CMIMC

Sorry about the cancellation of the Proofathon contest. It was necessary for me to move on to managing bigger, more impactful contests. That's why today I bring you the Carnegie-Mellon Informatics and Mathematics Competition (CMIMC)!

We have gathered many Carnegie Mellon students in the math and computer science departments to help create the most exciting contest of 2016. The CMIMC will revolutionize math competitions with the following features:

  • the very first computer science round, solving computer science problems using only pencil and paper, no programming knowledge required
  • algebra, combinatorics, geometry, and number theory individual rounds
  • power round
  • team round
  • live lectures by Carnegie Mellon professors

For more information, visit the cmimc website. Everyone who is interested in this contest (even if you're not certain you can come) should preregister here.

If you want to see this competition run, we need your support! Preregister now!

The computer science round, for sake of clarity, will focus on the theoretical aspects of computer science, not hard-core programming.

As in, there will be 0 programming or knowledge of any programming language on the test.

That's actually very cheap compared to other competitions like PUMaC and HMMT, especially when we are just in our first year of operation. In fact, for expenses, I would be much more concerned about flights and hotels :P
