university education and will consist of 2 Sessions of 5 hours each.

Selection of the Problems
problems were chosen at the Meeting of the Jury from those received
in advance by the President of the Jury, Professor John Jayne.
The students' work was
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.
