To acquaint the mathematical community with the latest trends in mathematics, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th International Pure Mathematics Conferences were organized in Islamabad in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 respectively. The 21st IPMC 2020 was cancelled due to Covid-19. In order to join the ranks of advanced nations, an appropriate strong base in fundamental research in mathematics is a necessary impetus for economic growth, technological advancement and scientific activity. The primary aim of organizing such conferences is to enhance the understanding of the mathematics and to provide an opportunity to working mathematicians to exchange ideas with their colleagues at the national and international level. |

At the end of the conference, it was decided that the Pure Mathematics Conference should take place every year. Therefore, the 2nd Pure Mathematics Conference 2001, held in Islamabad from 8th to 9th August 2001, was again organised by Professor Qaiser Mushtaq and his research group with the help of the Pakistan Science Foundation and Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad. |
