......The ITYM is a team competition for high school students from all over the world. Its purpose is to stimulate interest in mathematics and its applications, to develop scientific thinking, communication skills and teamwork.

......In contrast to olympiads, the problems for the ITYM are published several months in advance and contain parts with no known solution. During the tournament the participating students present their results in a kind of research debate involving Reporter, Opponent, Reviewer and Observer.

......The ITYM developed out of national tournaments in some countries, especially from Eastern Europe. The need for an international tournament became increasingly clear over the last few years. The ITYM was motivated, in particular, by the growing popularity of the International Young Physicists' Tournament (IYPT).

......The fourth ITYM is being co-organized by  the University Paris-Sud and Animath and will take place from 3rd to 10th July 2012 on the University campus in Orsay (located 30 km from Paris). 

......All countries are invited to send a team composed of six students and accompanied by one or two team leaders. The list of problems for the 4th ITYM will be published here
