During the Council Meeting at the Kalasalingam University in December 2009, the IMS Council included the other mathematical areas and regrouped the same for Six IMS Prizes, AMU Prize and V M Shah Prize. However, during the Council meeting held at the Guest House, Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (SVNIT), Surat 395 007, Gujarat, in December 2010, Prof. Huzoor H. Khan (AMU, Aligarh) pointed out that the subject areas, as originally stipulated for the AMU Prize, were Algebra, Differential Geometry and Functional Analysis and the Faculty of the Department of Mathematics, AMU, wishes that these may be continued even after regrouping. The Council discussed the matter, finalized the regrouping and resolved that the following regrouping of mathematical areas for these prizes be implemented with immediate effect. Thus, from now onwards, following will be the areas and the regrouping for these prizes :
1.

3. (a) The paper to be presented for the competition has
to be under single authorship.
(b) Independent work at the postdoctoral level is
preferred.
(c) The work must have been carried out in India.
(d) Stress will be on both, quality of research as
well as performance during the presentation.
Note :
One who is already awarded a prize in a certain area in the past is not expected to participate in the competition for the prize in the same area.
All the Heads of the Departments / Institutions and the Research Supervisors are requested to encourage their research workers for participation in this competition. All the research papers intended to be presented for prizes or otherwise during the ensuing Annual Conference of 2011 should be sent to Professor Satya Deo, Academic Secretary, IMS. The manuscript and the abstract of the papers intended for presentation be prepared as suggested later on in the Manuscript Style paragraph. Only Members of the Society are entitled to participate in the Academic Programmes or present their papers in the Conferences. In case of joint authorship of a manuscript, all the authors are required to be members of the Society. Further details for sending such papers will be announced in the next (August) News Letter. 

To popularize mathematics and to create awareness regarding the Society and its activities in the Country, the Society has a Scheme of Sponsored Lectures. It provides a token support of Rs. 1000/ to a number of Departments / Institutions for organizing popular and semi technical lectures. Members arranging such lectures are required to send the report of the arranged lectures to The Treasurer, IMS, with a copy to The Editor, The Mathematics Student. Society intends to enhance this activity of organizing such lectures at more and more centers. Members desirous to organize such lectures at their centers may write to the General Secretary Professor V. M. Shah through their respective heads.
