The European Mathematical Society was founded in 1990 at Mandralin near Warsaw in Poland. The Society will thus soon be 25 years old. To mark the anniversary, a one day event under the title "Challenges for the next 25 years" will be held at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris on October 22, 2015. Lectures with mathematical topics will be given by Hendrik Lenstra (Leiden, the Netherlands), Laure Saint-Raymond (ENS Paris, France), László Lovász (Budapest, Hungary), and Andrew Stuart (Warwick, UK). A panel moderated by ERC president J.P. Bourguignon will discuss specific challenges for the mathematical sciences. It will consist of ICIAM president Maria Esteban, the director of the Institut Mittag-Leffler and previous EMS president Ari Laptev, Peter Bühlmann (ETH Zürich representing the Bernoulli Society) and Roberto Natalini (Istituto per le Applicazioni del Calcolo, Rome, and chairman of the EMS committee Raising the public awareness of mathematics).

From the President
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.
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.
