The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is an annual Mathematical Olympiad for pre-collegiate students and is the oldest of the international science Olympiads. ThefirstIMO was held in Romania in 1959. It has since been held annually, except in 1980. About90 countries send teams of up to six students, plus one team leader, one deputy leader, and observers.

The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is the World Championship Mathematics Competition for High School students and is held annually in a different country.

Each national delegation is made up of six student competitors plus two leaders, selected on a national level. Observers may also accompany a national team. The students compete as individuals, and must sit for intensive theoretical and laboratory examinations. For their efforts the students can be awarded gold, silver, or bronze medals or an honorable mention.
