Why be an FoCM member?

As things stand, FoCM is being run by its Board of Directors. Unlike other organisations, FoCM does not have a formal membership structure, with rights (electing the governing bodies), benefits (membership services) and obligations (membership fees). Everybody with an interest in the core activities of FoCM can be a member at no cost. But why bother?

Several reasons:

Firstly, you will be joining a database of colleagues with an interest in foundations of computational mathematics. This will help us to keep in contact, inform you about our activities and let us form a better-informed view of the range of interests and geographic spread of the FoCM community.

Secondly, all the activities of FoCM are done on a voluntary basis, by individuals committed to this project. We like to believe that the institution of participating membership will help to bring additional colleagues into the realm of FoCM activity.
