The Southeast Asian Mathematical Society seeks to encourage the advancement of mathematics and facilitate exchange and partnership between mathematicians in the Southeast Asian region, and Asia in general. It is composed of the members of mathematical societies in Southeast Asia.
SEAMS was established in 1972, the result of a Southeast Asian tour by our founding president Wong Yung Chow of the University of Hong Kong. With the support of mathematicians in the region, the inauguration conference was held in July 1972 in Singapore. Over the years, exchanges and collaboration were fostered mathematical societies were established and strengthened.
The facilitation of mathematical exchanges led to regional conferences on mathematics and mathematics teaching. Among the sequence of conferences initiated by SEAMS was the Southeast Asian Conference on Mathematics Education which began in 1978 and was held every three years until 1999. SEACME has since then mingled with one more outcomes of regional exchanges, the East Asia Regional Conference on Mathematics Education.Read More»
