The logo of the IOI 2016 reflects the city where it is taking place - in this case the outline of the Spasskaya Tower in the Kazan Kremlin. The stylised depiction of the tower's centre incorporates the binary code "101", while its base is comprised of a microchip, symbolising the two sides of IT: software and hardware.
The IOI 2016 logo comprises three elements: 1. The Spasskaya Toweer in the Kazan Kremlin, 2. The initials "IOI", and 3. A band in the colours of the flag of the Russian Federation.
