I would like to thank all the schools who took part, and I hope you will all take part again next year. I also hope that many schools who did not take part this year will take part next year. Watch these WEB pages; even if you do not get an invitation, we will still be delighted for you to take part provided you fill in the registration forms before the closing date for entries.

The exam will take place at about the same time again next year. We will try to avoid important dates like GRE's and ACM. Occasionally announcements about the competition will be posted in the newsgroup sci.math. Otherwise no substantial changes in the format of the exam are planned.
