To celebrate the 150th year of the London Mathematical Society (LMS) and the 25th year of the European Mathematical Society (EMS) we are organizing a mathematical weekend, to be held in Birmingham from Friday September 18th to Sunday 20th, 2015. All mathematicians, from Europe and elsewhere, are warmly invited to participate.

The weekend features three themes: Algebra, Analysis and Combinatorics. There will be plenary talks by Noga Alon, Keith Ball, Béla Bollobás, Timothy Gowers, Stefanie Petermichl, and Aner Shalev. There will be over twenty other invited talks presented in parallel sessions. Participation by early-stage researchers is particularly welcome and some funding is available to support them. Additional sessions are planned for post-doctoral researchers to present their work, and there will be a poster session for doctoral students.   


From the President

Message from the President (6 Jan 15)

Dear members of the EMS,

let me start by wishing you happy new year marked by good health and humour, as well as by some inspirative  ideas. Opening a new  four-year cycle in the life of our society, I have the opportunity to greet all of you when assuming the EMS presidency. It was your  decision, through the Council delegates, which put me into this role, and I feel a deep gratitude for your trust and at the same time  a grave responsibility thinking of what the job requires.

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.
