History of the PakMS

On 15th May 2001, Professor Qaiser Mushtaq convened a Mathematicians Moot at the Best Western Hotel in Islamabad, Pakistan. The gathering was attended by close to 70 professionals and students of Mathematics. The Moot was concerned with the poor state of mathematics education in Pakistan, and the lack of interest in its development at the governmental and private level. Hence, at the end of the Moot, it was decided that the Pakistan Mathematical Society should be formed.

On 26th June 2001, the Pakistan Mathematical Society (PakMS) came into being. At a function held at the Allama Iqbal Open University, Islamabad, the constitution of the society was passed, officers and executive members were elected. Since then, there has been increase in its membership. Its members hail from across the country. So far it has more than 250 members which make it the largest mathematical society in Pakistan.
