Asia Pacific Linguistics Olympiad (APLO) is a regional linguistics olympiad with the aim of escalating attention to language and linguistics in the Asia Pacific region. It is similar to the International Linguistics Olympiad in spirit, and the nature and style of the problems. The APLO began in 2019 and is held between March and April every year. The upcoming APLO will be held on March 29, 2020.
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.
