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.
