The Southeast Asian Mathematics Olympiad, or SEA-MO, is the Regional Mathematics Competition in Southeast Asia. This competition is organised by the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Regional Centre for Education in Science and Mathematics (SEAMEO RECSAM), which bases its operations in Penang, Malaysia. Unlike the International Mathematical Olympiad, the venue for this competition is not rotated from country to country and it has been held in Penang, Malaysia since its conception. Each participating country is represented by four participants, a team leader and deputy leader. Participation in this event is strictly by invitation only. In 2005, the nine countries which participated were Brunei, Indonesia, Cambodia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Competitors have to sit for three papers: the Short Answer test consisting of twenty questions; the Individual Power Test which spans three hours and comprises five questions; and the Team Test.

  • 2nd SEA-MO - 18 June to 22 June 2001

The organising committee is now working towards eventually being able to hold the competition every two years. In 2005, the winning country was Thailand, while the winning individual was Wuttisak Trongsiriwat of Thailand.
