International Mathematical Union

The Australian Academy of Science has the opportunity to nominate a candidate for the Executive Committee of the International Mathematical Union (IMU). After nomination, the candidate will be voted on at the General Assembly in Rio 2018. It should be someone interested in the objectives of the IMU: promoting maths internationally – with special foci on excellence (the prizes, the ICMs), maths education (ICMI), connections with Science (ICSU), developing countries (CDC) and/or new technologies as they affect maths. And the person must have a sufficient international reputation to hold a realistic chance of being elected.

Nominations close late in October, so to enable the Academy to prepare a nomination, please send suggested names (with the agreement of the person suggested) to Peter Forrester ASAP.

Information about the IMU can be found at http://www.mathunion.org/general/about.
