The CIEM was created in January 2006. In our first three years we have hosted more than 30 events with about 2000 participants. See the full list of events in the "Activities" menu.
CIEM has been one of the nodes of the i-Math
project since its orgins in October 2006. i-Math is a Spanish-wide mathematics project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation via the Ingenio 2010 - Consolider program
, and has more than 1500 members.
Since May 2009, the CIEM is also the physical site of the GeoGebra Institute of Cantabria
, and hosts the regular meetings and courses organized by it.
CIEM's main objective is to promote quality mathematical research, both basic, applied and computacional, taking special care to multi and pluridisciplinar aspects, by organizing and supporting conferences, workshops, advanced courses and research meetings.
We hope to become un international agent promoting and hosting mathematical events of highest quality.
All individuals and groups insterested in organizing an event can ask for us to allocate it. We offer our resources (lecture room for 100 people, smaller meeting rooms, internet wifi, computer room) plus logistic and monetary support for the organization, accomodation, etc. The candidate events must meet the following requirements:
• They have to be thematically related to mathematics or close fields (computer science, theoretical physics) and their quality be guaranteed by a scientific and/or organizing committee.
• Their length should preferably be one week (monday to friday), but three day meetings and, exceptionally, two-week meetings are also allowed.
