Mims at a glance
The Mediterranean Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (MIMS) has been founded in January 2012 by a group of mathematical professionals in Tunisia. Its mandate is to promote research in and applications of the mathematical sciences regionally and internationally, to facilitate the training of highly qualified personnel, to enrich public awareness of and education in the mathematical sciences, and to setup partnerships with similar organizations around the Mediterranean, in Africa and around the World.
MIMS is an institutional partner of the Southern Mediterranean University (SMU, Tunisia).
The African mathematical community, particularly in North Africa, is growing and consolidating by the day. With the relatively recent creation of sister mathematical centers (CAMS of Lebanon, and AIMS of South-Africa) , the mathematical community south of the Mediterranean is making strides in bridging the gap with the rest of the advanced world. MIMS is the first Institute of its kind in North-Africa. Established in Tunisia, a country with mathematical traditions, a strong (French-based) educational system and a growing community of mathematicians scattered around the world, MIMS aims at bringing this community together and at offering them and to their respected collaborators and guests, a serene and inspiring place to do mathematical research, to discuss mathematical ideas and to organize joint events.
MIMS Inaugural Conference
The MIMS inaugural conference took place at the Cité des Sciences in Tunis on October 30, 2012, in the presence of more than 200 participants. We were honored by the presence of sir Michael Atiyah, a great figure of 20th century mathematics and a special guest of MIMS, who gave a beautiful conference on "Beauty and Truth in Mathematics".
