SMPF 2020 – Changes in Format

Kindly take note that the change in format is only for this year.


The Singapore Mathematics Project Festival (SMPF) was inaugurated by the Singapore Mathematical Society in 2001 in recognition of the fact that creative and innovative work in mathematics may best be reflected in project work wherein ideas may be thoroughly explored and carried through from start to finish.  The Society received a donation from Mr Foo Fook Lian to establish the Foo Kean Pew Memorial Prizes awarded to projects adjudged to be the best in the respective sections of the Festival.
