EMS Council 2016 elects Portoroz as organizer of the 8ECM

The second important decision to be taken by the delegates of the council of the European Mathematical Society was the choice of the location of the next European Congress of Mathematics in 2020. Delegations from the two bidders, Seville (Spain) and Portoroz (Slovenia) presented two attractive proposals to council on July 17.
The outcome of the subsequent vote was that European mathematicians will meet for the 8ECM in Portoroz during the week 5-11 July 2020.
