Report of activities in 2010-2011 by Michel Waldschmidt
Between the meeting in Budapest in April 2010 and the meeting in Madrid in April 2011, my main activities related with EMS-CDC have been the following ones.
First of all, I have renovated and maintained the web site of the European Mathematical Society - Committee for the Developing Countries
There is a subsection on the page
to individual reports, which have a dedicated folder
So far, there is only one item, where this report is available. I invite all members of this committee to send me material for this website. Please, send me your own report, if possible in .html format, and I will include it.
Next, I had a number of visits in developping countries, some of them gave rise to reports which are posted on my web site
Coopération Internationale - International Cooperation http://www.math.jussieu.fr/~miw/cooperations.html
A number of my visits abroad were done under the auspices of CIMPA, of which I am Regional Scientific Officer - see the rubric dedicated to the Indian and Western Asia activities
Among my projects for next year, I wish to mention the following items.
