New Online Hosting of Journals of NMS

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy, a leading global institution that has consistently built scientific capacities of developing countries by fostering the growth of advanced studies/research in physical/mathematical sciences has kindly supported the on-line hosting of the Journal of the Nigerian Mathematical Society. This will provide the journal with cost-effective and suitable alternatives to hosting with Elsevier. 

 

Our latest feat was a result of my recent visit to ICTP in June/July 2016 as a Visiting Scientist to the Mathematics section and the unquantifiable effort of Dr. Clement Onime of the Information and Communications Technology Section of ICTP. Our special thanks go to the Director, ICTP, Professor Fernando Quevedo for the endorsement of the Memoranda of Understanding without which we cannot go live on Open Journal System (OJS).  

 

Now the emblem of JNMS is on the OJS of ICTP and authors can now submit and upload their articles with ease  at: http://ojs.ictp.it/jnms/index.php/jnms/index

 

This is a new sunrise and exciting experience for the Editorial Board members, Associate Editors, reviewers and other users

Dear colleagues,

Thanks to a generous donation by the Simons Foundation, the Commission for Developing Countries of the International Mathematical Union is 

launching the IMU-Simons African Fellowship Program to support research visits of 

mathematicians living and working in developing countries in Africa.

The grant covers travel, accommodation, visa, travel insurance and living costs up to USD 5,000 per mathematician. 

The duration of the visit should be of a reasonable length of time to allow fruitful interaction. 

In particular, the minimal length of a visit is one month.

Interested mathematicians must hold a valid doctoral degree and must be employed as a faculty member of a university or

equivalent institution in a developing country in Africa. 

For a list of applicable countries, further requirements and the online application form please go here:

Deadlines:

November 1, 2016 (Decisions will be made by December 15, 2016) for visits starting between in January 2017 and January 2018
