Invitational (WMI) is the first international competition founded by Taiwan.
It gathers institutes and organizations worldwide that make efforts in
promoting and popularizing mathematics. The competition (finals) is held in
different countries every year. Through interacting with other math-loving
students that represent their countries, students can expand their worldview,
experience different cultures, and thus their horizon as well as their future
will be broaden. WMI not only provides math-gifted students with an opportunity
to participate in an international competition, but also allows the world to
witness their competitive capabilities.
