We outline Israel's IOI (International Olympiad in Informatics ) project. Israel joined the IOI in 1997 and has participated in the IOI ever since, apart from 2008. We describe the selection and training process in Israel, and provide some statistics. The selection and training process is composed of four stages: a self-study preparation; a national competition, an advanced training and team-selection stage; and the national team's preparation to the IOI. The presented statistics involve Israel's medals throughout the years, and some statistics about the top 30 students, who reached the advanced training and team-selection stage.
