The National Mathematical Centre (NMC) was established by ACT, CAP N58, 2004, to among others, train and develop high level of personnel in Mathematical Sciences, create a resource centre to serve National and International communities as a focal point for advanced research and training in mathematical Sciences and applications. The Centre is also mandated to identify and encourage young talents, stimulate enthusiasm among young Nigerian students and attract distinguished mathematical scientists, from all over the world, to enable it tackle national set goals in the development of mathematical sciences. Some of the programmes the centre organises include:
• Mathematics Programme
• Theoretical Physics Programme
• Statistics Programme
• Computer Science Programme
• Mathematical Sciences Education Programme
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: The conference will prove invaluable to those in the STEM industry. The Mathematics community seems to be a thriving one in Nigeria. Despite the low funding from the Federal Government, the National Mathematical Centre periodically organises competitions across all levels of education in the country. So, if you are a scientist, technologist, an engineer, a mathematician or just a lover of mathematics. Then, this conference is for you. The interesting part of the conference is that according to the centre’s website, the conference comes at zero cost to the attendees.
