Karen Hunger Parshall (Chair) and Elena Ausejo (Secretary)
In 2007, the International Commission for the History of Mathematics (ICHM) has continued to pursue its dual aims of encouraging the study of the history of mathematics and of promoting a high level of historically and mathematically sophisticated scholarship in the field internationally. It has done so in the following ways:
Thus far this year, the EC has had three of its four annual e-meetings (the fourth, as per our rules of governance, is scheduled for December). Among the business discussed and the issues considered were: the election of a new national representative from Japan on the EC; the best ways to use the ICHM's limited resources in support of activities in the history of mathematics internationally; the redesign of the ICHM's webpages (see the section on "Projects" below); and consideration of a series of proposals for ICHM co-sponsored events internationally (see the next section).
In 2007, the ICHM has or will have co-sponsored the following eight events internationally:
For the full reports on those meetings that have already concluded, see the ICHM's webpages.
