Academic Activities


Every year the Chinese Mathematical Society organizes varieties of conferences, workshops and seminars, which attract numerous participants and provide stages for mathematical researchers to conduct academic exchanges.


The year 1985 witnessed the first commemorative activity of the Chinese Mathematical Society ever since its set up, when the 50th anniversary conference of Chinese Mathematical Society was held in December in Shanghai. ZHOU Peiyuan and ZHOU Guangzhao presented the conference and gave speeches. CHERN Shiing-shen delivered a conference lecture. As representatives of ten mathematical societies, fifteen foreign mathematicians including H. Cartan were invited to attend the conference. Ten years later, in May of 1995, the Chinese Mathematical Society held “The 7th General Assembly of CMS and its 60th Anniversary Conference” in Beijing. ZHU Guangya and LU Yongxiang presented. CHERN Shiing-shen and YAU Shing-tung delivered conference speeches.


The year 2005 marks the 70th anniversary of the Chinese Mathematical Society and the celebrating conference with the theme “Mathematics 2005:; Opportunity and Challenge” was held in Weihai, Shandong in July 25-29. More than 400 mathematicians from China and abroad attended the conferences including John M. BALL, the president of International Mathematical Union. Nine plenary talks were given by nine world wide famous mathematicians including Noga Alon, Martin Groetschel, Efim I Zelmanov, John Ball, Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, Nick KATZ, YAU Shing-tung, SIU Yum-Tong, and TIAN Gang.
