The competition is open to any student at any level of study who is interested in mathematics. It consists of two parts - an individual part and a team part - which take place in two consecutive days. The official language of the Competition is English.
This year's edition took place from 4th to 6th November 2022. Individual part was held on Friday, and the team part was held on Saturday.

A total of 26 teams representing 27 universities from all over the world were present.
Individual part of the competition was won by Grzegorz Adamski from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (Poland), who solved all five problems and thus gained the maximum number of points.
