To participate in the event, chose an option


  • Team of 5 Students
  • Bring 3 Jurors (15 Fights in total)
  • 5 Problems prepared

  • Deadline on July 17 (AoE)


  • Belong to a Team
  • Have a Join Password

  • Presentation Video by July 24 (AoE)


  • Judged in a previous IYPT
  • Fulfill IYPT Juror requirements


  • Please have a modern browser (Firefox or Chome) and a stable internet connection, i.e. no LTE access.

    We will use the video conferencing software BigBlueButton. If you have the opportunity, please familiarize yourself with it.

    You will need a decent web-cam, minimum 720p resolusion and a good quality microphone.

  • No, as this might lead to unfair advantages in either direction. You are however welcome to send different students from your national selection.

  • To allow each team member to present their work, we limit the set of problems each team may be challenged. Therefore each participant registers their prepared problem and the opponent will get a list of all problems remaining for the challenge. The problems of the last selective round are then implicitly fixed.

  • Running a video conference with participants around the globe might come with technical difficulties. As the report is the central part of a fight, we require each participant to upload a recorded presentation at latest on July 24 (AoE) to a web space. The link to the upload space is visible to team manager on the team management page.

  • To compress the schedule into a weekend and reduce the load on all participants, the selective rounds (PF1 - PF5) will take place without a reviewing team.

    This means that in each room, there will be only 2 teams competing. A reporting and an opposing team. In the second stage, both teams change their roles. In the case of an odd number of teams, there will be one room with three teams, where the third team acts as observer.

    The timing in each stage is as follows
