  • The 5th Annual International Mathematical Modeling Challenge (IMMC)

  • 2019 Finalist Presentation Hosted by Faculty of Engineering, CUHK

  • The 5th Annual International Mathematical Modeling Challenge - Mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau Regional & International Finalist Presentation Competition was successfully held on April 26 & 27 which was hosted by the Faculty of Engineering of The Chinese University of Hong Kong.

  • The teams went through the Autumn and/or Winter seasons, and International Round before they entered the finalist presentation round. They were selected among more than 580 teams from the 4 areas of China after their papers were presented in front of the Grand Jury.

  • There were more than 30 countries and regions registering in IMMC 2019. From the top 50 finalist teams in Greater China, the best 2 papers each from Mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau will be selected and recommended to the International Expert Panel by the IMMC Committee (Greater China). (Other participating countries or regions will each select the best one or two papers for the International Expert Panel's Judgement). All of the recommended papers will be examined in the beginning of June in Florence in Italy.

  • The problems of IMMC 2019 continue to align with the idea of STEM Education so as to integrate Mathematics with Science, Technology and Engineering and to apply mathematics in social and economic development and daily life. Taking account that Artificial Intelligence(AI) has been playing significant role in all aspects of the society in recent years and AI is an important domain in applying mathematical modeling, IMMC 2019 set AI as the theme of one of the problems (Problem A). The problem of the international round provides an opportunity for students to think as a global citizen and to express their planet concern through mathematical modeling in addressing the challenges our mother Earth is facing when raising the humankind in this planet.

  • IMMC 2019 Problems (Greater China):

  • Problem A: Nurturing Chatbot for Chatting about the History of Artificial Intelligence

  • Problem B: The Self-Control Mechanism in Online Gameplaying

  • Problem C: Calibrating Accelerometers

  • Problem D: Positioning and Treatment of Air Pollution Sources

  • Self-Chosen Problem: proposed by teams themselves

  • IMMC 2019 - Problem(International): What is the Earth’s carrying capacity for human life?

  • The top 50 teams represent the quality of IMMC 2019 in Greater China. After the presentation and judgement by the Grand Jury, 20 teams were awarded Outstanding Awards among whom 12 teams are for the Greater China Regional Contest and 8 teams, the International Round. They are the teams from The High School Affiliated to Southwest University, St. Paul's Co-educational College, Taipei Municipal Zhongshan Girls High School, Escola Hou Kong among other schools.

  • Based on the contest platform, IMMC also carries out extended teaching series, Advanced Innovation Program(AIP) and regional or international joint school mathematical modeling activities to advocate STEM education and to nurture creativity and innovation. All of the endeavors converge for students to experience the value of mathematical modeling, and its relevance with their current studies, university studies and even the future career so as to create values for students' lifelong development.

  • All teams who submitted papers successfully will be recognized as varied categories of awards. The news release and the list of awardee teams of Outstanding, Finalist and Meritorious could be found at the official website For other awards, participants can log into the website to view.

  • IMMC 2018 Finalist Presentation hosted by City University of Hong Kong

  • Eight Teams from Greater China Region Recommended for International Judgement

  • IMMC teams coming from Mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau all gathered at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) on 26-27 April 2018 to share the sheer joy of mathematics in solving real world problems, with a hope to benefit mankind with their creativity and innovation. The 4th International Mathematical Modeling Challenge (IM2C) for the Greater China region was held at this dynamic university where participating students showcased their works on using mathematical modelling to address various socio-economic implications. During the event, students and teachers visited labs and participated in workshops to learn state-of-the-art R&D at this prestigious young university. The following 8 teams (2 from each of the 4 areas of China) have been selected for recommendation to the International Expert Panel for further judgement for international awards competing with teams selected from 36 countries and areas.

  • - Beijing Academy, Mainland

  • - Shanghai Experimental School, Mainland

  • - Pui Kiu College, Hong Kong

  • - St. Paul's Co-educational College, Hong Kong

  • - Taichung First Senior High School, Taiwan

  • - Taipei Municipal Zhongshan Girls High School, Taiwan

  • NeoUnion organized teachers workshop on mathematical modeling instruction and assessment during Aug 8-10 in Shenzhen, China. Teachers from Mainland, Hong Kong and Macau attended the event. Professors Frederick Leung from the University of Hong Kong, Shangzhi Wang of Leading Expert of State Standard of Mathematics Curriculum, Zhonghua Qiao from Polytechnic University of Hong Kong, and Yong-Hong Kuo from the Chinese University of Hong Kong gave lectures on pedagogy and assessment of mathematics and modeling. Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Mathematical Modeling Education published by COMAP and SIAM were introduced and received warmly during the workshop. Vanke Meisha Academy provided venue and facilitated with logistics.

  • As an Honorary Advisor of the University of Hong Kong Foundation, NeoUnion ESC Organization is pleased to partner with Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences and sponsor the research project “Rethinking Spirituality and Religion in Asia” . The agreement signing ceremony was held on October 28, 2015 at the May Hall, the University of Hong Kong, where the Institute is situated. NeoUnion’s support will help fund the research on spiritual and religious development in China.



With sponsorship by NeoUnion, a team from Diocesan Girls School, Hong Kong, won the Chairman Special Prize at the 2015 International Youth Leader Innovation Conference (IYLIC) on July 15 2015 in Taiwan in recognition of the innovative idea in their Digital Media project on mathematical modeling. The judgment criteria cover innovation, chance of commercialization, exhibition quality, and team performance during conference. IYLIC 2015 conference was organized and sponsored by International Federation of Inventors’ Associations (IFIA) and Taiwan Invention & Innovation Industry Association (TIIA). The team consisted of Wai Chung CHENG, Ho Kiu Allie POON, Huilin LIANG, and Yee Sheung Sonia CHAN. They were the youngest team among the 120 competitors.

To celebrate the success of the 1st Annual International Mathematical Modeling Challenge - IM2C 2015 and the accomplishment of all participating teams, the Award Presentation Ceremony was held on July 5 2015 at the University of Hong Kong. This was a fest for students and teachers. Students, teachers, principals and parents from local and overseas high schools attended the ceremony including the International Outstanding Teams from USA, Singapore and Mainland China. Prestigious guests from education, academia, science and technology, business as well as the movie industry were present at this event. In the Ceremony, awarded teams, distinguished guests and IM2C organizers shared their experiences and insights on the Challenge and innovative mathematical modeling. Senior movie directors and producers, Mr. Tsui Siu-ming and Mr. Tang Yat-ming made remarks on winning teams’ projects and share stories in film making with teams and the audience.
