Friday, 02 Sep 2011 10:29 AM

Six cities have formally submitted applications to host the 2020 Olympic Summer Games, the International Olympic Committee announced.
Baku, Azerbaijan; Doha, Qatar; Istanbul, Turkey; Madrid, Spain; Rome, Italy; and Tokyo, Japan will all be evaluated by the IOC after submitting their applications, the Kansas City Star reports. 
The Candidature Acceptance Procedure, or the evaluation process used for the 2020 games, examines whether the cities are technically able to host the Olympic Games.
Candidates who make it to the second phase of the process will submit detailed descriptions of their Olympic projects to the IOC executive board by January 7, 2013, for consideration.
The commission will then travel to each competing city and report back to the entire IOC membership. The membership will elect a host city on September 7, 2013, and make their announcement in Buenos Aires.
