Council had to make two important decisions on its first meeting day in Krakow:
1. The Kosovar Mathematical Society was accepted (by secret ballot) as new corporate member of the society.
2. Council decided that the 7th European Congress of Mathematics in 2016 will take place in Berlin.
Among other items, council approved the treasurer's report and accepted the budget proposal for the years 2013-2014. Fees, that had been stable since 2008, will raise by 4-5%.
