V International Astronomy Olympiad
SAO RAS, Nizhnij Arkhyz, October, 20-27, 2000.

[Image of BTA, winter] The V-th International Astronomy Olympiad took place on October 20-27, 2000 at the Special Astrophysical Observatory of Russian Academy of Sciences (SAO RAS) in North Caucasus. (The dates were absolutely the same as two years ago when the III IAO took place.) There were two official languages at the Olympiad - English and Russian. Problems were prepared by the Organizing Committee in these two languages but the team leaders were responsible to translate problems to native languges of participants (i.e. to Armenian, Bulgarian, Portuguese and Swedish). Character of the problems to solve were analogous to ones of the previous International Astronomy Olympiads (1996-1999). Text of the problems will be soon on the Web Page.
