INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE
INVITED SPEAKERS: Prospective Medallists; Established African Mathematicians in Europe and USA; Other Established Mathematicians.
The recently concluded International Congress of Mathematicians, ICM-2002 Beijing China, showed clearly that African mathematicians have a lot to do in order to make meaningful impact in terms of ICM general participation and World Mathematics Fields Medals Awards. I was also observed sadly enough that less than three percent of the participants in the ICM2002 are Africans. In order to promote the teaching, learning and research in all aspect of Mathematics among Africans, which will eventually enable African Mathematicians to make big impact on the world stage, the committee of African Mathematicians at Beijing 2002 decided to organise an International Conference of mathematical Sciences and the maiden Award of African Medals for Young African Mathematicians in 2003 at the University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Nigeria.
The award is open to ANY AFRICAN who has
The awards are likely going to be given in five broad areas ( i.e. all AMS subject classifications will be grouped into these five areas)(candidates should indicate in which subject area they wish to be considered;
