Five teams from the Undergraduate Program in Mathematics, Institut Teknologi Bandung, took part in the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM) and Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling (ICM) 2016. Each team consists of three students who had to propose solutions to open-ended problems within four days. The contests began on 28th of January 2016 at 8.00 PM EST and ended on 1st of February, at 8.00 PM EST. During this 96 hours, it was strictly forbidden for the team to seek help from advisor or anyone else, except from the members of the same team.

MCM and ICM are annual events that are organized by Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP) in USA. There were three type of problems for each MCM and ICM Contests and each team could only choose one problem to solve.
