This international workshop aims to provide a Forum for a general reflection and an international balance by experts on the building the Image of Mathematics, ten years after the WMY2000.
As a joint initiative of CIM and the EMS/RPA committee, it aims to encourage and inspire actions directed towards raising public awareness of the importance of mathematical sciences for contemporary society in a cultural and historical perspective, as well as to provide the mathematical societies with ideas and contributions of concerted actions with other national or international organisations and scientific societies.

The workshop will include about 30 invited participants that will present their views in 20-30 minutes communications, followed by discussions. There will be slots for a limited number of presentations selected by the organising committee from the proposals received.
Interested participants should write a proposal and/or a motivation for their participation to one of the organisers.

The deadline for proposals is August 30th, 2010.
