Management Structure

The Management Committee of ICMS has overall responsibility for the management of all funds and resources, for the appointment and regulation of staff and for the determination of strategy.  The ICMS Board consists of representatives appointed by the parent universities, nominations by the Council for Mathematical Sciences and members with a broad range of interests in the mathematical sciences. These positions are appointed after an open advertising process. The ICMS Board is chaired by Sir David Wallace. The Board oversees all activities and advises the Management Committee.

The Programme Committee has responsibility for assessing all workshop proposals, evaluating past programmes and advising the Director on areas of mathematical sciences in which workshops might be encouraged. The Programme Committee is chaired by Maria Schonbek.

The Nominating Committee reviews applications for positions on the ICMS Board and Programme Committee and makes recommendations to the Management Committee.

ICMS is jointly owned by the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University.
