IMC 2022 in Greater China Region functioning as a selection mechanism for IM C International Contest, is an interdisciplinary practice integrating mathematics with science, technology and engineering and applying mathematics in socioeconomic context, 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 IM C 2022 in Greater China. The papers recognized as Outstanding and other award categories cover different types of problem including Smart Lamppost Deployment (Problem A-Autumn), How Much CO2 Can We Store Within The Surface in China (Problem B- Autumn), The Risk and Challenge of Future Outbreaks of Other Notifiable Infectious Diseases in the Post-Covid-19 Pandemic Period (Problem C- Autumn), Building Virtual a Hong Kong in Metaverse (Problem D- Winter), How Blockchain Can Help Alliance among Merchants of a Community Drive Business Value? (Problem E, Winter), Predicting the Cross-boarder Transmission of Covid-19 (Problem F- Winter), and the International Problem, Aboard! Boarding and Disembarking a Plane (published on May 2 2022) and problems self-chosen represent the best endeavors of the year. The 8 papers of International Contest in Greater China, will be recommended by the IMMC Committee-Zhonghua for the Global Judgment by the International Expert Panel to compete for the international awards with the best teams from other more than 30 registered countries or areas.
Based on the judgment of Final Presentation by the Grand Jury and Paper Review by the Expert Panel through Autumn, Winter, and International Contest, all teams who had submitted successfully solution papers were awarded as Outstanding, Finalist, Meritorious, Honorable Mention, and Successful Participant.
