– The MIMMC judges are primarily interested in the team’s approach and methods.

– Abstract: The abstract is an essential part of your solution report. The judges place considerable weight on the abstract.

Your concise presentation in the abstract should inspire a reader to learn about the details of your work. Thus, an abstract should clearly describe the problem, outline of the model, the advantages of your approach and your conclusions. 

– Solution: The solution will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • Comprehensiveness of the abstract that include problem description, outline of the model, the advantages of the approach and the conclusion.
  • Conciseness and organization of the solution report.
  • Clear restatement of the problem, as appropriate.
  • Clear methodology in solving the problem including the motivation or justification for the model that is used.
  • Assumptions made with rationale are clearly stated.
  • Parameters used are well explained and justified.
  • Adequacy of the model in representing the real problem.
  • Discussion on how the model could be tested, including error analysis and stability (conditioning, sensitivity, etc.).
  • Discussion on any apparent strengths or weaknesses in your model or approach.
  • Proper source of references.
