Organized by the Association for the Promotion of Science in Africa (APSA), the conference will support the newly-created African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) in Senegal, which will welcome its first students in September 2011.

AIMS was initially founded in South Africa, in 2003, as a pan-African centre for post-graduate training and research. It is hoped that this initiative will lead to the creation of other AIMS institutes in the region.
