African Mathematical Schools

CIMPA is supporting African Mathematical Schools (EMA) of the African Mathematical Union (AMU). The duration of an EMA is beetween 2 and 4 weeks. Their main objectives are:

  • To provide Master students or early PhD students with the mathematical foundations and essential tools of selected active areas of mathematics.
  • To contribute to the development of mathematics in all regions of the African continent by promoting the exchange of knowledge between young African mathematicians and the international mathematical community.
  • To break the isolation of African mathematicians by providing a platform for meeting fellow mathematicians from around the world, for exchanging knowledge and for sharing experience.

A call for application is published every year in early summer for the organisation of EMA the following year. Proposals are evaluated by an UMA-CIMPA common scientific committee.
