After all solution papers have been received by the M3 Challenge headquarters, a panel of mathematicians serving as triage judges read each solution paper, rank each paper according to the competition guidelines, and eliminate all but the most successful submissions. A panel of mathematicians serving as final judges will subsequently calibrate the remaining papers and tentatively rank the winning teams.
