EMS celebrates 25th anniversary at Institut Henri Poincaré
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).
