Academic Honesty and Receiving Guidance

In the process of the research, a team may ask the opinions and accept guidance from other people. However, team members should should have actually performed the research work and should truly understand the content of their work. Methods and results of others used in the research should be documented in the references of the report. In any case, each participating team should observe the common standard of academic integrity adopted by most mathematics journals.

The Resource Center under the Executive Committee may organize activities from time to time in order to provide guidance and assistance to the teams. Each team may participate according to their own needs. Further information about these activities will be announced through this website.


Intellectual Property

Original work and results are the intellectual belongings to the participants and this is respected by Hang Lung Mathematics Awards. Hang Lung Mathematics Awards only reserves first right of refusal on the works of awarded winners. Winners should approach Hang Lung Mathematics Awards first before they publish their works or derive any benefit from the work. In addition, works of winners may be used in part or in full for the promotion of Hang Lung Mathematics Awards.
