Practical information

The sixth edition of the Benelux Mathematical Olympiad (BxMO) will be organised from 2 to 4 May in Bruges. The Benelux Mathematical Olympiad (BxMO) is a mathematical competition on which high school students from Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg participate. Each country may delegate ten students who are selected according to their results in the national mathematical olympiads.

The competition consists of four problems each of sub-IMO level or Q1/Q4 IMO level. Each student has to work individually on these problems within a time span of four hours and a half. At the closing ceremony, half of the contestants are awarded a bronze, silver or gold medal according to the ratio 3:2:1.

The BxMO will take place in the Sint-lodewijkscollege, near by the train station and the city centre of Bruges. The participants and the team leaders of the three countries will stay at the youth hotel of Bruges, just outside the historical centre of Bruges.
