Selection of the Problems

The problems will be chosen at the Meeting of the Jury from those received in advance by the President of the Jury, Professor John Jayne.


The students' work is evaluated by Team Leaders and other Professors and Assistant Professors using criteria provided by the Jury.


Although this is an individual event, the Universities traditionally divide their participants into groups of four each. The number of students in the teams is, however, not fixed. The professor who accompanies the students is expected to be a member of the Jury.
