About AMU & PACOM

The African Mathematical Union (AMU) was founded during the first Pan African Congress of Mathematicians, held in Rabat, Morocco in July 1976.

** In 1978**, the AMU Executive Committee created the AMU Journal: Afrika Matematika, initially with the aim to make mathematical research originating within Africa more widely known.

**Since 2011**, Afrika Matematika has been published by Springer. The submission rate has been growing since that date and it has truly increased in the last couple of years.

** Since 2013**, the improved status of the journal was evidenced by the fact that it has been listed by Scopus, and has been on the Master Journal List of the Web of Science Group,

**Since 2018** Afrika Matematika is in the Emerging Sources Citation Index.

** I****n January 2020**: for the first time PACOM 2017 Proceedings have been published in a special issue of Afrika Matematika by Springer.

2. For Pan African Mathematics Olympiads

3. For History of Mathematics in Africa

4. For African Women in Mathematics

**The more important AMU scientific event is : The Pan African Congress of Mathematicians (PACOM) **

Supposed to be organized each 4 four years. Till now 9 editions have been organized. During the period 1976-1986, no Congress has been organized. The second edition of PACOM was held in Jose, Nigeria in 1986, the 3th in Nairobi, Kenya in 1991, the 4th in Ifrane, Morocco in 1995, the 5th in Cape Town, South Africa in 2000, the 6th in Tunis, Tunisia in 2004, the 7th in Yamoussoukro, Côte d’Ivoire in 2009, the 8th in Abuja , Nigeria in 2013 and the 9th in Rabat, Morocco in July 2017 at the Sciences Faculty of Rabat from 3 to 7 july 2017.

The 10th edition (PACOM 2021) is hosted by the Republic of Congo in Brazzaville from 2-7 August 2021. It is organized by AMU in collaboration with the Ministry of Higher Education of the Republic of Congo.

The AMU General Assembly will be held on 1st August 2021.

The African Mathematical Union (AMU) was founded during the first Pan African Congress of Mathematicians, held in Rabat, Morocco in July 1976.

**With mission**:

**For the achievement of such mission the following actions have been undertaken:**

**In 1986, four AMU Commissions were established**:

2. For Pan African Mathematics Olympiads

3. For History of Mathematics in Africa

4. For African Women in Mathematics

**In 2009**, the AMU Commission for Research and Innovation in Mathematical Sciences was added.

Supposed to be organized each 4 four years. Till now 9 editions have been organized. During the period 1976-1986, no Congress has been organized. The second edition of PACOM was held in Jose, Nigeria in 1986, the 3th in Nairobi, Kenya in 1991, the 4th in Ifrane, Morocco in 1995, the 5th in Cape Town, South Africa in 2000, the 6th in Tunis, Tunisia in 2004, the 7th in Yamoussoukro, Côte d’Ivoire in 2009, the 8th in Abuja , Nigeria in 2013 and the 9th in Rabat, Morocco in July 2017 at the Sciences Faculty of Rabat from 3 to 7 july 2017.

The 10th edition (PACOM 2021) is hosted by the Republic of Congo in Brazzaville from 2-7 August 2021. It is organized by AMU in collaboration with the Ministry of Higher Education of the Republic of Congo.

The AMU General Assembly will be held on 1st August 2021.

- AMU trough its various commissions, is organizing various Mathematical activities: colloquia, symposia, workshops, African Mathematical Schools in diverse mathematics areas; Training schools for graduate students, Pan African Mathematics Olympiads (PAMO), training sessions for PAMO Team leaders (PAMOSTAR), training camps for students etc….Amoung the activities of the AMU commissions, we can quote:
**PAMO**: Till now 27 editions of Pan African Mathematics Olympiad took place in various African countries. The last one “PAMO 2019” was hosted by South Africa, Morocco was the winner of the PAMO 2019 Gold Medal. PAMO 2020 planned to be hosted by Tunisia in March 2020, has been postponed due to the pandemic of COVID-19.**PAMS**: The AMU Commission on Mathematics Education (AMU-CMEA), has organized various activities since 1992, and since 2006, the AMU-CMEA has launched the Pan African Mathematical Space (PAMS) , the two first editions have been hosted by Tunisia in 2006 and 2008, and more later, the 3rd Pan African Mathematical space “PAMES 2019” has been hosted by the Republic of Angola, organized in collaboration with, and under the auspices of, the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Technology and Innovation with theme: “Professional development of Mathematics Teachers in Africa”.**Symposia on African women in Mathematics**: since 2008, AMU through its commission AMU-CAWM, is organizing regularly such symposia :in 2008 in Maputo (Mozambique), in 2012 in Ouaga (Burkina Faso), in 2013 in Cape Town (South Africa, in 2015, in Nairobi (Kenya), in 2017, in Rabat (Morocco), in 2018, in Palapaye (Botswana).**AMS : African Mathematical Schools**, are organized regularly, since 2010, in various African countries, par the African mathematicians, under the leadership of AMU and CIMPA (International Centre for Pure and Applied Mathematics). The AMS selected to be organized in 2020 have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.- Over the years, and since its creation, AMU has collaborated with several International Mathematical Unions, Socieies, Associations, departments, Centres, Networks, NGOs etc …. As well as with international organisations.
- The current determination of AMU is to be :
- Innovative : by developing mathematics that can impact critical sectors of the economy, in particular the Business and Industry world .
- Collaborative, by organizing scienctific events with other international organisations concerned pursuing the same objectives.
- federator of all the African associations, Societies , NGO etc.., with a full input and commitment

One of the aims of the PACOMs is to gather mathematicians from all over the world among the presenters as well as among the general participants, and particularly many from Africa. In order to achieve this goal, AMU has instigated a general policy of established a solidarity fund by setting a part of the registration fees, and applying for financial support from some international institutions and sponsors, in order to be able to offer support, for some African participants across the African continent, who may not be able to secure support elsewhere. A “PACOM 2021 Grants selection Committee”, appointed by AMU will distribute the grants from the Solidarity Fund amongst the successful applicants. Priority will be given to young African mathematicians and African women mathematicians, who contribute to the scientific programs. Grants will be given mainly as partial or full support to registration fee, accommodation, and travel costs. All potential applicants are advised to apply for funding from other sources as well. Participants who consider themselves eligible for grants are encouraged to apply for the grant . The Application form is available in the PACOM 2021 Website Interested participants are asked to apply till now . The deadline for application has been extended to 28 February 2021. It is necessary to include the following details in the application for grant: Basic personal information (full name, postal and e-mail addresses); Current institution; academic position; country/region; contribution in the scientific program; Paper or poster submitted; Academic CV; List of publications; Current financial situation; a recommendation letter by PhD-supervisor for the PHD students.
