Article 1 – Goal and Participation
1. The International Conference of Young Scientists (ICYS) is essentially an individual competition on the presentations of scientific research carried out by secondary school students which are evaluated by the International Jury.
2. On the date of the opening (ceremony) of the Conference the students have not entered any kind of higher education nor will their age exceed 20 years.
3. The following table gives an overview upon the allowed combinations of numbers of students, presentations and leaders of a delegation:
|3||2 or 3||1|
|4||3 or 4||1 or 2|
|5||3 to 5||1 or 2|

Each country sends normally 1 delegation. Additional members to the delegation should be requested by the Country Representative to the LOC. The LOC will provide a procedure for processing these requests.
