Black Heroes of Mathematics conference 2023

Tuesday 3rd - Wednesday 4rd October

The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS), British Society for the History of Mathematics (BSHM), ICTP-East African Institute for Fundamental Research (ICTP-EAIFR), Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS), Isaac Newton Institute (INI), London Mathematical Society (LMS) and Mathematical Association (MA) are holding a two day conference on Black Heroes of Mathematics.


The Vision of the conference is ‘To celebrate the inspirational contributions of black role models to the field of Mathematics and Mathematics Education’. There will be a balance of technical talks by internationally renowned black speakers that include some detail of career paths and experience to provide a testimonial dimension.

We plan to achieve a balance of career stage and gender.
ZOOM Webinar will be used to host this online event.
