Asia Pacific [2020]01


Chapter I General Provisions


Article 1 The Asia-pacific College Students Mathematical Contest in Modeling (hereinafter referred to as the Contest) is a subject competition for college Students in the Asia-Pacific region sponsored by Beijing Image and Graphics Society. The contest is organized by the Organizing Committee of the Asia-Pacific College Students Mathematical Contest in Modeling.


Article 2 With the rapid development of artificial intelligence, automatic driving, virtual reality, 5G and other technologies, image and graphics technology is also the important foundation of modern science and technology.

The field of image graphics covers digital image processing, image understanding, computer vision, data visualization, pattern recognition, computer image graphics, medical image processing, spatial information systems, etc.

The feature of the competition is to combine the problems in the field of image graphics with mathematical models, popularize the knowledge of image graphics, and use mathematical methods to solve the problems in the field of image graphics.

The aim of the competition is to stimulate students' enthusiasm in learning mathematics, improve their comprehensive ability of building mathematical models and using computer technology to solve practical problems, encourage the majority of students to actively participate in extracurricular scientific and technological activities, expand the scope of knowledge, cultivate creative spirit and sense of cooperation.
