Warsaw Center of Mathematics and Computer Science (Warszawskie Centrum Nauk Matematycznych) is a joint project of two scientific units: the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics of the University of Warsaw (MIMUW), and the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IMPAN). The Center is built on the long-standing cooperation between the two units, in both teaching and research. The two institutions jointly organize scientific seminars, schools and conferences, and participate in several research grants. Moreover, the two institutions have established a system of joint post-graduate recruitment and joint research positions.
