Siyakhula: Growing Mathematics in Africa, 17-22 March 2024

AIMS is turning 20, the German Research Chairs in Africa are turning 10, and the (DST-NRF) Centre of Excellence in Mathematical and Statistical Sciences (CoE-MaSS) is turning 10!

We invite you to a week-long festival aimed at strengthening the mathematical sciences across Africa. We will celebrate Africa’s rich mathematical heritage and promote growth in scientific endeavours on home soil. Let’s make our roots strong and let’s grow!

The festival will bring together the African and international mathematical sciences community, including representatives from universities, research institutions, governments, the private sector, civil society organisations, and the general public. We will share discoveries, exchange ideas, examine and discuss pressing issues, and inspire and empower the next generation of mathematical scientists.
