The Australian Computational and Linguistics Olympiad (OzCLO) is a linguistics and computational linguistics competition for high school students in Australia, and has been held annually since 2008. The competition aims to introduce students in Years 10-12 to language puzzles so they can develop problem-solving strategies and learn about the structures and diversity of the world’s languages. The competition has grown each year, and now involves around 1500 students participating from schools around the country. It challenges them to develop their own strategies for solving problems in fascinating real languages. Participants work in teams of four on a range of language analysis problems.
Students will attend the session at school. The competition will run from 2.30pm-4.30pm, but students are expected to arrive promptly at 1.30pm with all their necessary resources (including laptop and writing materials). Students will be able to depart at 4.45 – this will allow time to pack up the room and take a group photo. Students should bring lunch and snacks with them – they will have time to eat their food during setup time.
