Candidacy for Membership and Associate Membership
Instructions for a country that wishes to become a member of IMU:
A country interested in becoming a Member of the International
Mathematical Union, should send to the
Secretary of IMU a sample of its
activities in mathematics, especially concerning research, as well as a
sample of research papers published in international
journals by its
mathematicians in the last 10 years or so. The Secretary of IMU
will then present the case to the Executive Committee, that will
make a recommendation to the members of the Union by Postal Ballot or at a
meeting of the General Assembly for a final decision.
A country interested in becoming an Associate Member of the International
Mathematical Union, should contact the
Secretary of IMU
for information about the application procedure.
IMU has five groups of membership. Membership in group
I provides I vote in the General
Assembly. The dues increase nonlinear with the group
number. For instance, the dues for group V are twelve
times the dues for group I. The Statutes describe
this more formally. The adherence of a country is
in one of the five groups I-V with corresponding voting
powers and contributions as set out in the Statutes.
A country may change its classification with the
approval of the members of the Union upon recommendation
of the Executive Committee.
The current dues are as follows:
