The International Commission on the History of Mathematics is an inter-union commission joining the International Mathematical Union and the Division of the History of Science (DHS) of the International Union for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (IUHPST). The ICHM has the following international aims:
(a) to encourage the study of the history of mathematics; and
(b) to promote a high level of historically and mathematically sophisticated scholarship in the field.
The IMU participates in the ICHM activities via appointing two IMU representatives as members of the ICHM Executive Committee.
