Preliminary and Final Written Materials

The teams should type their solutions and send preliminary written materials to oc@itym.org before Monday 19 June 2017, 11pm GMTNote that after sending the preliminary materials, teams may continue working on the problems and make modifications until sending their final materials. 

The preliminary materials will be checked by experts, and the teams will be ranked according to the quality of their materials (team with the best materials will have rank 1). The division into Groups for Round 1 will be made by the following rule. If, for example, there are 15 teams ranked from 1 to 15, then the groups will be

 Group A Group B Group C Group D
 1 2 3 4
 8 7 6 5
 9 10 11 12
  15 14 13

Files with extensions PDF are accepted, a separate file per problem, named as:  Team-ITYM2016-ProblemN-prelim.pdf”. There is a 30 page and 5 MB limit per problem (A4, 11pt). The pages should be numbered.


The teams should type their solutions and send final written materials to oc@itym.org before Monday 3 July 2017, 11pm GMT. It is not required to send solutions on all the problems. However, at least six problems must be investigated.

Files with extensions PDF are accepted, a separate file per problem, named as:  Team-ITYM2017-ProblemN.pdf”. There is a 30 page and 5 MB limit per problem (A4, 11pt). The pages should be numbered.

The first page of each file should contain the number and the name of the problem, the name of the team, the authors and an abstract (a brief summary of results and methods, about  of the page). A model for the first page:

These and only these written materials will be discussed during the tournament and no text editing will be permitted. An exception is in the case of correcting minor errors, which should be mentioned during the presentation. Moreover, during his/her performance the Reporter is only allowed to present:

  • parts of the written materials with no modification, e.g., exact statements with their original numberings, figures and diagrams;
  • sketches of solutions and proofs, and ideas used in the written materials.

All paper and electronic sources (books, articles, etc.) directly involved in proofs should be mentioned in the end of the written materials. For instance, if the team uses an already known and non-obvious result, the result must be stated explicitly and a reference must be provided with citations where it is involved in the solution.
