About The Event

Mathematical Congress of the Americas
The goal of the Mathematical Congress of the Americas (MCA) is to internationally highlight the excellence of mathematical achievements in the Americas and foster collaborations among researchers, students, institutions and mathematical societies in the Americas.
Welcome to MCA 2021!
Welcome to MCA 2021!
We hope you will have a great conference, and that it will be a time for discovery and exploration.
Looking forward to meeting you!
Looking forward to meeting you!
We expect more than 500 participants from the Americas and the world. A great chance to make new friends and collaborators!
Mathematical Council of the Americas

The Mathematical Council of the Americas (MCofA) is a network for professional mathematical societies and research institutes based in the Americas, dedicated to promoting the development of mathematics, in all its aspects, throughout the continent. As a continental collaborative effort, special attention is given to cooperating with the Mathematical Union for Latin America and the Caribbean (UMALCA).

The MCofA aims to highlight the excellence of mathematical achievements in the Americas within the context of the international arena and to foster the scientific integration of all mathematical communities in the continent.

The MCofA organizes a quadrennial Mathematical Congress of the Americas (MCA) that rotates host countries throughout the continent.
