We are planning to hold the 29th IMC as a Hybrid Event from 1 to 7 August 2022, both In-Person in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria, and On_Line.



AUBG Tour, Blagoevgrad
This year's competition is organized by University College London and will be hosted by the American University in Bulgaria. It will take place in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria, 1 - 7 August 2022, if conditions allow. Otherwise it will again be ON-LINE as last year.

Traditionally every participating university sends several students and one or more Team Leaders. Individual students and teams of students, with or without a Team Leader, that do not represent any university are also welcome. Each Team Leader is expected to hold an academic position in some university level institution and participate in the marking of the work of all participants.

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, although some exceptions can be made. There is no minimum 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 seven 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.

Rules and Regulations
IMC Ethics Committee

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. This year students from Russia can only participate as individuals, unaffiliated and unattached to any university; and they will not be included in any teams.
