I'd like to preface this by saying I know that the world doesn't revolve around IOI participants or whatever, this is just a suggestion. There is an upcoming Div. 1 and Div. 2 round (#728) scheduled for the 25th of June 15:35 UTC. I think Div. 1 rounds are pretty rare as it is at the moment, and that most serious IOI competitors practice on Codeforces anyways, so it would be nice if it could be rescheduled to some day that doesn't clash with one of the competition days. That way, it can also serve as a nice practice contest for the IOI :)

E: This topic seems to be supported by many in the Codeforces community (judging from the upvotes), I think it's fair to tag MikeMirzayanov now.

E2: adedalic too!

As an IOI participant, I agree.

There is no problem. You can just miss IOI and write codeforces round.

I agree. I don't want to miss a Div. 1 Round because of IOI :(

According to IOI Shedule, they don't intersect.

    They are only 30 mins apart and you don't give IOI from your home.

    Ah, timezone conversion was never my strong suit, sorry about that. Still, I believe the break between them is far too short. When the World Cup Final is held, it doesn't clash with any Premier League or La Liga games right?

      Unfortunately, the other possible for me variant is a week later, which, in my opinion, is worse. So we set how we set.

        Quite a pity. I expected better from the biggest competitive programming website, especially for a major event such as IOI, which, by the way, will probably have some form of mirror clashing with this contest, meaning Div 1 participation could be reduced even further :/
