AIMS is the main African research institute for Mathematics. The research area of the chairman Professor Foupouagniagni is computational mathematics, in particular symbolic computation and mathematical software. He will speak about the structure and the far-reaching goals of AIMS for the future of Africa's talented young people. Currently AIMS has locations in six African countries, an extension to 15 locations is planned. In a recent workshop for 50 African PhD students at AIMS in Cameroon, at which Professor Buchberger was also teaching, ideas were discussed for a more intensive cooperation between RISC and AIMS and for enhancing AIMS by industrial knowledge transfer following the model of RISC. In the second part of the talk, Professor Foupouagniagni will speak about some of his own research topics and research going on at AIMS.
