The Society's Charter, Statutes, and By-Laws are currently under review, and draft proposals for amendments have been sent to Members for their comments.
The mathematical sciences community welcomes this report, which clearly demonstrates the importance of mathematics and its impact across an exceptionally wide range of disciplines, technologies and industries.
Professor Sir John Ball FRS (University of Oxford) past-President (1996-1998) of the London Mathematical Society has received the 2018 King Faisal International Prize (Science). The Society extends its congratulations to Sir John on receiving this award. The Prize is awarded by the King Faisal Foundation and the Science subcategories cover a range of disciplines, alternating between physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics, with the Prize for Science first awarded in 1984.
Originally launched in 2015 as part of the 150th anniversary celebrations of the London Mathematical Society (LMS), the Hirst Prize and Lectureship is now jointly awarded by the LMS and the British Society for the History of Mathematics (BSHM). The prize is named after Thomas Archer Hirst, who was the fifth President of the LMS (1872–1874).
The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, Royal Statistical Society and London Mathematical Society will be offering the Higher Education Teaching and Learning Workshop Series for 2022/23.

The London Mathematical Society would like to invite nominations for the following prizes in 2023, which are intended to recognise and celebrate achievements in and contributions to mathematics:
The Council for the Mathematical Sciences (CMS) is delighted to announce an important step towards the creation of a National Academy for the Mathematical Sciences (NAMS) with the appointment of the Executive Committee and Executive Director to carry out the feasibility and set-up phase. The proposed academy will represent and advocate for the mathematical sciences and people who work in them including educators, practitioners and academics. It will operate across the whole of the mathematical sciences, including mathematics, statistics and operational research.
Much has been written, over the last twenty years, about the difficulties that young people of Black heritage face in STEM. Yet, despite this awareness, there has been very little progress. Last year, the Royal Society issued a call to action, saying the "STEM sector must step up and end unacceptable disparities in Black staff and students’ academic progression and success".
