The 10-person Commission on Development and Exchange (CDE) of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) held a one-day meeting at the ICTP on 6 November to discuss the commission's future directions and goals. CDE is one of three standing commissions of IMU, which is the world's largest organization of professional mathematicians. IMU's current president is Jacob Palis, who is also a member of the ICTP Scientific Council; CDE's past chairperson is M.S. Narasimhan, who heads the ICTP Mathematics Group. CDE promotes mathematics in the developing world through a modest grants programme for travel and conferences. In addition, it seeks to raise awareness among mathematicians in the North for the research being conducted by their colleagues in the South.
