Welcome to the European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad EGMO 2023 in Portorož, Slovenia!

The European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad (EGMO) is an international competition in mathematics, which addresses female high school students whose commitment to mathematics goes beyond the usual school curriculum. To participate at the EGMO, the students have to qualify at the respective national competition. Together with their advisors the students form the respective national delegation.

The EGMO is held since 2012, each year in a different country. The 12th EGMO will take place in Slovenia, from 13 April to 19 April 2023, hosted by the Society of Mathematicians, Physicists, and Astronomers of Slovenia (DMFA Slovenije). The preparations for the event are being held under honorary patronage of the President of the Republic of Slovenia Borut Pahor. We expect to host 60 countries (European and non-European), for a total of about 240 contestants. We have rich experiences: our team has been participating in the EGMO since 2013 and it will be our third mathematical international competition (we hosted IMO 2006 and MEMO 2015).

The EGMO promotes young scientists, increases the proportion of female students in IMO teams, supports the social, cultural and interdisciplinary exchange between teenagers from all over the world.

Therefore, in the beauty of our green country with a bit of the seaside, we hope that our enthusiasm for this event and the support of our partner organizations will make EGMO 2023 memorable.
