Message From Director

Assalamualaikum w.r.t. and Greetings

First and foremost, I would like thank the visitors for surfing the official website of Institute for Mathematical Research (INSPEM). Welcome to our website.

Established in 2001, INSPEM was the first research institute founded in Malaysia with the mandate of specializing in the research field of mathematics. The primary function of the establishment of INSPEM is to create a critical mass of researchers in the high-end research of mathematics, perform research in all areas that have been identified, creating the latest mathematical research facility, become a reference centre for mathematical research, disseminating research information of INSPEM to public and private sectors, create training facilities to young researchers and to establish collaborations with researchers and research institutions within and outside the country. Beyond 10 years of establishment, the institute has now grown rapidly with varieties of mathematical research conducted at INSPEM as well as organizing various activities such as conferences, courses and seminars to all clients. Furthermore, INPSEM also conducts research collaboration with various institutions within and outside the country through MOU and MOA cooperation.


Currently, INSPEM has 5 laboratories namely Laboratory of Cryptography, Analysis and Structure, Laboratory of Computational Statistics and Operations Research, Laboratory of Computational Sciences and Mathematical Physics, Laboratory of Ethnomathematics and Didactic and Laboratory of Statistical and Computational Services. In addition, INSPEM also has a special section which is the High Performance Computing Services Section (HPC). Laboratory of Statistical and Computational Services and High Performance Computing Services Section have just been established on April 1, 2011 and commenced operations in June 2011. The main objective of the laboratory is to provide high-end statistical services to researchers from various fields no matter inside or outside the university. On the other hand, the section was created to provide HPC services to all research within and outside the university.


I hope you’ll find the information given in the website enlightening and useful. If there are any questions and things that are not clear about INSPEM, please do contact us by referring to the staff directory.
