Updates

Update 2021/08/15: The problems for the 10th IYNT 2022 are released.

Update 2021/06/30: The continued COVID-19 pandemic disrupts the plans for a safe and predictable IYNT 2021 in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Although a recovery to more normal conditions of travel and face-to-face meetings is possible for the dates in November, the organizers lack evidence to consider such a plan reliable. Shifting the dates of the IYNT 2021 so late in the year would further disrupt annual cycles of the IYNT 2021 and the IYNT 2022, and disrupt preparations of our participant teams. Hosting a safe IYNT 2021 is a core priority for its organizers and participants.

Our aim is to conclude this difficult year with the 9th IYNT 2021 adapted to the pandemic situation. The 9th IYNT 2021 will take place on Discord platform on August 11—15, 2021, similarly to the 8th IYNT 2020.

Registration deadline: July 28, 2021
Payment deadline: July 28, 2021
Team fee: 380.- EUR per Team (6 students and 2 team leaders)
Dates of the IYNT: August 11—15, 2021

Update 2021/05/04: Due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic in Kazakhstan, the LOC and the GC are increasingly confident that hosting the 9th IYNT 2021 in the planned dates (August 8—15) may become impossible. The LOC is considering a backup plan to shift the dates of the IYNT to the first week of November. If these efforts cannot come to fruition as intended, the 9th IYNT 2021 would be organized reliably as an online tournament. The LOC and the GC thank all participants for their patience in today's World of global pandemic and notice their exceptional work and motivation. The LOC expects to take their important decisions in early June.

Update 2021/03/10: Amended Regulations of the IYNT are approved and adopted. A scan of signed Regulations and the original official PDF are available for download. The Regulations are designed to resolve ambiguities and practical questions encoutered at the IYNT between 2016 and 2020 whilst keeping all principal rules, routines, criteria and procedures exactly as in the previous Regulations.

Update 2020/08/31: The 9th IYNT 2021 will take place in Almaty, Kazakhstan at the Republican Physics and Mathematics School. Planned dates of the IYNT are August 8—15, 2021. Almaty, the old capital and the largest city of Kazakhstan, is conveniently served by Almaty International Airport. We look forward to welcoming all participants and jurors of the 9th IYNT 2021.

Update 2020/08/18: We temporarily suspend the provision Ch. 1, VII, 1 of the IYNT Regulations and anticipatorily release the problems for the 9th IYNT 2021.
