9th Congress of the World Federation of National Mathematics Competitions

July 19 – 25, 2022, Sofia, Bulgaria

The 9th Congress of the World Federation of National Mathematics Competitions will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, in July 2022.

It will be co-organized and hosted by the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics.

The program of the Congress will include talks, workshops, mini-courses, problem posing sessions, plenary talks, and other events. Much of the Congress’ work will center on the following four themes:

  • Building Bridges between Problems of Mathematical Research and Competitions (chaired by Alexander Soifer);
  • Creating Problems and Problem Solving (chaired by Krzysztof Ciesielski);
  • Competitions around the World (chaired by Maria Losada);
  • Technological Applications in Mathematics Competitions (chaired by Lukas Donner).

Participants are invited to submit proposals for talks, workshops, mini-courses, posters and other mathematical content. These should include titles, the names of authors or organizers, and clear concise descriptions.

The deadline for proposals of talks is March 31, 2022.

Please, submit your proposals by email to both the Chair of the WFNMC Program Committee Robert Geretschläger (robert@rgeretschlaeger.com) and WFNMC President Kiril Bankov (kbankov@fmi.uni-sofia.bg) by March 31, 2022.

Participants are also invited to submit original contest problems and mathematical puzzles along with solutions and a brief analysis of why this particular problem seems to the author to be interesting/ useful/ stimulating, by April 1, 2022. The Program Committee intends to organize a problem creating session and to include a problem chapter in the proceedings book of Congress’ talks.
