This year's competition was organized by University College London and hosted by the American University in Bulgaria. It took place in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria, from the 25th of July to the 31st of July, 2016. Every participating university sends several students and one teacher. Individual students are welcome.

The competition is planned for students completing their first, second, third or fourth year of university education and will consist of 2 Sessions of 5 hours each. Problems are from the fields of Algebra, Analysis (Real and Complex), Geometry and Combinatorics. The working language is English.

This is a residential competition and a condition of participation is that all participating students stay in the Hall of Residence provided by the organisers. Over the past twenty two competitions we have had participants from over two hundred institutions from over fifty countries.

Selection of the Problems

The problems are 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.
