About June E Huh Center for Mathematical Challenges

June E Huh Center for Mathematical Challenges was established by the Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS) to resolve mathematical challenges and present emerging strategies in new fields. The HCMC also seeks to serve as a global hub in solving mathematical problems and in satisfying the intellectual curiosity of young and adventurous mathematicians around the world.

The HCMC aspires to attain international leadership by focusing on well-known mathematical challenges and creating synergy as a national brand for South Korea. It will contribute to the enhancement of national competitiveness in basic science and technology, which will ultimately result in a positive impact on humanity.

* HCMC is on the 3rd floor of Bld.8 of KIAS.
