Siberian Mathematical
International Open Student Contest on Mathematics
Due to the epidemiological situation, in 2020 the Siberian Mathematical Contest will not be held. We wish you good health in this turbulent time and look forward to seeing you in 2021.
About the contest
Siberian Mathematical Contest is a competition for bachelor students of both mathematics and non-mathematics degrees.

Contest is held in three separate categories:
  • First-year students
  • Second-or-more year students of mathematics degrees
  • Second-or-more year students of other academic degrees
Students must register in advance to be able to participate.
Date and venue
This contest is annual. The 2020 contest is cancelled. Exact dates for the 2021 contest are yet to be announced.

The internal round is held on the Novosibirsk State University campus. The full list of external round venues is not yet determined, but in 2019 it contained other universities in Novosibirsk, as well as in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Tomsk, Tyumen, Omsk, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
For each category the contest has two rankings: personal and team. Each participant's result is ranked in the personal standings. Team score is combined of 5 best personal results among its members. Each team can consist of up to six students. And each university can register no more than two teams in each category.
However, a student can always participate standalone. Forming a team is not required to compete in the personal standings.
Siberian Mathematical Contest tasks require vast knowledge of algebra, mathematical analysis, geometry and combinatorics. Students have to write both detailed calculated solutions and theoretical proof.

Previous years' tasks with examples of their solutions can be found below.
Participants will be able to register for the contest approximately in October 2020. Exact dates are to be announced.
