WHAT IS NEXT FOR THE MyCLO WINNERS?
10% top scorers from MyCLO will be attended a national camp to prepare for the IOL of the following year. At this camp, some of the top linguists and computational linguists will work on introducing linguistics, in its full glory, covering areas like phonology, semantics, historical linguistics and computational linguistics while also training the students for the olympiad, where you can solve some cool olympiad problems based on what you learn in the lectures.
All the participants in the first camp will be invited to attend the second national camp in order to prepare for Asia Pacific Linguistics Olympiad (APLO) on the following year. APLO is a regional linguistics olympiad with the aim of escalating attention to linguistics in the Asia Pacific region. The participants will be selected to participate in IOL based on their performance in the mid test of this camp and APLO.
4 to 8 selected students will represent our respective country in IOL which is usually held in July-August. Each year, teams of young linguists from around the world, armed with logical and problem solving abilities, outside-the-box thinking, patience, and creativity, are gather and test their minds against the world’s toughest puzzles in language and linguistics.
