Founded in 1888 to further Mathematical Research and Scholarship, the

__American Mathematical Society__fulfills its mission through programs and services that promote Mathematical Research and its uses, strengthen Mathematical Education, and foster awareness and appreciation of Mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and to everyday life.

__The Society__has nearly 30,000 individual members and 570 institutional members in the United States and around the world.

*Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, SIAM*

__http://www.siam.org/__

The

__Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM)__is an international community of close to 12,000 individual members, including Applied & Computational Mathematicians, Computer Scientists, and other Scientists & Engineers. Almost 500 academic, manufacturing, research and development, service and consulting organizations, government, and military organizations worldwide are institutional members.

__SIAM__advances the fields of Applied Mathematics and Computational Science by publishing a series of premier journals and a variety of books, sponsoring a wide selection of conferences, and through various other programs.

*American Institute of Mathematics, AIM*

__http://www.aimath.org/__

The

__American Institute of Mathematics (AIM)__, a nonprofit organization, was founded in 1994 by Silicon Valley businessmen John Fry and Steve Sorenson, longtime supporters of mathematical research. The goals of

__AIM__are to expand the frontiers of mathematical knowledge through focused research projects, through sponsored conferences, and through the development of an on-line mathematics library.

In addition,

__AIM__is interested in helping to preserve the history of Mathematics through the acquisition and preservation of rare mathematical books and documents and in making these materials available to scholars of Mathematical History.

*Mathematical Association of America, MAA*

__http://www.maa.org/__

The

__Mathematical Association of America (MAA)__is the largest professional society that focuses on mathematics accessible at the undergraduate level. Our members include university, college, and high school teachers; graduate and undergraduate students; pure and applied mathematicians; computer scientists; statisticians; and many others in academia, government, business, and industry. We welcome all who are interested in the Mathematical Sciences.

The mission of the

__MAA__is

*"To advance the Mathematical Sciences, especially at the Collegiate Level."*

*International Mathematical Union, IMU*

__http://www.mathunion.org/__

__IMU__is an international non-governmental and non-profit scientific organization, with the purpose of promoting international cooperation in Mathematics. It is a member of the

__International Council for Science (ICSU)__and has endorsed repeatedly

__ICSU__'s Principle of Freedom, Responsibility & Universality of Science.

The objectives of the

__International Mathematical Union (IMU)__are:

** To promote international cooperation in Mathematics.*

* To support and assist the International Congress of Mathematicians and other international scientific meetings or conferences.

* To encourage and support other international mathematical activities considered likely to contribute to the development of mathematical science in any of its aspects, pure, applied, or educational.

*International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, ICIAM*

__http://www.iciam.org/council/council_tf.html__

The

__International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM)__is a worldwide organisation for professional Applied Mathematics Societies, and for other societies with a significant interest in Industrial or Applied Mathematics. Until 1999 the Council was known as

*CICIAM*, an acronym for

*Committee for International Conferences on Industrial and Applied Mathematics*. The name change was intended to emphasise the wider aims of the developing organization.
