Weekly seminars are held every Wednesday at 12.30 p.m. in room number 29 at the Department of Mathematics, Quaid-e-Azam University, Islamabad. The idea of holding these seminars was given by Professor Qaiser Mushtaq in order to provide a platform for mutual interaction on a wide range of topics. They cover not only mathematics, but science, and other topics of related fields/aspects of education and related research.

The seminars initially began in the year 2005 under the auspices of Professor Qaiser Mushtaq. The charge of these seminars were subsequently taken over by Dr. Shehla Asif in 2006, and then by Ayesha Rafiq in 2009 . More than 200 seminars have been conducted successfully to date.

The success is further promulgated by the fact that students, scholars and educationists may forward their opinions, ideas and suggestions to the in charge of seminars.

Those interested in this field are cordially invited to participate and may contact the in charge via email at ayesha_rafiq@live.com. The participants will be welcomed on the basis of give/gain knowledge in this education arena.

Algebra seminar is a weekly activity which is usually held on Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m. in Professor Qaiser Mushtaq’s office. It is meant to provide a forum to scholars for interaction on mathematical topics of mutual interest.
