If you want to be part of the IPT,
- either your country already participates to the IPT, and you need to get in touch with your national representative
- or your country is not yet competing in the IPT, and you need to get in touch with us through the contact form.
If the country that hosts your university has not yet participated to the IPT, you can form a team on your own and directly contact us.
If more than one team apply in a country without a representative, the Executive Committee takes the responsibility to organise a national selection. The teams must complete a written report outlining the solution to one problem selected from a possible three that will be taken from the official list selected by the IOC. The teams have 4 weeks after the registration deadline to send their written report. Each team is free to enclose his own experimental material and to cite it properly in the report.
The Executive Committee may help the new participating countries to pay their entry fees to the tournament. However, the travel costs to and from the tournament location are the charge of the team.
Constitution of the teams
A team consists in a maximum of six students (only bachelor and master students – no PhD acccepted, sorry!), and two team leaders (PhD, Postdoc, or Professors).
The fees are 1100€ per team. A team consists in a maximum of six students (only bachelor and master students – no PhD acccepted, sorry!), and two team leaders (PhD, Postdoc, or Professors). The fees include housing, meals and some activities during the week of the tournament.
For any additional participant, a supplementary fee will must be paid by the sending university or the participant to cover his/her accommodation and living costs. The travel costs from and to the tournament have to be paid by the teams.
