About APLO

Delegates from India, Malaysia, Republic of Korea, and Taiwan held a meeting concerning the creation of a new regional competition called Asia Pacific Linguistics Olympiad (APLO) with the aim of escalating attention to language and linguistics in the Asia Pacific region. The APLO will be held on the first Sunday of May every year, beginning in 2019.

APLO is not a contest where students from different countries physically meet in one place to participate in the competitions. Instead, the problem sets will be distributed to the local organizing committees of the participating countries or regions beforehand, and all contestants will compete in their home country on the same day.
