CDC Panel Discussion and Poster Session during ICM 2018

The Commission for Developing Countries (CDC) is organizing a panel discussion and poster session on Strengthening Mathematics in the Developing World on Tuesday August 7, 2018 from 6 pm – 8 pm in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil during the ICM 2018.   

The session will be held in room 101 D.

 

 

18:00-19:15 Panel Discussion

The panel composition and structure as approved by the Local Organizing Committee of the ICM is:

 

Moderator:  IMU CDC (Angel Pineda)

Panelists:

  • IMU-CDC President (Wandera Ogana): Presenting IMU (CDC, ICMI, CEIC) Activities
  • IMU-CWM Chair (Marie-Françoise Roy): Presenting CWM Activities
  • Representative from Simons Foundation (Yuri Tschinkel): Funding Agency’s Perspective
  • Representative from Brazilian Mathematical Community (Paolo Piccione, President of the Brazilian Mathematical Society): Brazilian Activities
  • President of the Southeast Asian Mathematical Society (Jose Maria Balmaceda): Activities in Asia (will be asked to speak also of India & Central Asia)
  • President of the African Mathematical Union (Nouzha El Yacoubi): Activities in Africa
  • Secretary of UMALCA (Alejandro Jofre): Activities in Latin America

 

The goal of the panel is to share information about mathematical development activities with mathematicians at the ICM and to serve as a catalyst for interactions between mathematicians, organizations and funding agencies.

 

19:15-20:00 Poster Session

After the panel discussion there will be a poster session at which panelists and approx. 20 different organizations and institutions will present posters with more information about their development efforts and organizations.

The poster session will be 45 minutes long immediately following the panel discussion in large open area next to room 101 D.  The poster session is the last activity of that evening which means that conversations can extend beyond the 45 minutes in the schedule.  There will be open discussion with poster presenters and panelists. The goal of the poster session is to share information about mathematical development activities with mathematicians at the ICM and to serve as a catalyst for interactions between mathematicians, organizations and funding agencies, similar to the MENAO activities in Seoul in 2014.

The following organisations and institutions have been invited to participate in the poster session:
