The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) - is the World Championship in Mathematics for high school pupils. The First Mathematical Olympiad was held in 1959 in Romania; seven countries participated. In recent years, more than 100 countries from 5 continents participated in the competition. IMO Advisory Board approves the host country, enforces the rules and maintains the tradition of the IMO. In 2014 the International Mathematical Olympiad will be held in Cape Town, South Africa, and in 2015 - in Thailand.
