Below is an announcement from the IMU regarding pre-announcements in the lead up to this conference. Please log any activities you are planning to hold.

Dear supporter of the International Day of Mathematics,

  1. You are invited to visit the website A media page will very soon be online with logos in different languages and material for announcing the International Day of Mathematics (IDM). This material can be used to spread the news in your community.
  2. We are preparing a world map that will appear on the website the map will show dots where celebrations of IDM2020 are to take place. We want to have already some celebrations announced around the world when the map will appear on the website. Since your organization exprressed support for the IDM, we are contacting you with the hope that your organization will be willing to put a pre-announcement of a celebration.

May we invite you to fill the following form so that we put a dot on the map as a pre-announcement of your event? It will take no more than five minutes to fill the form and you will be invited to update the information later. Hence you do not need to have decided the fine details of your celebration.

We thank you in advance for your support. We hope to be able to show many pre-announcements all over the world at the time of the 40th General Conference of UNESCO (12–27 November 2019) when the vote will be taken to proclaim the International Day of Mathematics.

Best regards,
Christiane Rousseau
