International Tournament of Young Mathematicians

The Organizers and Partners

International Organizing Committee

The International Organizing Committee of ITYM is formed of mathematicians from the former host countries of the tournament. The IOC meets regularly to discuss the regulations and write the problems. During the tournament, the IOC and some invited international mathematicians form the International Jury.

Animath and Local Organizing Committee

The 10th ITYM in Paris will be organized by Association Animath.

Animath is a French non-profit organization founded in 1998. Its goal is to promote the practice of mathematics for young people, from elementary school to university.

Animath has a long history of organizing mathematical competitions and summer camps, at national and international level. The association is supported by the main research and teaching organizations involved in mathematics and computer science and is accredited by the Ministry for Education as an “educational association, complementary to the public educational system”.

The ITYM 2018 is organized by a team of volunteers from Association Animath. Most members of the Local Organizing Committee are former participants of the ITYM or its French version, the French Tournament of Young Mathematicians. Their work is purely voluntary.

Our volunteers: We need you!

The tournament is organized by mathematicians and students, on a purely voluntary basis.  We are always looking for new volunteers, so if you want to join the team and give us a hand, please contact us!


Our partners

We warmly thank all our partners and sponsors, who decided to  invest in mathematical excellence and promotion of knowledge. Without them, the competition could not happen!

Private partners

Société Générale

Société Générale is one of the leading financial services groups in Europe. Based on a diversified universal banking model, the Group combines financial solidity and a strategy of sustainable growth. Our objective: to be the leading relationship-focused bank, a reference in its markets, close to its clients and chosen for the quality and commitment of its teams.

Today, data is central to customer relations and the Societe Generale Group organisation. In a digital environment, the Bank improves its services to its clients, its risk management, and its operational efficiency, thanks to data use while ensuring its quality, security and protection.

The Dunes technology hub (where finals will take place), located in Fontenay-sous-Bois, just east of Paris, is an illustration of the digital adventure Societe Generale and its staff have embarked upon in recent years. This innovative site, which welcomed its first occupants in September 2016, is where the majority of the Bank’s IT teams are based.

Institutional partners

École Normale Supérieure

At the same time a French grande école and a university, the Ecole normale supérieure provides in Paris, at the heart of the Quartier latin, excellent training through research, leading to various teaching and research professions, and contributes to train, through research, the senior executives of public administrations, as well as of French and European companies. The ENS also defines and applies scientific and technological research policies, from a multidisciplinary and international perspective.

Intellectual freedom, multidisciplinarity in humanities and sciences, individual attention to students, bountiful campus life, gathering students and professors from all disciplines, form the heart of the specificities of the Ecole normale supérieure. Since more than 2 centuries, the ENS prepares its students to the most various openings and the highest responsibilities, while being fully invested in the intellectual, scientific and cultural debates of its time – in particular through the multiplicity of the normaliens’ engagement.


École des Ponts ParisTech

École des Ponts ParisTech, created in 1747 under the name École Royale des Ponts et Chaussées, is a higher education establishment that trains engineers to a high level of scientific, technical and general competency. Apart from civil engineering and spatial planning, historically the source of its prestige, the School develops high-quality programs and research associated with the energy transition.

École des Ponts ParisTech provides a very high-level education in general engineering. The Graduate School, underpinned by the excellence of its 12 research labs, develops Masters and PhD programs in mechanical and civil engineering, materials sciences, nuclear engineering, mathematics, information technology, environmental sciences, urban planning, transportation, economics, and sociology.

Through its subsidiaries or in its own right, it develops initial education and lifelong learning that are closely connected with different sectors of the economy. It is therefore a key player in lifelong learning for senior executives in its prime disciplines.



Springer is an international publishing company that publishes books, e-books and peer-reviewed journals in science, humanities, technical and medical publishing. In mathematics, Springer is well known for its series of yellow books “Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics” and “Graduate Texts in Mathematics”.

Springer provided prizes for the laureates of the ITYM.


Fondation Blaise Pascal

La fondation Blaise Pascal a pour vocation de promouvoir, soutenir, développer et pérenniser les actions de médiation scientifique en mathématiques et informatique à destination de tout citoyen, notamment des jeunes et des femmes.

La fondation a pour ambition, à l’échelle nationale, de changer la perception de ces disciplines en donnant envie aux jeunes d’investir ces connaissances fondamentales.
