Welcome to the olympiad!

It is a great pleasure and honor for us to be a home for the 18th Asian Physics Olympiad in 2017. The city of Yakutsk at the heart of Siberia chivalrously invites the participants, leaders and visitors. The hosting of the event is possible due to the efforts of Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation. We are extremely proud to host this event during the centennial of Mikhail Alekseev, who is a celebrated physics teacher and the founder of the Physics Olympiad in Yakutia.
