More than 30 contestants from nine countries (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, The Republic of Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, and Serbia) will be competing for the most prestigious gold medal awards.
The competition consists of two rounds in two days. In both rounds the working time is five hours and the contestants will be given one to four problems to solve.
