Benefits of membership of the European Mathematical Society

The principal reasons for joining the European Mathematical Society may be altruistic:

  • to encourage European mathematicians to cooperate;
  • to support European mathematicians working under difficult circumstances;
  • to support efforts to get backing for mathematics from the European Union.

But there are benefits to individual and institutional members as well:

  • Free access to Zentralblatt MATH (To obtain login and password please contact Olaf Teschke teschke@zblmath.fiz-karlsruhe.de.)
  • EMS Newsletter, published 4 times a year for no extra charge;
  • reduced registration fees for the European Congresses;
  • reduced registration fee for some EMS co-sponsored meetings;
  • discount on subscriptions to the Journal of the European Mathematical Society*;
  • discount on books published by the European Mathematical Society*;
  • discount on books and journals published by the International Press;
  • discount on books published by Taylor & Francis
  • reciprocity memberships available at the American, Australian, and Canadian Mathematical Societies.

You can join the European Mathematical society in one of the following ways:

How to join the EMS through an EMS member society

Membership in the EMS can be organised via the 52 European mathematical societies, which are corporate members of EMS. Normally joining EMS as an individual member through an EMS member society is simple: one just pays the extra amount (23 euro) for EMS membership when paying the regular membership fee.
Please address an informal application to your national society.


How to join the EMS as reviewer of Zentralblatt für Mathematik

In the case of countries where the national mathematical society is not a member of the EMS or where there are economic reasons which make the payment of the membership fee through the national society difficult, Zentralblatt may arrange this payment from the reviewer's account as far as money is available there. The rates for the fee under these special conditions for reviewers of Zentralblatt are:

  • 23 euro for persons belonging to a corporate EMS member society.
  • 34 euro for persons belonging to a reciprocity EMS corporate member.
  • 46 euro for persons not belonging to any EMS corporate member.
  • 11 euro for an introductory fee.

How to join the EMS as a corporate body

Corporate bodies with legal status may join the Society in one of the following categories:

(a) Full members,

(b) Associate members,

(c) Institutional members.

Full membership is restricted to societies, or similar bodies, primarily devoted to promoting research in pure or applied mathematics within Europe. Associate membership is open to all societies in Europe having a significant interest in any aspect of mathematics. Institutional membership is open to commercial organizations, industrial laboratories or academic institutes.

Full members are elected by the Council and other corporate members by the Executive Committee. Corporate bodies wishing to become members of the EMS should provide appropriate evidence of their nature and activities. Full members will, as decided by the Council, be divided according to size and resources into four classes having 1, 2, 3, or 4 delegates.
