The brackets for SF 4 depended on Rank R after SF 3, according to a pre-determined rule announced during the lot. The sequence of performances in SF 4, Semi-Finals, and Finals was decided by the Captain winning the Captain's Contest in each Group (Ch. 2, I, 4.) Rejected challenges were counted together for all SFs, including Semi-Finals (a total of 3 rejections not incurring a penalty.) Main problems (Nos. 4—17) were available for challenge in SF 1 and SF 2, Invent Yourself (Nos. 1—3) were available for challenge in SF 3, and additional problems (Nos. 21—26) were available for challenge in SF 4. As the number of Teams N was 8≤N≤11, six Teams with the highest Rank R after SF 4 were allowed to the Semi-Finals in two parallel Groups and had secured their Bronze Medals (Ch. 4, II, 3; Ch. 5, I, 4.) There was a challenge procedure in the Semi-Finals (Ch. 1, VIII, 4.) Three Finalists were three winners (by V; in case of any potential ambiguity by SP) of both Semi-Final Groups taken together. Only main problems (Nos. 4—17) were available for the challenge in the Semi-Finals and the choice for the Finals. Priority in the choice of problems for Finals was by the Rank R after Semi-Finals (Ch. 4, II, 5), and it was not forbidden to pick up a previously reported problem, which one Team did. Finalists had secured their Silver Medals, but all three Finalists eventually earned V=1 and won Gold Medals (Ch. 5, I, 2.) This Table summarizes only the decisive grading parameters, and the detailed results of the competition can be found here.

Announcement of the Finalists

In the video filmed by Mate Sharvadze on June 24, 2015 at ca. 14h00 CET, Ilya Martchenko is seen saying, "[I am] happy to announce that the absolute winner in the Room A is the Team Croatia; that the absolute winner in the Room B is Team Georgia; and then, finally, we have only one team which also has V=1, and this is the Team of China. Unfortunately, Team of Belarus and Teams Serbia-1 and Serbia-2 have Bronze Medals. [...] This is not all because right now we need to have the updates from the Team Captains of these [three Finalist teams on the problems they would like to report in the Final Science Fight]."

Update 2015/06/21: The results of the IYNT 2015 are updated at real time at this page.

Update 2015/06/17: The original statements of problems Invent Yourself for the Science Fight 3 are posted online.

Update 2015/06/15: Official booklet for the 3rd IYNT 2015 is posted and went to press. The final *.pdf file can be downloaded here.

Update 2015/06/08: The regular pre-registration of teams was open between August 25, 2014 and April 15, 2015. By June 8, 2015, 10 teams from 7 different countries are expected to participate at the 3rd IYNT 2015.

Update 2015/04/04: We remind all pre-registered teams and potential entrants that the fee payment deadline is set to April 15, 2015 by the LOC. The deadline to decide on the composition of teams is set to May 15, 2015. Teams requiring a Serbian visa are recommended to begin the visa application process early enough.

Update 2015/02/25: Amended Regulations of the IYNT are approved and adopted. A scan of signed Regulations and the original official PDF are available for download.

Update 2015/02/11: By this date, 21 teams from 18 different countries have pre-registered for the 3rd IYNT 2015. To put these figures into context, the 1st IYNT 2013 and the 2nd IYNT 2014 taken together have attracted a total of 21 teams from 12 different countries. As we celebrate this important milestone, please spread the word about the 3rd IYNT to widen the participation further.

Update 2014/11/07: The dates of the 3rd International Young Naturalists' Tournament are June 19—25, 2015. All teams can depart after the closing ceremony in the morning of June 25. If needed, nearly three full days are available to transfer to Thailand to the 28th IYPT 2015.

Update 2014/09/07: The 3rd International Young Naturalists' Tournament will be held in Belgrade, Serbia. As opposed to the earlier notice of Tehran as the host city for 2015, the IYNT General Council resolved to switch the host for the year 2015. Reduction in travel expenses will significantly widen participation in 2015 and foster the IYNT engagement over the long term.

Update 2014/08/26: Just at the very end of the Closing Ceremony of the 2nd IYNT 2014, the General Council opened a sealed envelope containing the Problems for the 3rd IYNT 2015. We wish all our teams a successful and entertaining preparation.

What makes the IYNT special?

In 2014, we asked our supporter Andrei Klishin, MIT, about the reasons that attracted him to the IYNT. Andrei formulated his opinion as follows,

"The modern world depends on science and technology; not merely on their existence, but on their never ceasing advancement. This requires ever growing rows of inventive thinkers and qualified specialists, customarily produced by universities around the globe. The IYNT and IYPT defy this conservative approach and claim that it is never too early to start. Reaching results in modern world requires accurate, diligent and efficient work, concise and contentful discussions and mutually enhancing collaborations. This is not solely the realm of adult scientists. We in the Tournaments movement believe that the principles of professional work can be acquired in much earlier age and that they do not necessarily require attending formal lectures and classes. We give the labor of learning into the hands of the middle and high school students, because that is exactly what the adult world would want from them."
