Pure Mathematics Conferences: A Short History
The Islamia University of Bahawalpur
The Preston University
Objectives
To acquaint the mathematical community with the latest trends in mathematics, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th Pure Mathematics Conferences were organized in Islamabad in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 respectively. In order to join the ranks of advanced nations, an appropriate strong base in fundamental research in mathematics is a necessary impetus for economic growth, technological advancement and scientific activity. The primary aim of organizing such conferences is to enhance the understanding of the targeted subject and to provide an opportunity to working mathematicians to exchange ideas with their colleagues at the national and international level.
The 18th International Pure Mathematics Conference 2017 is a sequel of seventeen conferences which have been organized annually since 2000 in Islamabad. It will provide a stimulating opportunity to meet experts from various countries.
Pure Mathematics Conferences: A Short History
Research is a global activity and in order to keep abreast with the latest trends, one of the important steps is to arrange conferences at national and international levels that can provide impetus to our mathematicians for research in all areas of mathematics. In this way the innate talent in our mathematicians can be enhanced and the quality in research output can be improved considerably
It was in this spirit that the 1st Pure Mathematics Conference 2000 held in Islamabad on 8th August 2000, was organized by Professor Qaiser Mushtaq and his group with the help of Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad.
Without the encouragement and active participation of Pakistani mathematicians working abroad as expatriates, this activity would not have taken off so successfully.
At the end of the conference, it was decided that the Pure Mathematics Conference should take place every year. Therefore, the 2nd Pure Mathematics Conference 2001, held in Islamabad from 8th to 9th August 2001, was again organised by Professor Qaiser Mushtaq and his research group with the help of the Pakistan Science Foundation and Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad.
The 3rd Pure Mathematics Conference 2002 hosted by Allama Iqbal Open University, was a sequel to the previous Pure Mathematics Conferences. Allama Iqbal Open University Islamabad, Pakistan Science Foundation and Pakistan Mathematical Society sponsored the Third Pure Mathematics Conference 2002.
The 4th International Pure Mathematics Conference 2003 was an international activity organized by the Department of Mathematics, Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad and the Pakistan Mathematical Society. It was co-sponsored by the Pakistan Science Foundation, Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited and COMSATS.
The 5th International Pure Mathematics Conference 2004 was a joint venture of Mathematics Department of Quaid-i-Azam University and Pakistan Mathematical Society and again the organizers were Professor Qaiser Mushtaq and his research group.
The 6th International Pure Mathematics Conference 2005 was a joint venture of Mathematics Department of Quaid-i-Azam University and Pakistan Mathematical Society and the organizers were Professor Qaiser Mushtaq and his research group.
The 7th International Pure Mathematics Conference 2006 was a joint venture of Mathematics Department of Quaid-i-Azam University and Pakistan Mathematical Society and the organizers were Professor Qaiser Mushtaq and his research group.
The 8th International Pure Mathematics Conference 2007 was  a joint venture of Mathematics Department of Quaid-i-Azam University and Pakistan Mathematical Society and the organizers were Professor Qaiser Mushtaq and his research group.

The Islamia University of Bahawalpur
Bahawalpur has always been a seat of higher learning. Uch Sharif (a nearby ancient town) had one of the largest universities in the world where scholars from all over the world used to come for studies. As a continuation of this tradition a religious University (Jamia Abbasia) was established in Bahawalpur in 1925, following the academic pursuits of Jamia Al-Azhar, Egypt. The renowned scholars spread the beacon of Islam by teaching Tafseer of Quran, Hadith, Fiqh, and History along with other contemporary subjects.
The sand dunes have been converted into well-built faculties, green lawns, hostels, residential colony, farms and orchards. It is known as Baghdad-ul-Jadeed Campus. The University was started with ten departments and now this number has increased to 45 offering 74 disciplines. Apart from conventional disciplines of Religious Affairs, Languages, Social and Basic Sciences; education is being imparted in the areas of Business Administration, Engineering, Agriculture, Veterinary Sciences, Computer, Law, Education, Fine Arts, Pharmacy, Life Sciences and Sports Sciences. The University values quality education rather than quantity. Towards achievement of this end a team of highly qualified and committed faculty members have been engaged. Moreover, research is being made corner stone of the educational philosophy.

In order to provide opportunities of higher education to the youth at their door step, two campuses were established at Rahim Yar Khan and Bahawalnagar in 2005. Initially, Departments of Management Sciences and Computer Science & Information Technology were established for which response was very encouraging. The number of Departments at Bahawalnagar and Rahim Yar Khan Campuses have been increased to seven and six, respectively.
