EUPhO 2020 (online) Team registration form.
Dear EUPhO 2020 team leaders, please fill in the following registration form. The registration is open until 5th July 2020.
The online edition of EuPhO-2020 will take place from 20th to 26th July.
For this online competition, the statutes of EuPhO will still apply, cf.
, except for §4 and §6. A brief summary of the important points:
- Each country can send only one team of five contestants;
- Guest teams from outside the Europe will be admitted;
- If the number of guest teams starts becoming too big for the Academic Committee to handle, we may need to limit the number of guests (priority is given to those who have participated earlier, and to those who have registered earlier).
Regulations additional to the Statutes, applicable only to this online edition of EuPhO.
The contestants of each national team together with a supervisor are asked to gather into a single room. The competition room should:
- have a good air ventilation;
- be big enough to ensure that the distance between the contestants is at least two meters;
- have a reliable Internet connection.
A printer for printing out the problem texts should be either in the competition room, or in its immediate neighbourhood.
From each competition room, a video stream is sent to the organizers (Academic Committee and volunteers) over a Zoom connection. The video frame should cover all the contestants and their desks, those leaders who are inside the room, and the entrances of the room.
Immediately after the test has been finished, the written test papers need to be scanned inside the competition room while the video stream is still active.
If in some countries, strict mobility and distancing limitations make it impossible to gather the whole team into a single room, organizers will negotiate with the team leaders to work out the best possible solution.
The participation fee covering the expenses of the Academic Committee, graders and organizers, as well as special awards of the winners is 50€ per participant from European countries, and 70€ per participant of guest teams.
The Academic Committee is trying to work out a low-cost experiment the components of which need to be bought by the team leaders. So, team leaders should be ready to fund the purchase of the required equipment. At this point of time, we cannot say the exact cost, but we can guarantee that it will not exceed 100€ per contestant (our target, though, is 50€ per contestant). Of course, you'll be able to use the purchased equipment for training purposes in the future.
Many details are still being worked out, for instance, how the translations will be made.
The fist competition round will take place on 20th July;
The second round will take place on 21st July.
Both rounds will start tentatively at 9:00 GMT.
From this point on, contestants can leave the meeting point of their team, and return to their homes.
Academic Committee and graders will grade the papers during the next three days, preliminary results will be announced as early as possible, but not later than 24th July, 23:59 GMT.
Moderation will take place over Skype or Zoom on 25th July, and the closing ceremony will take place over Zoom on 26th July. Medals and diplomas will be sent by mail to the team leaders during the next few days.

In which language(s) you will need translations? Which character set will be used?
Do you or some of the leaders have LaTeX?
The problem texts will be prepared in LaTeX using Overleaf. Therefore, it is highly recommended that your translations will be also done in Overleaf. This is the easiest way as you'll need only to change the text and keep formulae and figures intact. We can provide assistance with your first steps in Overleaf
I am (or my colleague helping me is) fluent with LaTeX
I have seen LaTeX documents, but I don't know how to write in LaTeX using my character set
