Introduction

The Singapore Mathematical Society organises a wide variety of lectures and workshops every year.  The talks are delivered by international and local experts in mathematics and its applications, and mathematics education.  Most of the talks are aimed at a general audience and are suitable for schools students and teachers.  The aims are to raise awareness of aspects of mathematics aside from the normal school curriculum, and to promote interest in mathematics among students, teachers, and the general public.
