Prize "Ibni Oumar Mahamat Saleh"

  The Prize "Ibni Oumar Mahamat Saleh" has been created in memory of our colleague and to continue its commitment to Mathematics in Africa. From 2018 on, the prize is awarded every two years to a young mathematician from Central Africa or West Africa. Applications are evaluated by a scientific committee. 


The prize is funded by a subscription.

The prize has received the support of the IMU (International Mathematical Union), the AMU (African Mathematical Union), the LMS (London Mathematical Society), the SFdS (Société Française de Statistique), the SMAI (Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles), the SMF (Société Mathématique de France) and the CIMPA (Centre International de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées) as well as many donators.

More than 3500 people have signed the Petition on "Ibni Oumar Mahamat Saleh".
