Turn theory into practice by entering COMAP's Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling (ICM)®. This international modeling contest opportunity is an extension of COMAP’s MCM designed to develop and advance modeling and problem-solving skills in an interdisciplinary scenario to broaden both the focus of the problems and the methods of solution. In addition, this contest provides an experience in which students develop interpersonal skills through teamwork, develop technical writing and communication skills, feel a sense of accomplishment, and earn an impressive resume credential. Students and advisors report that participation and success in ICM provides an advantage when applying for internships and jobs.

The Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling (ICM)®, an international contest for high school students and college undergraduates, challenges teams of students to analyze, model, solve, and present solution reports to an open-ended application problem. High School and Undergraduate students form teams of up to three members. Each team may choose and submit an electronic solution to one of the three problem choices: ICM Problem D (operations research/network science), ICM Problem E (environmental science), ICM Problem F (policy).

A distinguished group of international educators and professionals read and judge all submissions. Judging occurs in March and April with results posted by early May. Levels of awards for all valid submissions are Successful Participant, Honorable Mention, Meritorious, Finalist, or Outstanding Winner. Submissions found to have rule or procedure violations, or extremely inadequate solution efforts may be designated as Disqualified or Unsuccessful.
This competition has not yet listed it's awards.
