REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE FOR DEVELOPING COUNTRIES OF EMS

Tsou Sheung Tsun, Michel Waldschmidt (01.11.10).

Membership:
    We have proposed to the EC to elect Ramadas Ramakrishnan Trivandrum, who has just succeeded Le Dung Trang as chair of mathematics at ICTP.
Emerging Regional Centres of Excellence (ERCE):
    Mireille Martin-Deschamps and TST hope to present this in person to the EC, with a more detailed project.
Electronic access:
    Our member Anders Wandahl, with a grant from the IMU, held a workshop on electronic access, which attracted 47 participants. He will do another workshop later this month in Bamako during a CIMPA School.
Book donation:
    We are currently trying to send two substantial personal libraries.
Donation from reviewers of Zentralblatt:
    We continue to receive donations on a regular basis. This year we had an additional donation of 578.29 € from one Japanese reviewer, which we find quite wonderful.
ICTP meeting:
    ICTP is holding a high-profile meeting called "ICTP after 45 years", 8-10 November, 2010, to which TST is invited. She hopes to be able to report some of our activities there.
