52nd IChO 2020 Registration
An individual can not participate in ICHO 2020. Only the teams which are chosen through a national Chemistry Olympiad are invited to register themselves. Registration is organized through the head mentor for each country. The country receives the formal invitation by December. The registration data should be provided on time. If deadlines can not be adhered to, mentors should inform the organizers in time.
The host countries usually assist the teams to meet visa requirements. It has become a custom at the Olympiads that many countries make the problems of their respective national olympiads or selection exams available to mentors of other countries (translated or in the original language). This has been done via printouts, CD-ROMs or websites.

The organizer retains the original marked manuscripts.
