Selection of the Problems

The 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 was an individual event, the Universities traditionally divided their participants into groups of four each. The number of students in the teams was, however, not fixed. The professor who accompanied the students was a member of the Jury.
