On May, 6th, 1992, in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), the International Mathematical Union declared that the Year 2000 will be the World mathematical Year.
The Declaration of Rio sets three aims :
- The great challenges of 21st Century
- Mathematics, a key for Development
- The image of mathematics

PLANS FOR WMY 2000 (see the agenda and the projects)
Many Mathematical Institutions are already involved but the event has to be really international!
All plans in the spirit of the aims of WMY 2000 are welcome all around the world.

It is with deep regret that we announce the passing away of Professor Jacques-Louis Lions on May 17 2001.
He was the first to have the idea in 1992 of the World Mathematic Year 2000 when he was the president of the IMU. After that his contribution to its success was considerable.
For all those who wish to pay a tribute to his memory, a register of condolence has been opened on the Web.
