IMMC 2020 in Greater China Region functioning as a selection mechanism for IMMC International Contest, is an interdisciplinary practice integrating mathematics with science, technology and engineering and applying mathematics in socioeconomic context, including AI and machine learning, and encouraging students to identify, analyze and solve real world problems of importance. We work with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE China) and Hong Kong Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (HKSIAM) to co-organize the IMMC 2020 in Greater China. The papers recognized as Outstanding covering different types of problem including Smart Water Data Analysis (Problem A-Autumn), Credibility in Online News (Problem B- Autumn), Grid Frequency Response (Problem C- Winter), Cyber Insurance Incentive Strategy (Problem D- Winter), and the International Problem (published after May 22) and problems self-chosen represent the best papers of the year. The 8-best of International Round, of which 2 from each area of Greater China, will be recommended by the IMMC Committee-Zhonghua for the Final Judgement by the International Expert Panel to compete for the international awards with the best teams from other 33 registered countries or areas (1-2 teams from each country/area).
Based on the judgement of Final Presentation by the Grand Jury and Paper Review by the Expert Panel through Autumn, Winter, and International Round, all teams who had submitted solution papers were awarded as Outstanding, Finalist, Meritorious, Honorable Mention, and Successful Participant. Teams winning Outstanding, Finalist and Meritorious are listed in the appendix; all teams will be informed by email individually and can view and download the award certificate by logging in the official website www.immchallenge.org.cn or www.immchallenge.org.hk.
