IMS conferences
 
The
First,
Second
and
Third
Conference of IMS were held respectively at
Madras (1916),
Bombay (1919)
and
Lahore (1921).
One pleasantly notes that
the IMS had jurisdiction beyond the boundaries of the present Indian State.
The
Fourth Conference
of IMS was organized at
Pune in 1924 .
In those days the Conferences of the Society were organized intermittently with a gap of
more years than one.
From 1951 onwards, the Conferences of the Society are being organized annually every year. The Silver Jubilee Celebrations, on the occasion of completion of twenty five years of existence of IMS, were held at Pune on March 26, 1932 under the Presidentship of Sr. Wrangler Principal R. P. Paranjpye. It is at this conference that it was decided to start the publication of another periodical, as a part of this Silver Jubilee Celebrations, and accordingly the Society started a new Journal named The Mathematics Student in 1933  over and above the Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society which was being published from the begining. The 25th (Silver Jubilee) Conference of IMS was held at Allahabad in 1959. It was inaugurated by Late Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, the then Prime Minister of India. The Annual Conferences of the Society are full of very enriching programmes such as Plenary and Memorial Award Lectures by eminent mathematicians, several invited Lectures and Symposia on current areas of research as also the Paper Presentation Competetion and Presentation of large number of research papers by researchers from all over the Country. The details of the venue and some more relevant information of the past conferences is provided in the following:
