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 22nd of July to the 28th of July, 2018. Every participating university sent several students and one or more Team Leaders. Individual students without a Team Leader were welcome. Each Team Leader holds an academic position in a Faculty of the Institution that they represent.

The competition is planned for students completing their first, second, third or fourth year of university education with a maximum age of participants being 23 years of age at the time of the competition. There is no mimimum age limit. 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 four competitions we have had participants from over two hundred institutions from over fifty countries.
