of their prizes are to be in the ratio 2:1. The Competiton
Committee can adjust (e.g., round) the prizes slightly.

4. The competition is controlled by the Competition Committee.
It consists of delegates from participating universities.
Each university sends one representative to the Committee.
The Competition Committee is responsible for:

a) selection and evaluation of competition problems which
will be solved in each category,
b) correction and evaluation of students' solutions and
c) determination of the list of the winners.

A majority of votes is necessary for the acceptance of the
winner. In the case of a tie, the chairman of the Committee
casts the deciding vote.

5. The first meeting of the Committee will take place on
27th March 2007 at 9 a.m. The members of the Committee will
elect their chairman and will select competition problems for
each category.

6. There will be four mathematical problems in each category.
Students will have four hours to solve these problems. Their
solutions will be evaluated by the Committee then. The total
score of a student will be equal to the sum of the points for
the four mathematical problems.

7. Each participating university shall announce its delegate's
name and his e-mail as soon as possible. It is prefered that
delegates register via the registration form at
http://albert.osu.cz/~kma/j17reg/j17reg.html

Please specify the name of your university and the category
for which the problem is proposed explicitely in the file.
If you wish, you can add a short note explaining the origin
of the problem (e.g., the name of the person who proposed the

competition problems to any of its students before the
beginning of the competition.
