For the past several years, mathematicians have contemplated a coordinated effort to digitize the past mathematical literature in order to make it available online. The aim is to make as much of the past literature available as possible, linked to the present literature in suitable ways.

(As approved by the IMU Executive Committee, Gyeongju, 2014 and announced at the IMU General Assembly, Gyeongju, on August 10, 2014.)

The CEIC is a standing committee of the Executive Committee (EC) of the International Mathematical Union, reviewed every four years by the EC at its meeting preceding that of the IMU General Assembly.

Members are appointed in even-numbered years for staggered four year terms, normally commencing on January 1 of the following year, using criteria similar to those for IMU Commissions.
