Reforms in Czechoslovakia in the 1960s came to an end in the spring of 1968 when Soviet troops entered the country. Czechoslovakia became a federal republic, the Czech part and the Slovakia part becoming the Czech Socialist Republic and the Slovak Socialist Republic, respectively. Each had their national parliaments and governments and this federal process led to the Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists splitting into a Czech part and a Slovak part. The **Union of Slovak Mathematicians and Physicists** split off from the old Union in 1969 at the fifth congress of the Union of Czechoslovak Mathematicians and Physicists.

The Union of Slovak Mathematicians and Physicists comprises of two sections, the Slovak Mathematical Society, and the Physical Pedagogical Section. It is a member of the European Mathematical Society, and of the International Mathematical Union.
