Time for Science

Welcome to the official website of the International Tournament of Young Mathematicians (ITYM)!

The ITYM is a team competition for high school students from all over the world. Its purpose is to stimulate interest in mathematics and its applications, to develop scientific thinking, communication skills and teamwork.

In contrast to olympiads, the problems for the ITYM are published several months in advance and contain parts with no known solution. During the tournament the participating students present their results in a kind of research debate involving Reporter, Opponent, Reviewer and Observer.

The ITYM developed out of national tournaments in some countries, especially from Eastern Europe. The need for an international tournament became increasingly clear over the last few years. The ITYM was motivated, in particular, by the growing popularity of the International Young Physicists' Tournament (IYPT).

The eighth I
TYM is being co-organised by the Laboratory for Continuous Mathematical Education and Animath and will take place in Saint Petersburg, the cultural capital of Russia, from 4th to 11th of July 2016. The problems of the ITYM 2016 have been published here.
