Since 1986 the Mathematics section at ICTP has played an important role in fostering mathematics research and education in developing countries. Research is carried out in various fields of Mathematics by the permanent staff, postdocs, and graduate students, as well as by scientific visitors from all over the world.
Typically, the section organizes from 5 to 10 focused activities a year involving an average of 100 participants. These activities are the core of the section's activities and are crucial for disseminating current mathematics knowledge of the highest level as widely as possible.
In addition the Mathematics section, like all the other sections at ICTP, participates in the Diploma program. Since 2011 Diploma students can apply to stay on to work on a PhD in Mathematics in a joint program with SISSA.
The Mathematics section also offers opportunities for postdocs and research fellows; click here for latest announcements.
The ICTP Mathematics section maintains a Math Blog, where you can read the latest updates written by the section members.
Once a month, the section organises The Basic Notions Seminar Series to broaden the understanding of some mathematical concepts.
