To oversee, in accordance with the policies determined by the Board of Directors, and in accordance with policies outlined in contracts between the CMS and other agencies, the activities associated with international mathematics organizations. To consider other matters of an international nature which are of interest to the Canadian mathematical community.
The International Affairs (IA) Committee is responsible for relations with international organizations and support of the National Research Council's international affiliations relating to mathematics or mathematics education. The membership of the IA Committee shall be such as to ensure geographic, linguistic, gender and discipline distribution. For the International Mathematical Union, the IA Committee acts as the Canadian National Committee (CNC/IMU).
Some of the duties of the IA Committee include; reporting annually to the National Research Council (NRC), the Canadian entries for the World Directory of Mathematicians and selecting the Canadian official delegates to international meetings (see below).
The mandate of this committee extends beyond the CMS to other organizations with interests in mathematics. The IA Committee must consult with such other groups as may be appropriate.
The CMS does not provide reimbursement for the travel and related expenses for the official delegates.
These delegates will communicate the policies of NRC regarding issues related to finances, constitution, and by-laws and will give careful consideration to the advice and guidance of NRC on other issues.
The report should demonstrate the compliance of the CMS with the principles outlined in the contract between the CMS and NRC.
The IA Committee will consist of the Chair and four other appointed members, each for four-year staggered terms, renewable once. The ex-officio members from CAIMS, SSC and CMESG need not be members of the CMS.
