About the Ibero-American Inter-University Mathematics Competition
The Ibero-American Inter-University Mathematics Competition seeks to encourage the study of mathematics and academic excellence in the Ibero-American university community. It is focused on improving scientific skills among students through motivation and international competitiveness, thus contributing to the academic, social, cultural and economic development of the participating countries.
It is an annual competition aimed at undergraduate students at Ibero-American universities, who compete by solving high-level mathematical problems. In 2023, the competition took place between September 6 and 12 in the city of Rio de Janeiro.
The competition is open to all students taking undergraduate programs that deal with basic concepts of number theory, geometry, combinatorial analysis, differential and integral calculus, and algebra, grouped on a single level.
