# Australian Mathematical Society

The **Australian Mathematical Society (AustMS)** was founded in 1956 and is the national society of the mathematics profession in Australia. One of the Society's listed purposes is to promote the cause of mathematics in the community by representing the interests of the profession to government.[1] The Society also publishes three mathematical journals. Currently, the Society's president is Timothy Marchant.[2]
