The 6th International Pure Mathematics Conference 2005 was held from 20th to 22nd August 2005 in Islamabad. Its theme was Algebra, Analysis, Geometry and Mechanics. It was for the first time in the history of mathematics in Pakistan that so many eminent mathematicians congregated in Pakistan. Twenty well known mathematicians from 18 countries, including the US, China, India, Japan, Canada, Italy, Iran, and Turkey attended the conference.
The twenty invited speakers who attended the conference were Professor Melvin Henriksen (USA), Professor Robert Redfield (USA), Professor S.T. Rizvi (USA), Dr. Mohammad Saleem (USA), Professor Yuqun Chen (China), Professor Nanqing Ding (China), Professor M. Diker (Turkey), Professor Alberto Facchini (Italy), Professor Mikio Kano (Japan), Dr. Ali Reza Moghaddamfar (Iran), Professor B. K. Dass (India), Professor P. K. Jain (India), Dr. S.M. Khairnar (India), Professor Vilas S. Kharat (India), Professor I.B.S. Passi (India), Professor Dipendra Prasad (India), Professor Shashirekha B. Rai (India), Professor Anant Wasudeo Vyawahare (India), Professor Richard Wiegandt (Hungary), and Professor Narain Datt Gupta FRSC (Canada). There were nine keynote speakers, each being allotted forty minutes, and fifty short communications, each of 20 minutes. Over 180 people applied to attend the conference, and 96 attended the conference. The lectures topics covered the main four branches of pure and applied mathematics, namely, algebra, analysis, geometry and mechanics.
The conference provided a novel opportunity for researchers to meet and share their work. Many Ph.D. and M.Phil. students also attended the conference in order to update themselves to a level that is required to do original and better research.
The speakers consisted of experienced and reputable mathematicians working both outside and within the country. The conference also provided an opportunity to develop collaboration in research between various mathematicians from different institutions and mathematical areas.
Inaugural Session
A simple one-hour inaugural session was arranged on the first day of the 6th International Pure Mathematics Conference. Some 160 invited guests attended the inaugural session. Professor Dr Atta ur Rahaman, Chairman, Higher Education Commission, was the chief guest.
The inaugural session was simple and sombre. Professor B.A.Saleemi, President, Pakistan Mathematical Society, the Convener, Professor Dr Qaiser Mushtaq, and the Chief Guest delivered short speeches. Professor Dr Qaiser Mushtaq, the founding convener of the series of International Pure Mathematics Conferences, which are held in Islamabad every August, explained the history of the IPMC and highlighted its benefits especially to the young mathematical community of Pakistan and the role these conferences are playing in bringing Pakistan into the limelight of the international community of mathematicians.
Proceedings
The proceedings of the conference spread over three days. On the first day there ware the inaugural session, registration, three keynote lectures, and two parallel sessions each comprising five lectures. In the evening, from about 5.10 to 8.00, there was a sightseeing tour.
On the second day, there were three keynote lectures and two parallel sessions each comprising eleven lectures. In the evening, from 5.10 to 8.00, there was again a sight seeing tour. After that there was a conference dinner which was served, courtesy of the Riphah International University, Islamabad. The Vice Chancellor, Professor Dr Mohsin Ahmad, personally welcomed the guests.
On the third day, there were three keynote lectures and two parallel sessions each comprising nine lectures.
Every day, tea was served twice as well as lunch. Amongst the places which the participants were taken on the sight-seeing tours include Faisal Mosque, Quaid-i-Azam University, Shaker Parian, Constitution Avenue, Folk Heritage Museum, and Taxila. In addition to the conference dinner at Riphah International University, speakers were also served dinners at Holiday Inn, Best Western and Wang Fu.
Business/Discussion Session
The last session was devoted to the discussion on the state of mathematics in Pakistan. Professor Y.Q.Chen (PRC), Professor M.Diker (Turkey), Professor Q.Ding (PRC), Professor Alberto Facchini (Italy), Professor Henrikson (USA), Professor M.Kano (Japan), Dr A.R.Moghaddamfar (Iran), Professor I.B.Passi (India) and Professor Qaiser Mushtaq appreciated the quality of the papers read at the conference. They expressed their thanks also for the warm hospitality. They were of the view that this useful activity had introduced Pakistan very well to the global mathematical community. Further, it was unanimously resolved that there was a dire need to uplift mathematics in Pakistan. The research, teaching and curriculum of mathematics needed to be improved and the government needed to be urged to take serious note of the state of mathematics. In the end, it was decided that the 7th International Pure Mathematics Conference 2006 would be held in Islamabad in August 2006.
The conference was given national and international publicity. A colourful poster was sent to the Vice Chancellors and Registrars of all the universities in Pakistan. Invitation cards were also sent to the members of the Pakistan Mathematical Society and prominent scientists for participation. The conference was advertised through the Website http://www.pmc.org.pk. HEC published information of the conference in its newsletter and displayed in its website the conference poster along with the web connection. The homepage of Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad, advertised the conference and displayed the web connection.

1st Pure Mathematics Conference 2000
8th August 2000
Islamabad, Pakistan
Picture Gallery
It was the first time that the algebra group in the department of mathematics at Quaid-i-Azam University felt that there was a need to stimulate and enhance research in pure mathematics in particular and mathematics in general in Pakistan. A good number of pure mathematicians had shown interest in holding a mathematical activity such as this. Thus a number of senior Pakistani mathematicians were consulted and their approval was sought to deliver lectures on the latest research trends in their fields of interest in the eventuality of holding such a mathematical activity. It was in this spirit that the 1st Pure Mathematics Conference 2000 (1st PMC 2000), held in Islamabad on 8th August 2000, was organised by Professor Qaiser Mushtaq and his group with the help of Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad.
Around 50 mathematicians from different universities and colleges of Pakistan participated in it. The following mathematicians gave lectures.
1. Prof. H. Azad
2. Dr. L.A. Khan
3. Dr. N. Muhammad
4. Prof. Q. Mushtaq
5. Prof. B.A. Saleemi
