Max flow is excluded from the IOI syllabus:


We believe that maximum flow algorithms are useful techniques to know at this level of competition. Just because the syllabus excludes the topic does not mean that a task (or part thereof) will not be solvable using a maximum flow algorithm - just that the intended solution will not use such an algorithm.
