Season greeting message from the AMU President

I am pleased to express here all of you, my best wishes for the new year 2021, with my deep hope that the pandemic COVID 19 could be brought under control in 2021 and that we can resume our activities as in the past. Awaiting that, I am encouraging all of you to hold conferences, meetings, etc... and keep in touch virtually .
We should be optimist, to be able to maintien the 10th Pan African Congress of Mathematicians (PACOM 2021), scheduled to be held in Brazzaville, Congo, from 2nd to 7th August 2021, with the AMU General Assembly in 1st August 2021, and we will be really happy to have many colleagues from Africa and from over the world among us, to contribute in the scientific program for a real success of that more important mathematical event for our continent Africa.Please visit the PACOM 2021 Website at: pacom2021 and the AMU website: africamathunion, we will appreciate that you register, submit your abstract and apply for grant if needed. The deadline for the the abstract submission has been extended to 28th February 2021 (see the attached poste).Please be free to contact us for any needed assistance.
Now let me remind you that the deadline of nomination for the AMU -PACOM 2021 Awards and Medals is 26th February 2021. The nomination document and application form are available in both AMU website and PAMO 2021 website.
Also, I would like to seize this opportunity to invite all of you to join AMU, as individual or legal member ( in the case if you are in charge or a mathematical society , association, Ngo, department in your country), and of course, as associate individual and legal members to join AMU.
To end,ICM 2022, the Internationale congress of Mathematicians will be held in St Petersburg from 6th to 14th July 2022. I encourage you to apply for grants , to be able to attend that important congress.
With best regards
Prof Nouzha El Yacoubi
