It is our great pleasure to welcome all students and team leaders from all over the world who participate in the 17th International Astronomy Olympiad (IAO 2012) in Gwangju located in the south-western part of Korean Peninsula. Gwangju is famous for its rich cultural heritages, delightful cuisine, and dynamic urban life in the backdrop of MuDeung Mountain as well as its warm hospitality.

The IAO provides the opportunity for the students between the ages of 14 and 18 to compete on knowledge and skills in Astronomy as well as to develop friendship with each other. During the time of October 16-24, 2012, we will continue the spirit of IAO in bringing the students together through unique events designed to encourage and challenge exceptionally gifted young talents in experiencing and sharing different cultures.

We look forward to seeing you all soon in Gwangju, Korea!
