Welcome to Spain!
The Spanish Ministry of Education and Science feels honoured to host, for the first time in Spain, the International Mathematical Olympiad. It is our great pleasure to welcome in 2008 students and mathematicians from all over the world that have worked so hard to have the opportunity to share during this IMO their experiences and their love for Mathematics with a spirit of solidarity, cooperation and mutual understanding.
We are proud to have the chance to offer to all participants the best environment for this encounter, by gathering in Madrid the most brilliant young mathematicians of the world, which will permit sharing and exchanging ideas and establishing between each other enduring ties of friendship.
We will put the best of us so that this Olympiad may achieve the highest scientific level, and to make everybody's stay in Spain an unforgettable experience.
Finally, I would like to sincerely thank you for your participation and to warmly welcome you to Spain. I wish you a very pleasant stay and good luck to all in the competition.
