Despite the international nature of its position and role, ICMI has from time to time lent its name to a variety of regional conferences on mathematics education, primarily in less affluent parts of the world. A number of so-called ICMI Regional Conferences have thus been held over the years. On certain conditions (presented in the 1992-1996 ICMI Report of Activities), organizers may apply for the ICMI sponsorship of their conference. Normally such a sponsorship is of a moral rather than of a financial nature. To the extent ICMI provides financial sponsorship as well (which can only happen with conferences held in non-affluent countries), the funding is merely symbolical.
