What is IAMG?

The mission of the IAMG is to promote, worldwide, the advancement of mathematics, statistics and informatics in the Geosciences.


IAMG Home Headline

As a scientific organization that serves an international community of mathematical geoscientists (mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists, geoinformaticians and earth scientists), IAMG is committed to efforts promoting diversity, inclusion, fairness, impartiality and democracy. Our newly adopted Statutes and Bylaws as well as a new Commission exploring the role of women in the IAMG, new awards for early career researchers and female scientists reflect the IAMG's position on ethical values in science. However, we recognise that we have more to do to be fully inclusive, diverse, and supportive of scientists from underrepresented groups. We welcome everyone from around the world to join us to collectively promote our field of mathematical geosciences and our ethical values in science.

Applied Computing and Geosciences
The IAMG and Elsevier have partnered in a new Open Access journal: Applied Computing and Geosciences.
Applied Computing & Geosciences is an online-only Open Access journal focused on all aspects of computing in the geosciences, and like its sister journal Computers & Geosciences, Applied Computing & Geosciences' mission is to advance and disseminate knowledge in all the related areas of at the interface between computer sciences and geosciences. A brief description of the journal is located at: https://www.journals.elsevier.com/applied-computing-and-geosciences/
As an Open Access journal, all articles are free for everyone to read, download, copy and distribute. More details can be found at: https://www.elsevier.com/journals/applied-computing-and-geosciences/2590-1974/open-access-journal
