The first ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING on 14th September 1995 was convened for the
Conference of Heads of Departments of Mathematical Sciences at University College, Gower Street, London.
Graham Wilks, the first chair of the conference of HoDoMS, outlined preliminary ideas for a meeting on the theme of overcoming fragmentation in the mathematics community.
HoDoMS has developed and grown since then. On 14th August 2018, HoDoMS was incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee.
HoDoMS currently has approximately 50 members from the (roughly) 80 Departments/sub-Departments of Mathematical Sciences across the UK. There is a small annual membership fee for Departments which covers operating costs and allows HoDoMS to undertake occasional projects on behalf of the community it represents. New members are welcome - details of how to pay the subscription are provided at the following link:
