The International Mathematical Olympiad – an overview The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO for short) is a major event in the world mathematical scene today, featuring close to 100 different countries, but it began on a very small note. The first IMO was held in 1959 when Romania invited a small number of countries from what was then known as the Eastern Bloc to participate in the event. The following seven countries participated in this IMO: Romania, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Poland, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR, more commonly known as Soviet Union; the Union ceased to exist in 1991) and the German Democratic Republic (more commonly known as East Germany; note that West Germany and East Germany united in 1989).
