Osaka City University Advanced Mathematical Institute (OCAMI) was founded in 2003 as the 21st Century Center of Excellence Program (2003 - 2007). After the program finished, OCAMI continues to promote an international research and educational institute of mathematics and mathematical physics. Especially Professor Yoichiro Nambu, who received a Nobel Prize in physics, worked at Department of Physics at our university, and the tradition is inherited from him and other researchers who are pillars of researches in physics in Japan.

   In addition two previous OCAMI’s programs were adopted by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS): the Institutional Program for Young Researcher Overseas Visits (May 2010 - February 2013) and Strategic Young Researcher Overseas Visits Program for Accelerating Brain Circulation (2011 - 2013). Based on these achievements, OCAMI will train young high-level researchers with internationality and will evolute international research network more extensively and strongly.
