The First Workshop was organized in 1998 by a group of Association's members, guided by president Anna Stasica. During the whole week fifteen participants, mainly from Cracow, listened to lectures concerning Algebraic and Analytic Geometry, given by scientists from the Polish Academy of Science (PAN) and professors from the Jagiellonian University (UJ).

The conference for "young mathematicians" turned out to be a great idea! The number of participants of the following year's edition increased to 53. The topic of the Second Workshop was Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems. For the first time participants chose the best lecture of the conference - its author was UJ student, Monika Czaja. In the same year first press article appeared - "Gazeta Wyborcza" described the group of organizers and their work.

The Third Workshop - "Singularity Theory" grew up to 73 participants - students of 19 Polish academies. Also, for the first time conference hosted foreign guests - students from Lviv and lecturers from Belgium and France. The integration party and the camp-fire for all participants and organizers became a tradition, but every year it gets more and more difficult to find a place for everyone!

The more guests, the more work is necessary! To make all organizing tasks possible, the preparations for next year's Workshop have to start in November. And the number of participants still increases: 86 students took part in fourth edition, concerning Complex Analysis, and many of them were habitues! The 5th Workshop - "Approximation Theory" was a real success: 104 guests from 22 academies. We tried as hard as we could not only to teach, but also to integrate them. And many of our guests enthusiastically promised us to come back...

And they held their word! The 6th Workshop for Young Mathematicians "Operator Theory" gathered 142 students from 42 academies, 22 of them were foreign guests. The increasing number of foreigners was the main cause of renaming next Workshop, concerning Applied Mathematics, to International. English became the leading language. That was also the first time a poster session was organized. Despite we were proud of growing number of participants - 202 - we had to reduce it. We hope, however, that it induced better organization of the 8th International Workshop for Young Mathematicians "Geometry".

In 2006, 176 students and PhD students from 39 universities in Poland and other countries (not only in Europe!) were our guests at IX Workshop "Topology". We took part in many interesting lectures and the second poster session. This year we found out more about Combinatorics.

We are looking forward to seeing you next September on the 11th Workshop!
