5th World Conference on 21st Century Mathematics 2011
Pakistan is a developing nation very much in need of well prepared mathematicians for its universities, colleges and schools. During the past 7 years, the Abdus Salam School of Mathematical Sciences (ASSMS) with the help of Pakistani mathematical community has made very concrete efforts to meet this need. As a result of some of these efforts, the ASSMS has been successful in creating a PhD program that enrolled 139 full time PhD students, 47 have already completed their PhD degree. Several other universities in Pakistan also have PhD programs in mathematics, although of smaller size.
The 5th World Conference on 21st Century Mathematics 2011 is being organized to:
Provide an opportunity to young mathematics scholars to interact with well known mathematicians from abroad. Such an interaction will broaden their research horizon and will introduce them to new problems that they can work on.
Provide a platform to the mathematicians from all over the world to exchange ideas about mathematics education and research. Such an interaction can lead to fruitful long term collaborations which will be beneficial for the development of mathematics in Pakistan and neighbouring nations in the region.
This conference is being held under the auspices of the European Mathematical Society (EMS), International Mathematical Union (IMU), The Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), National Center for Mathematics (NCM)and Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistan. About 400 participants including 45-50 foreign speakers are expected to attend the conference
