In early October, the ICTP held a two-day roundtable discussion focusing on the state of mathematics research and education in Africa. The meeting attracted 32 leading African-born mathematicians working in sub-Saharan Africa, Europe and the United States. Key points of discussion included the poor state of African mathematics research and education, the continuing problem of the brain drain, and how expatriate African mathematicians living in Europe and the United States could help their colleagues in Africa. Participants formed several committees to explore future initiatives and potential funding opportunities. For additional information, please contact the ICTP Office of External Activities at
