of the Royal Spanish
Mathematical Society

The Royal Spanish Mathematical Society reached its centenary in 2011 as a modern and active society working to support Spanish mathematicians in their efforts to improve research, education at all levels, the range of applications, public esteem and recognition from institutions.

The conferences, exhibitions, debates and other events celebrated throughout our country on this occasion served to recognise to all those who made possible our first hundred years of history, and to reflect on the challenges we will face in the next century. Its more than 1700 members, belonging to all realms of learning and of the mathematical profession, invite you to join us as a member and help build the future of the RSME.

The Royal Spanish Mathematical Society commemorated in 2011 the centennial of its founding. In these hundred years the work developed by the RSME has been of great importance as a link between members of our community. It has promoted scientific meetings, journals and relationships with other domestic and foreign companies pursuing similar purposes.

One of the key objectives of the RSME has been to encourage the contact between the secondary education, universities and society in general. In this spirit, a comprehensive program of events wad designed to be held throughout the year and throughout the country.

The centenary year held its opening ceremony on January 20.

The RSME Biennial Congress, the main event of the centennial, took place in February. Young researchers and university students in mathematics held their specific conferences in Soria and La Laguna (Tenerife).

The name of Scientific Days groups a series of short conferences that showed a variety of fields where Spanish mathematicians are relevant.

There were ten colloquia as well, events aimed at students and people interested in mathematics but not involved in research.


The exhibition RSME-Imaginary will visit fourteen cities all over Spain with images, pictures, videos, interactive workshops...

All these events will extend even beyond the formal closing ceremony, held in the Senate of Spain on November 29.
