News

As you may have noticed, the EMS website has recently been updated. The new layout and appearance is designed to make the website work well on mobile and tablets devices, as well as providing much more inherent structure to the website's content.

You will find lots of useful features as you browse and interact with the site, such as application of geographical data, entering LaTeX, etc. So you are encouraged to explore.

The biggest change for users is that you now need to login to a user account if you wish to comment on a particular item, or if you wish to submit a news article, event, job posting or book review. Such submissions are still subject to a manual review by the EMS editors, but it does allow contributors to be cross-referenced.
Registration is straightforward - it requires your name and an email address; the email address is never disclosed to the public, nor will it be passed on to any third party. Once you are logged in, links to create content are in the  'Shortcuts' navigation bar at the top of each page.

Message from the President (20 Apr 14)

By the end of this year, my term as President of the European Mathematical Society will come to an end. This is therefore my last traditional annual message, and I would like to start it by sending you all my belated best wishes for a very prosperous and peaceful year 2014. A great deal of our activity in the forthcoming months will be focused on the organization of the Council meeting.
