This database, launched in 1996, is maintained by a team of about ten people who, in addition to writing and improving the fiches, each have a specific task, such as

  • ensuring the architecture of the database.
  • following the census of publications of interest to our public (in French).
  • maintaining connections with
    • the CII History and Epistemology of Mathematics;
    • APMEP publications;
    • international publications.
  • performing English-French translations.
  • populating the glossary.

For the last 5 years, the two big new tasks have been:

  • the creation of a classification based on the ZDM ontology, which is in the testing phase; in the “fiches,” you find this in the field “Classification.”
  • the digitization of IREM's and APMEP’s documents.

Hombeline Languereau is currently co-responsible for CII Publimath (with Michèle Bechler, who has served in this role since the creation of the CII in 1996). Anne Michel-Pajus ensures in particular the connections with the CII History of Mathematics and international publications.
