The Mediterranean Institute for the Mathematical Sciences The MIMS has been founded in January of 2012, with its inaugural conference in October 2012. It is independent and non-profit. MIMS is located at the Cité des Sciences in Tunis. MIMS is a proud sponsor of GEOTOP2014
The multi-faceted mission of this institute is to: Be a rallying point for the growing community of mathematicians in Tunisia, and both the MENA and the Mediterranean regions. Provide a unique and engaging environment for mathematicians and for visiting scholars to collaborate and conduct research. Enrich mathematical education and raise public awareness of the mathematical sciences. Encourage interdisciplinary exploration in mathematics and science. Be the springboard for the young generation, making it easier for prospective students to connect to the vast world of mathematical research.
