IMC (International Mathematics Competition for University Students) will be
held from July 28 to August 3, 2019, in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria.
This competition is being
and hosted by the American
University in Bulgaria, Blagoevgrad.
It will extend over six days and will take place in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria, from
of July to the 3rd of August, 2019. The IMC is primarily a competition for individuals, although most participating universities select and send one or more teams of students of approximately four student per team, plus one or more Team Leaders. Students coming on their own, or in a group without a Team Leader, are welcome and encouraged to participate. Team Leaders are expected to hold academic positions at the institutions they represent.
The IMC is a residential competition and all student participants are required to stay in the accommodation provided by the organisers. It aims to provide a friendly, comfortable and secure environment for university mathematics students to enjoy mathematics with their peers from all around the world, to broaden their world perspective and to be inspired to set mathematical goals for themselves that might not have been previously imaginable or thought possible. Past participants have gone on to distinguished carriers in mathematics. Most notably, in 2018, Caucher Birkar (born Faraydoun Derakhshani) received mathematics most prestigious award, the Fields Medal. In 2000 he participated in the 7th IMC held at UCL, and, shortly after, while still studying in the University, relocated from the University of Tehran to the UK. In 2001-2004 Birkar was a PhD student at the University of Nottingham and is currently a Professor of Mathematics in Cambridge University. Upon emigrating to the UK, he changed his name to Caucher Birkar, which means “migrant mathematician” in Kurdish.
The competition is planned for students completing their first, second, third or fourth year of university education. The upper age limit is 23 years of age at the time of the IMC. There is no minimum age limit. The competition will consist of 2 Sessions of 5 hours each. Problems will be from the fields of Algebra, Analysis (Real and Complex), Geormetry and Combinatorics. The working language will be English.
Over the past 25 Competitions the IMC has had participants from over 200 institutions from over 50 countries. For further information and on-line registration visit the website at imc.math.org.uk. Further details may be obtained from Professor Jayne at the above e-mail address and/or phone number.
