The CMS awards every four years the Award of Croatian Mathematical Society to young mathematician for research contribution in mathematics.
In 1996 Ivan Slapničar was awarded for his original and important contributions in relative perturbation theory for eigenvalues and singular values of matrices and the corresponding invariant spaces, and numerical analysis of highly accurate algorithms.
In 2000 Andrej Dujella was awarded for his original and important contributions in finding new sets of Diophantine type, with applications on elliptic curves and number theory.
In 2004 Goran Muić was awarded for his original and important contributions in representation theory of padic groups, theory of local Lfunctions and generic representations, and theta correspondence with applications in the Langlands programme, automorphic forms, and number theory.
In 2008 Ozren Perše was awarded for his original and important contributions in representation theory of vertex algebras and infinite dimensional Lie algebras, with applications in tensor category theory and mathematical physics.
In 2012 Igor Velčić was awarded for his original important contributions to the theory of plate models in elasticity obtained by simultenous homogenization and dimensional reduction.

Round tables
Mathematics education  current state and perspectives Matematičko obrazovanje u Hrvatskoj – stanje i perspektive moderators: Aleksandra Čižmešija, Blaženka Divjak, Željka Milin Šipuš
The round table Mathematics education  current state and perspectives is designed as a followup of the round table The role and importance of mathematics education held at the Fourth Croatian Mathematical
Congress in Osijek (2008). The proposed round table (Rijeka, 2012) would question the actualities related to important topics of mathematics education in Croatia. These are:
review of decisions and conclusions of the round table in Osijek and determination of the degree of their realization, especially in terms of scientific research in the field of mathematics education and
the status of mathematics education in Croatian scientific space
news in general compulsory, secondary and higher mathematical education in Croatia, such as:
 adoption of the National curriculum framework for preschool education and general compulsory and secondary education,
 introduction of externally evaluated assessment in primary and secondary education,
 centralized admission to higher education,
 criteria for admission to higher education, with emphasis on admission to university studies
news in university and lifelong education and licensing of mathematics teachers.
Enhancing mathematical education and research on nonmathematical study programs Unapređenje uloge matematike u obrazovanju i istraživanju na nematematičkim studijima moderators: Blaženka Divjak, Zlatko Erjavec, Vesna Županović
The mathematics is the guiding force and strong support to various technologies, strongly related to natural sciences and economy and used in organization and optimization of processes in business, finances and other areas. Mathematicians have a strong influence on these processes working on current problems as well as educating others in terms of various courses.
It rises a question of organizing such courses which are oriented to education of engineers, economists, computer experts and other highly educated persons.
We will discuss about such courses for nonmathematicians at our universities as well as comparison to other universities abroad. Teaching of mathematics in nonmathematical study can be improved by introducing adequate mathematical topics as well as using new techniques. Hence, we emphasize the elearning of mathematics in high education. Recently, the level of elearning in Croatia has significantly increased. Now, we have to reevaluate obtained results in elearning in mathematics and determine the direction of the future development.
