Dear Friends,

It is a great pleasure to invite you to our annual 15th International Zhautykov Olympiad. Every year top specialised schools from all over the world gather at National School of Physics & Math (Fizmat) to determine the best schools in Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science. IZhO is a grand project, which has been successfully implemented by our school since 2005. International Zhautykov Olympiad has been recognized along with other international olympiads and received acknowledgement of professionals.

This year IZhO will take place at Fizmat Almaty from January 9 to January 15, 2019 and we are more than happy to welcome your school teams to our event. Each team should consist of no more than 7 participants: 3 participants in Mathematics, 2 participants in Physics and 2 participants in Computer Science and 1 or 2 team leaders (a teacher of Math, Physics or Computer Science). A team leader should be able to speak any one of the three official languages of the Olympiad: Kazakh, Russian or English. Each contestant is allowed to complete tasks in his/her native language. A fewer number of participants in each team as well as participation of several school teams from one particular country is acceptable. You may even present the team(s) with a fewer number of contestants or participate in one subject area only. The Organizing Committee of the Olympiad has a right to limit the number of school teams representing one country or city. The participation fee for each participant and group leader is $100. The Organizing Committee covers the team expenditure on food and accommodation during the Olympiad period in Almaty. Travel expenditure is due to a guest country.

We would ask you to send your application forms to the Organizing Committee not later than December 10, 2018 (in case you need a visa) and not later than December 17, 2018 (in case you do not need a visa).
