The Carnegie Mellon Informatics and Mathematics Competition (CMIMC) is an annual math and computer science competition held at Carnegie Mellon University by CMU students. The CMIMC 2017 will be held on January 28th, 2017. Contestants come in teams of 4-6 to participate in individual and team events.

Each individual round consists of 10 short-answer problems in 60 minutes. Each competitor takes two individual rounds from the topics of algebra, combinatorics, geometry, number theory, and - most excitingly - the newest computer science round. We saw the lack of computer science in other math competitions, so we figured that CMU would be the perfect place for this to start. The round is designed to have no programming knowledge required. Also, due to the novelty of this field of competition math, we're excited to announce that we have provided sufficient preparation material through Expii.com, covering all the necessary topics.
In the power round, we present an interesting topic with all of its background information and then pose some proof-based problems exploring the different branches of the topic. It's up to the team to collaboratively solve these problems in 60 minutes.
The team round consists of 10 short-answer problems from all five topics for the team to collaboratively solve in 30 minutes.
