Since 2018, the Innopolis Lyceum has opened a special Museum of Olympiad in Informatics, exhibits from the All-Russian Olympiad and IOI for which were donated by the head of the Olympiad for 30 years of its holding from 1988 to 2018, Vladimir Mikhailovich Kiryukhin. The museum's materials reflect the history of the Olympiad from the first computers (Yamaha, Electronics) and the Basic programming language to complex platform of cloud solutions, such as the online platform of the Yandex Contest, and the C++ language, which is now adopted as the main for different international Olympiads in Informatics.

We are open to sharing experience with other countries in the field of teaching methods for talented students and invite other InfoParks ISIJ in Russia (Mordovia, Sarov, Chuvashia and etc) and around the world (Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, China, Mongolia, Belarus and etc) to join forces to reach all motivated children with Olympiad in informatics in ISIJ for their progress to success.

Welcome from head of the Main Department of Education of the city of Dushanbe
In 2022, the Cup of the International School of Informatics for juniors has been held for the fifth time. After the pandemic, juniors from different countries are starting to meet again in creative competitions. Computer science is becoming the leading subject for children in the IT era, and all countries of the world are experiencing a very high need for professional programmers.
Support for juniors who are passionate about Olympiad Informatics, involving teachers in coaching in IT areas is an important task that we solve together at ISIJ.
The Republic of Tajikistan invited young programmers to Dushanbe to test themselves in various competitions, to see the creative potential of schoolchildren from different countries. We hope that all teams from different countries that join will get useful experience, and an IT club will appear in each school to attract children to the programming profession!
We are sure that cooperation with ISIJ will help our schools to be in the trend of international experience in computer science!
We look forward to seeing all participants in sunny Dushanbe!

Welcome from the President of international School in Informatics for juniors
Dear colleagues, participants, teachers and coaches!
The international school of Informatics for juniors is held online this year.
For Informatics, this is not a new collaboration solution, but of course the camp-school environment helps us all work as a team. I hope that the online form will not destroy our team spirit.
To do this, I suggest that coaches and teachers will do actively cooperate in the Coaching Council of the School! And I wish students to cultivate the Olympic spirit based on the code of honor by distance working, from home, independently and responsibly participating in tours and the School Cup.

Welcome from the Director of international School in Informatics for juniors
Dear friends!
The pandemic on the one hand created difficulties for us, and on the other hand the new digital world will allow many children and their coaches to join the online form of our School, since this form removes such barriers as distance and money. The online session requires coaches to give more attention to the support and coordination of online work with junior teams, supervise their participation in distance Olympiad training on a daily, and to become a digital curator for juniors!
From 2020, we will hold an annual online session of the ISIJ, which will enable children from anywhere in the world to be included in training. Online ISIJ is now open during all year and includes a short summer session with an online School Cup, and a long winter session for all participants of the summer online ISIJ. To do this, we have made a special schedule that is convenient for all participants, in two time zones the Western and Eastern. This helps not only juniors from Europe, Asia and Russia, but also children from New Zealand to participate in school comfortably.
I wish all juniors, coaches, mentors to get new experience and see new horizons of their Olympiad career in Informatics.
