The International Mathematical Union (IMU) is an international non-governmental and non-profit scientific organization, with the purpose of promoting international cooperation in mathematics.
The CMS International Affairs Committee acts as the Canadian National Committee to the IMU. The committee communicates the views of the Canadian mathematical community on relevant issues to the IMU, promotes the capabilities and strengths of Canadian mathematics internationally, and provides information to the Canadian Mathematical Community about the IMU's position on relevant issues and IMU activities. In addition, the Committee selects the official delegates to attend the meeting of the General Assembly of the IMU, which is held once every four years.
The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) is a professional organization that focuses on mathematics accessible at the undergraduate level.
The CMS representative acts as the voice of the MAA's Canadian membership.
CMS Contact(s): Richard Guy, MAA Governor of Canada
The inaugural Mathematical Congress of the Americas will take place in Guanajuato, Mexico, August 5-9, 2013. The goal of the Congress is to highlight the excellence of mathematical achievements in the Americas within the context of the international arena, and foster collaborations among researchers, students, institutions and mathematical societies in the Americas.
The CMS is a founding sponsor of MCA 2013.
CMS Contact(s): Alejandro Adem, CMS Representive to the Steering Committee
Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 (MPE2013) is an international initiative to provide a platform to showcase the essential relevance of mathematics to planetary problems.
The CMS is a MPE2013 partner.
