all the requirements.


Please register by 1 December 2014 at the following link:


Since space is limited, we can only accept 30 participants, and therefore not all applicants will be guaranteed a slot. Successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified by email on 8 December. Teachers (whose students are attending) are also welcome to register for the camp.
