Full Abstract Booklet

The panel was organized by the CDC, coordinated by CDC Secretary for Policy Olga Gil Medrano, and made possible with the technical and organisational support of the IMU Project Assistant Vanessa Chung.

The CDC was pleased to host you at the panel and to learn about the challenges of mathematicians and institutions in developing countries, and the initiatives and programs of various organizations to promote international cooperation despite challenges in global mobility, in particular how communication technology can be harnessed to reach mathematicians all over the world together.
