The Irish Mathematical Society aims to further Mathematics and Mathematical research in Ireland. Its membership is international, but it mainly represents mathematicians in Universities and other third level institutes in Ireland.
The Society publishes a Bulletin twice per year (July and December approximately).
The IMS runs an annual conference in September, both devoted to mathematical topics from current research to educational issues.
The Society has a sub-committee to discuss issues and formulate positions concerning Mathematics education.
Reciprocity agreements are in place between the IMS and a number of other mathematical societies.
The Society is a member of the European Mathematical Society.
Conference support grants
The IMS Committee provides financial assistance to the cost of running conferences and meetings of a mathematical nature, within its means. Applications for support are made via the Treasurer. See this list of recent grants approved and guidelines for applications available here.
The Fergus Gaines Cup is awarded annually by the Society to the best performer in the Irish Mathematical Olympiad (IrMO).
