No. In this year, for participants from regions other than mainland China and Macau SAR, their registration fee will be waived off.

2. Should I register for the contest? How to register?

Yes. Please register through this website before the deadline as specified at this website (usually about one week before the contest starts).

A team should consist of up to three undergraduate students guided by at most one advisor (optional).

For register, you should "sign up" an account in this website at first, then provide registration information for your team through "Membership". Please note that each team should "sign up" only one account and should input all the information of the team with this account through "Membership". Please also note that your own information should also be included in the members (students) list of your team.

3. Should the team members be from the same institution?

Yes, all the three students and the advisor (optional) for a team should be from the same institution (college or university). But they can be from different depatments and/or majors.

4. What is the difference between the categories (contest types) of "University" and "College"?

The students from three or four-year universities should register as a univeristy team, and the students from two or three-year colleges should register as a college team.

A univeristy team should choose one problem A (or B) from the contest problems. A college team should choose one problem C (or D) from the contest problems.

5. How to download the contest problems and submit the solution packets?

Please download the problems from this website after the contest starts, then work on one of the two problems in your registrated category (contest type), and finally upload your solution packet before the contest ends. Please upload your solution packet as a single file (you can use WinZIP or WinRAR to compress multiple files into a single one). Each team can submit a solution packet for only one contest problem.

If you have problems when you download the contest problems (the webserver is usually heavy loaded at the time the contest starts), please send an email to Prof. Jinxing Xie (email: jxie@math.tsinghua.edu.cn). We will then send a copy of the contest problems to your via email.

If you have problems when you upload your solution packet via the website, you can also send your solution packet via email to Prof. Jinxing Xie (email: jxie@math.tsinghua.edu.cn).

(1) A cover page file with participants' full names and addresses;
