We need more people in the Editorial Board and Reviewers, please suggest yourself or ask your colleagues if they are interested in the journal. We really need more academic persons to work with the IOI journal papers.

Also, I would like to inform you that it is time to write papers to the next year volume of "Olympiads in Informatics". It's quality depends on all of us. Please think, investigate and submit papers.
Also, if you know somebody from your colleagues (especially earlier years participants) who can submit an interesting paper let me know. I remind that we can publish few good papers without participation in IOI. So we are flexible.
