He was an inaugural Vice-President, founded the international conferences of WFNMC with an outstanding conference at Waterloo WFNMC1 infilled in the gap to become President in and saw through, at his own initiative, a Constitution, which was approved in The efforts, orientation, and help from Francisco Bellot made it possible, inthat Costa Rica became the first Central American country in being home for the XI O.

After serving two years as deputy leaders of the Spanish Olympiad team in andhe served for the next 8 years as team leader.

The first principal method of communication was a Newsletter, published soon after founding of the organisation, later to become the Journal “Mathematics Competitions”. Finally, a web site will be developed to attempt to make on-line the various significant competitions and related activities around the world, a description of the competitions, and contact details.

Both are intended to recognise achievement in establishing Mathematical Enrichment Programs, as recognised from an international perspective. Warren has continued as Editor seeing its rlsado through to the establishment of the Journal, and he is still its Editor today. He argued that for the sake of problem culture as well as for practical applications, e.

ICMI Bulletin No. 47, December

Francisco Bellot Rosado Francisco Bellot Rosado received the BA degree from University of Madrid in and has been associated with the Institute Emilio Ferrari of Valladolid in some capacity sinceserving both as secretary and as principal, and later as Associate Professor in the department of Algebra, Geometry and Topology.


Unlike the International Mathematical Olympiad, an event designed to enable the elite students of all countries to test their skills against each other, the WFNMC was always designed to have wider application, enabling students of all standards to be involved and hopefully benefit.

The organization and facilities in Tokyo ftancisco outstanding. The forum took the place of addresses by four members from different continents, followed by open discussion.

Bellot Rosado, Francisco

It was Peter O’Halloran’s study leave at Waterloo in where he first learnt of mathematics competitions on a wide scale and planned the introduction of similar events, adapted to local conditions, in Australia. Ron is a highly experienced mathematics educator and was one of those responsible for introducing the Canadian Competitions at the University of Waterloo in Also Francisco Bellot-Rosado has been a very influential figure in another prestigious mathematical contest that involves more than twenty-five countries: Presentation of Latvian Medals This year is the 50th year of the Latvian Mathematical Society, which decided to commemorate the year by awarding Gold Medals to a number of mathematicians and mathematical educators who had made international contributions to their field.

One of the main results was a decision to form a task group to consider and report on ways in which teachers may become more involved with activities.

Additionally, Francisco is noted for single-handedly founding a Mediterranean Regional Mathematics Olympiad. Highlight was possibly the Japanese speaker Nob Yoshigahara, a puzzle creator, who showed some ideas which might also be useful in the creation of mathematics problems.

Again quoting from a letter beolot nomination, “As an O. The close proximity of many facilities enabled highly useful contribution between the many delegates from all parts of the world. Francisco Bellot Rosado received the BA degree from University of Madrid in and has been associated with the Institute Emilio Ferrari of Valladolid in some capacity sinceserving both as secretary and as principal, and later as Associate Professor in the department of Algebra, Geometry and Topology.


It has until had three Presidents, two of whom have served for long terms and made significant individual beloot.

Mathematics > General Mathematics

One of Francisco’s recommenders said, referring to his Pravets talk, “was about the practice of recycling competition problems in the problem creation and problem selection. Presently, he is working on the organization and initiation of a new international mathematical olympiad for the six Central American countries and we are sure he will succeed as usual.

Other aims in the next four years will be to develop a statement on the role and scope of WFNMC, not only with competitions but related activities such as enrichment courses, mathematics clubs, mathematics camps, problems journals and resources for teachers and how WFNMC sees the benefits of competitions and the related activities to mathematical education in general. This Newsletter was initially edited by Warren Atkins Australia.

He conceived the idea of such an organization in which mathematicians from different countries could compare their experiences and hopefully improve their activities as a result.


Up to three of these Awards are now made every two years. In rodado, there were some business meetings in which elections, presentations of awards, and discussion on the future took place. Speaking softly, he delivered a true challenge. He was elected to the Bulgarian Parliament, and became Chairman of the Parliament, one of the most responsible positions in the country.

Now retired, Ron decided that it was time to move on, and he announced that he would not be available as President. It also intends to articulate the role and use of competitions in mathematics education.
