The Scientific Committee of Hang Lung Mathematics Awards comprises a panel of internationally renowned mathematicians. The committee is the highest authority on the assessment of the research reports, and upholds the academic standard of the competition.
There are two stages of the assessment: research report review and oral defense.
Remarks: During the Research Report Review process, some teams may be invited to an interview. The objective of this interview is to understand the process of research conducted by the team, so as to provide more information to the Scientific Committee. This interview does not form part of the selection process.
Remarks: As many teams would have previously come in contact with members of the Executive Committee through activities held by the Resource Center, the Executive Committee will only play the role of liaison in the assessment process, and will not participate in the adjudication process.
