- The Tbilisi International Centre of Mathematics
and Informatics (later called "Centre") has been founded
under the aegis of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Georgia (later
"Academy"). Based in the I.Vekua Institute of Applied
Mathematics of I.Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University (later
"Institute") it is supported by the Georgian Mathematical
Union and the European Mathematical Society.
- The aims of the Centre are, first, to help
young scientists of the countries of the Black Sea Basin, to improve
their professional skills and, second, to promote the exchange of
scientific information worldwide. This will be achieved by Lecture
Series and Summer Schools devoted to topics determined by the
immediate interests of the Centre.
- The work of the Centre is guided by an
International Scientific Committee (later called "Committee"),
consisting of seven persons. Four are elected for a period of four
years by the Scientific Council of the Institute; they represent
different interests and at least one amongst them is a member of the
Institute. Their candidatures are approved by the Presidium of the
Georgian Mathematical Union and by the Department of Mathematics and
Informatics of the Academy. The three others are appointed for the
same period by the Executive Committee of the European Mathematical
- The Committee constructs long-term and annual
plans for the Centre. It identifies themes, selects lecturers,
compiles lists of participants and decides on the awarding of grants
(up to 20 per cent of participants), and discusses current problems.
- The Committee meets as often as is necessary
to deal with the relevant business placed before it. A Committee
decision requires a vote of approval from at least four members of
- The Committee has the Chairman whose
candidature is approved by the Presidium of the Academy on the
recommendation of the Director of the Institute.
- The Chairman of the Committee, working within
the decisions of the Committee directs the work of the Centre. He is
supported by business manager and technical secretary, both chosen
from amongst the Institute members.
- The Committee is accountable to the Presidium
of the Academy. It is required to provide annually report of its work
to the Georgian Mathematical Union and Europian Mathematical Society.
- The Centre is not an autonomous unit within the
Institute. Its Interests are governed and protected by the Institute
- The financial activities of the Centre are
controlled by the Finance Office of the Institute.
