Cyprus Mathematical Society is a non-profit organization established in Cyprus since 1983. Its purpose is to promote Mathematics Education and Science. CY.M.S. activities include the organization of all national mathematics competitions and forming the national teams that represent Cyprus in international Olympiads including competitions such as the Cyprus Math Olympiad, the Mathematics Relay competitions and the Mathematics Article competition for school students.
Other activities include the annual conference on Mathematics Science and Education, the annual Student Mathematics Conference, International Mathematics Conferences such as the EUROMATH and a Summer Mathematics School.
Since 2002 Cyprus Mathematical Society publishes the scientific journal Mediterranean Journal for Research in Mathematics Education. Other publications include an annual periodical called Mathematiko Vema.
CYMS is governed by a 19 member Council, made up by mathematicians. Its expertise through its members and activities include all levels of mathematics science and education. It is also very active with European Funded Projects and is offering KA1 training courses in cooperation with other organizations.
The Cyprus Mathematical Society in its aim to play an important role in the advancement and development of Mathematics Education in the Mediterranean Region and beyond started in 2002 publishing the scientific journal titled Mediterranean Journal for Research in Mathematics Education.
This Journal is the result of the two successful Mediterranean Conferences on Mathematics Education that took place in 1997 and 2000 in Cyprus. Through these Conferences a large community of academics was formed and became the back-bone for the international establishment of the periodic series of the Mediterranean Journal for Research in Mathematics Education. These academics then started working as the reviewers of the scientific manuscripts submitted for publication for the Mediterranean Journal for Research in Mathematics Education.
The Journal is been published in one volume per year in either one or two issues. The Editor-in-Chief is Prof. Gregory Makrides, President of the Cyprus Mathematical Society.
The International Critics Body of the Journal includes important academics from Cyprus, Belgium, Greece, Bulgaria, France, United Kingdom, Germany, Czech Republic, Canada, Italy and Israel.
