Brief information about results

The VIIIth International Astronomy Olympiad was organized on October 2/3 - 8, 2003 in Stockholm, Sweden at the Stockholm Observatory and Saltsjöbadens Samskola.

[Stockholm Observatory] The main organizer of the Olympiad was the Swedish section of the European Association for Astronomy Education; Saltsjöbadens Samskola, Stockholm Observatory and the Swedish National Space Board with a coordination of the Olympic Coordination Council of the EAAS.

Due to lack of enough financial support the dates of the Olympiad have been moved from initially proposed September 22-29 to shorter period in October.

Samskola] Autorized National Representative Astronomy Organizations (ANRAO) of the participating countries were authorized to form the teams of the Olympiad member-states.

There were 55 participants from 14 teams at the Olympiad:

    Moscow Land,
    and also observers from Ireland and Italy.

All foreign teams participating in the Olympiad were be met by local organizers at the Stockholm's airport Arlanda (if arriving by air) or at the ferry terminals of Silja/Viking Line (if arriving by ferry - team of Russian Federation).
