  • Date: 06/26/2008

The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences is pleased to announce that it has signed a collaborative agreement with the Chern Institute of Mathematics (CIM) at Nankai University in Tianjin, China. CIM was founded through the initiative of the late Professor S. S. Chern, who was also the first director of the Institute until 1992. The current director is Yiming Long, a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Cooperation between CIM and PIMS will take place through exchanges of scholars and students as well as by the organization of joint events. The agreement with CIM extends the network of mathematical institutes in the Pacific Rim which actively collaborate with PIMS, and colleagues at both institutions are looking forward to a very productive relationship.
