This year IZhO will take place at Fizmat Almaty from January 8 to January 14, 2020 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 USD. 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 apply not later than November 23, 2019 (in case you need a visa) and not later than December 7, 2019 (in case you do not need a visa).

We do believe that the participation of your students in the 16th IZhO will lead to building strong bonds between the schools of our countries
