In 2011 CDC has also supported the Inter University Ibero-American Mathematics Competition (IMMC) which was held in Ecuador.
As an initiative from the European Mathematical Society Committee for Developing Countries (EMS-CDC), workshops have been initiated on the topic on how to find and access online information resources in mathematics. The aim of the workshops is that they should be as participatory as possible, and that hands-on experience is the key to learning and understanding.
So far four workshop have been held and were funded by the IMU and the European Mathematical Society in collaboration.
The first workshop was held at the mathematics department of Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia, October 19-21 and the second at the CIMPA School held in Bamako, Mali, November 20-21. The third was held at the Universidade Eduardo Mondlane, Maputo, Mocambique, June 6-10, 2011 and the forth was held jointed at the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport as well as RUPP, Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Aug 8-12, 2011.
Facilitator of both workshops was Anders Wändahl, librarian at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, as well as a member of the EMS-CDC.
All materials and hand-outs for the EMS-CDC workshops are available at a dedicated webpage where it can be freely downloaded and used. Please click here.
