List of registered IOI2015 participants is published in the IOI statistics page.
Just as reminder: For several countries some information about some of the previous IOIs is missed. You can check color code of your country in the country list. Green denotes that information is complete, yellow - that only information about contestants is complete but incomplete about leaders and red - that even information about contestants seems to be incomplete.
You can add missing (or update existing) information by yourselves - the interface for adding or editing information is simple enough - just try it out! However, if you have missed information in any other appropriate form (text file, MS Word document, MS Excel spreadsheet, etc.), just send it to us (the best addressee would be Eduards Kalinicenko aka eduardische, eduardische_at_gmail.com) and give some days for processing.
If you can fill any of the blanks in the whole IOI history picture, please, do it! At the moment it is known that information about IOI's from 1990, 1993, 1997, 1998 and 2002 is incomplete. We would be glad if the responsible people for their countries will at least provide full information for their own country. It's only 27 years, so it's possible, but the further away we go, the harder it'll be to collect, so let's do it once and for all. In case if you have any questions or problems, do not hesitate to ask Eduards or Mārtiņš Opmanis (askola_at_latnet.lv, you can also meet me in present at IOI 2015.).
