Elefter 2022

ELEFTER is the preliminary.

Competition format

The competition will be held in English. The problems will be categorized in the following way:

  1. Astrophysics and Cosmology [3 problems];
  2. Solid State Physics [3 problems];
  3. Particle Physics [3 problems];
  4. Other [6 problems].

“Other” will have any problems which are not directly connected to the first three categories (e.g. from quantum computing, fluid dynamics, etc.).

Participants submit solutions individually. There will be one winner in each category*. The four winners will compose the Georgian national team for PLANCKS 2022.

* If the top scorer of the category has less than 20% of the total points in that category, then the winner will be chosen from another category.
