IMC Math Modeling Contest (IMMC)

1. A test to read the given research paper, make a problem that is happening around us in relation to the paper, solve the problem with mathematics, and write a solution.

2. It is a total of 8 hours; the solution is written as a word file and submitted.

3. The length should be between 1,000 and 3,000 words.

4. You can use books, Internet, calculator, and coding but if you use ChatGPT to copy it, the test will be canceled and several universities in collaboration with us will be notified. Using ChatGPT is judged as cheating.
