Invitation to IMMC 2017 Summit and Award Ceremony in Greater China

Invitation to IMMC 2017 Summit and Award Ceremony in Greater China

 

Dear teachers and students,

 

We warmly invite you to attend IMMC 2017 Summit and Award Ceremony during August 1~3 at the University of Hong Kong (HKU). It is the climax of series of IMMC activities in 2017 and a feast of STEM and math modeling for secondary school students and teachers across Greater China.

 

International Mathematical Modeling Challenge (IMMC or styled as IM2C), established in 2014 in Boston, US, is an innovative contest in mathematical modeling for secondary school students all over the world, whose co-founders and co-sponsors are the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP) and NeoUnion ESC Organization (NeoUnion). The aim of IMMC is to promote mathematical modeling education and enhance students’ core competences in mathematics, encouraging participants to explore the application of mathematical modeling in real life situations to solve problems of importance. IMMC in Greater China is an inclusive and sharing platform for both secondary school students to practice mathematical modeling, and for schools to demonstrate and exchange their educational accomplishments in mathematics and STEM. For more information, please visit our official website at www.immchallenge.org and www.immchallenge.org.hk

 

IMMC 2017 in Greater China is an interdisciplinary practice integrating mathematics with science, technology and engineering which reflects the essence of STEM education. NeoUnion works with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE China) to co-organize the IMMC 2017 in Greater China. The Problem Setting Committee and the Judging Panel consist of experts and professors from IEEE and IMMC Committee (Greater China) whose disciplinary fields cover mathematics, science, technology, and engineering. Prof Yang WANG, a member of IMMC International Expert Panel, Dean and Chair Professor of School of Science at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology acts as Chairman of the Problem Setting Committee and Grand Jury of the Final Presentation Competition of IMMC 2017 Greater China. A detailed description of IMMC 2017 and its rule is available in the IMMC 2017 Invitation at http://istem.info/web/news_detail.php?id=42 The Problems of IMMC 2017 and the List of Awardees are attached for your reference.

 

During IMMC 2017 Summit and the Award Presentation Ceremony, awardees of Outstanding teams will be invited to give Plenary Speeches together with the Distinguished Scholar's Scientific Speeches. Parallel Meetings, Workshops, Expos of STEM, and Cultural and Educational Tours for student scholars and teachers will also be held during the Summit. Dr. Howard E Michel, former President of IEEE will be present the Ceremony and deliver speech to the Plenary Conference.
