We had some cooperation between Brazil and China, Brazil and India. But we didn´t make some event among five countries of the BRICS group. It is time to make such wide cooperation. The first BRICS Mathematics Conference was hold at Beijing from Aug. 21-25, 2017. There were 15 plenary speakers from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa in Pure mathematics, applied mathematics and probability/statistics recommended by mathematics society of each country. In order to continue this cooperation, the second BRICS mathematics conference will be at Foz do Iguaçu, July 23-27, 2018 just before the ICM. The conference will motivate and improve the research and teaching on mathematics in the south of Brazil and also South America. Contribution talks are welcome from whole world.
