The fifth Caucasus Mathematical Olympiad will take place on March 13-18, 2020, in Maykop, Republic of Adygea. The organizers of the Olympiad are Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Adygea and Adyghe State University, as well as Republican Scientific and Mathematical School. Nonprofit partnership with Centre for New Technologies in Education “Matema”. The Presidential Grants Program funds the Olympiad.
CMO 2020 International Problem Selection Committee prepared a series of problems worthy of European Mathematical Schools. Committee members hail from Russia, Bulgaria, Luxemburg, Belgium and Iran.
“Our main goal is not only to educate and promote science. We wish to unite Caucasian territories, South Federal district, countries of the Mediterranean region in a wholesome culturally beneficent entity with strong, friendly ties to such communities from abroad, so our gifted children could communicate with each other across the globe”, – says Daud Mamyi, Rector of the Adyghe State University”.

The Coordination Council invites students of Grades 8-11 of 15 regions in Southern Russia (Southern and North-Caucasus Federal Districts) and students of equivalent grades in other countries to participate in the Olympiad. We invite:
- Winners and award recipients of the final round of the Russian Mathematical Olympiad in grades 9-10 in the 2018-2019 school year,
- school students of Southern Russia who won in the final round of the Euler Olympiad in the2018-2019 school year, students in grades 9, 10, and 11 who won in the regional rounds of the Russian Mathematical Olympiad in 2019-2020 or in the regional rounds of the Euler Olympiad in Southern Russia in 2019-2020.
- Students of foreign countries who are winners and award recipients of the regional and final rounds of the National Mathematical Olympiads in their countries.
The Olympiad is a two-stage event, with four tasks for each stage.
Apart from the competition, the program of the Olympiad will introduce participants to the nature, history, and culture of Adygea. Among other things, the program will include popular lectures on Math and Natural Sciences, as well as various cultural and sport events, such as national Adyghe dancing, guitar jam session, culinary tasting Adyghe guestroom, visits to the local museum, and a trip to the mountain caves.
