Registration for IPT 2022 closed.

First-time Registration

If the country that hosts your university has not yet participated in the IPT, you can form a team on your own and directly contact us.

If more than one team applies 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 chosen three problems 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 at the teams own expense.

Constitution of the teams

A team consists of a maximum of six students (only bachelor and master students – no PhD accepted, sorry!), and two team leaders (PhD, Postdoc, or Professors).



As the tournament will be held offline in Bucaramanga, Colombia the fees are 1000 euros per team.


For the IPT2022 the LOC has defined a 17-teams limit. In case the number of registered team is higher, the preselection rules are applied. Find more information about the preselection for the tournament in the dedicated page.
