The Board of Governors is ultimately responsible for the governance of the Institute. It consists of five members, to be announced soon. Director General of AIMS is the ex-officio senior member.

It consists of representatives from Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistan Science Foundation (PSF), National ICT R&D Fund, National Space Agency of Pakistan (NSAP), National Engineering & Scientific Commission (NESCOM), and Ministry of Science & Technology (MoST). The committee seeks small annual ‘dues’ from these organizations. These funds over time builds up an independent endowment for the Institute's operating budget. Sponsors send their faculty members to participate in the Institute’s programmes to further enhance their professional development.

A committee of industrialists sponsors researchers and experts from abroad to come to the institute to teach and do research monitored by the International Scientific Advisory Committee.

The International Scientific Advisory Committee (ISAC) consists of leading researchers from scientifically developed nations. The Committee is responsible for scientific content of programmes. It selects and evaluates programmes and proposals from the mathematical community.

The Joint Committee (JC) comprises six members from three well-established and internationally known fora, namely, Algebra Forum (AF), International Pure Mathematics Conference (IPMC) and Pakistan Mathematical Society (PakMS). The Joint Committee organizes various mathematical programmes.

**Pakistan Mathematical Society**

There was a dearth of a mathematical organization, which can guide and regulate the policies of the government vis-à-vis the state of mathematics and the welfare of the mathematical community at the national level. Establishment of such a society was necessary to mobilize and streamline the efforts and provide a necessary centrifugal boost to the development of mathematics in useful directions in Pakistan.

Thus, on 15^{th} May 2001, a mathematicians moot was convened at the Best Western Hotel in Islamabad, Pakistan. The gathering was attended by close to 70 professionals and students of mathematics. It was decided that the Pakistan Mathematical Society should be formed.

Thus, on 26^{th} June 2001, the Pakistan Mathematical Society (PakMS) came into being. At a function held at the Allama Iqbal Open University, the constitution of the society was passed; officers and executive members were elected.

AIMS is an incubator of high class human source. The institute uses its own resources and is a self-earning and self-reliant mathematical hub for Pakistani mathematicians.

Various academic activities such as workshops, seminars, lectures, colloquia and certificate-awarding courses are starting soon. AIMS acquires the services of experts within the country and abroad to offer interesting and useful courses. This programme caters to the needs of students across the country.

The Institute offers post-graduate one year (two-semester) diploma courses in software engineering. The students from various departments are eligible to register for this course. They will develop soft-wares which will be internationally marketable.

AIMS provides high class supervision to its PhD scholars. The supervisors will be well established foreign and competent national mathematicians.

The Institute organizes schools every year. The principal aim of schools’ programme is to provide training for young researchers in core areas of mathematics. Students meet a number of leading experts in the topic as well as other young researchers working in related areas.

The Advanced Institute of Mathematical Sciences is planning to have its inauguration soon. There will be an opportunity to meet eminent mathematicians, scientists, senior government officials, scholars, senior journalists, industrialists and politicians.

Professor Dr Brent Everitt, University of York, UK, will conduct a workshop on The Geometry and Topology of Groups. It will be a five hour activity per day from 25 to 26 August 2015. The lectures will be an introduction to combinatorial and geometric group theory from the topological point of view. Participants will be given a Certificate, Resource material, and Lunch.
