CDC 2011–2014 Meetings


On January 31, 2011 the members of the CDC and other selected members met to discuss CDC issues and in particular the Donors Conference Workshop (later called "MENAO").

The second CDC Meeting was held March 9th-11th, 2013 also at the IMU Secretariat, in Berlin, Germany. In 2010 the 16th General Assembly of the International Mathematical Union, Bangalore, India, passed a resolution #6, to hold a “donors conference” at the next ICM. At the joint meeting of the CDC and the IMU EC in March 2013, IMU and CDC decided to hold the “Mathematics in Emerging Nations: Achievements and Opportunities” (MENAO) symposium on August 12, 2014 in Seoul, Korea, the day before the opening of ICM 2014. The MENAO symposium featured personal stories from a variety of mathematicians, country-specific development stories – both from the perspective of mathematicians in developing countries and from the perspective of their international partners – as well as an insight into the state of mathematics in Korea and its influence on economic development.
