The CDC database of volunteers contains a list of mathematicians (worldwide) willing to volunteer and including the mathematician's curriculum vitae (CV), the areas of mathematics in which they are prepared to teach, language abilities and dates of availability.
In order to view the database you have to log into the IMU website.
If your institution is not registered on the IMU website, please register an account.

IMU/ CDC welcomes applications by universities and mathematics degree programs in the developing world that are in need of, and can provide the necessary conditions for productive collaboration in the teaching of advanced mathematics. We seek universities interested to host a lecturer for intensive 3-4 week mathematics courses, at the advanced undergraduate or master level. The course given by the volunteer should be part of a regular mathematics undergraduate or master degree program at the hosting university. Also courses for a degree of "Mathematics and Informatics” or similar are admissible. Unfortunately mathematics courses for an undergraduate or Master degree in Engineering or similar degrees are not permissible. The course should be in a field where the University has not the human resources to provide a good level of teaching of the course.
Costs of the lecturer (up to USD 5000 paid in EUR) will be covered by IMU/ CDC. The host university will have no financial obligations toward the lecturer.
Role and Requirements for the host university
The course should be
The host university is expected to assign a local mathematics professor who will
The Host Institution is also required to fill out a report form after the visit of the volunteer.
Who decides the course content?
The host university decides the course content and guides the volunteer towards desired syllabus.
Per approved course CDC can cover up to USD 5000 paid in EUR for the following cost of the Volunteer Lecturer:
However no salary is paid to the lecturer.
No assistant can be paid either.
All invoices (except for living expenses) have to be kept by the lecturer and be send (original) to the IMU Secretariat after the visit.
