Annual International Zhautykov Olympiad is one of the most prestigious educational events held in Kazakhstan. Talented contestants from more than fifteen countries tackle sophisticated problems in mathematics, physics, and computer science while collaborating in teams, thereby inspiring a healthy competitive atmosphere during the Olympic week.
Considering the fact that the world of new technologies is rapidly developing, the three areas of IZHO (mathematics, physics, and computer science) offer the participants a wonderful opportunity to increase their interest in research activities and intensify their desire to make a significant contribution to innovative technological progress.
Over the years the program of the Zhautykov Olympiad has become increasingly active, with the number of participants growing from every corner of the globe. For this reason, we are very honored to support the organizing committee of the Olympiad and wish all the competitors and their coaches success and an unforgettable stay in our home of Kazakhstan!
The International Zhautykov Olympiad, named after the outstanding Kazakh mathematician and academician Zhautykov Orymbek Akhmetbekovich, is one of the most prestigious educational events held in Kazakhstan, and I am glad that for 20 years it has been held on the basis of the National School of Physics and Mathematics.
As a graduate of the NPMS , it is a great honor for me to contribute to the holding and development of the Olympiad, which gathers talented and strong participants from different parts of the world.
Today, in the era of rapid technological development, participation in such competitions is becoming especially important. The three main areas of the Olympiad - mathematics, physics and computer science - provide participants with an excellent opportunity to expand their knowledge in these areas and be inspired by research activities. In addition, the Olympiad promotes the development of analytical and logical thinking and other important skills necessary for a successful career in science and innovation.
I wish the participants and organizers of the XX International Zhautykov Olympiad creative success, bright victories and interesting meetings!
The National School of Physics and Mathematics and the Republican Scientific and Practical Center “Daryn”, with the support of the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Kazakhstan, are holding the XX International Zhautyk Olympiad (IZhO) in Mathematics, Physics and computer science, which aims to develop international relations, promote the importance of scientific knowledge and improve cooperation between specialized physics and mathematics schools around the world.
The Olympiad will be held offline from January 8 to January 13, 2024 and is open to all participants. However, participation in the individual online computer science tour is only available to international participants.
The Olympiad involves a team competition. Each team should consist of 7 participants: 3 participants in mathematics, 2 participants in physics and 2 participants in computer science and team leaders (teachers of mathematics, physics and computer science). The team leader must be able to speak any of the three official languages of the Olympiad: Kazakh, Russian or English. Each participant is allowed to complete tasks in their native language. Teams of less than seven people are allowed to participate. More than one team from one country is allowed to participate, but the Organizing Committee of the Olympiad reserves the right to limit the number of school teams representing one country or city.
The results of the Olympiad are determined by individual scores in each subject. The team ranking is determined by the sum of the individual results of the participants. The best schools are awarded with diplomas and valuable gifts.
