## Report of activities in 2012-2013 by Michel Waldschmidt (April 2013)

Between the meeting in Limoges in April 2012 and the meeting in Linköping in April 2013, my main activities related with EMS-CDC have been the following ones.

I had a number of visits in developing countries - see my web site
http://www.math.jussieu.fr/~miw/AgendaArchives.html

- I participated to the
Joint congress of the French Mathematical Society (SMF) and the Vietnamese Mathematical Society (VMS) in Hué (Vietnam), August 20-24, 2012.

With Pierre Cartier, we took this oppportunity, on the way back in Ho Chi Minh-City, to visit Pham Minh Hoang, a French and Vietnamese mathematician, who has been arrested at Ho Chi Minh-City on August 13, 2010. He was sentenced 3 years of prison on August 10, 2011. On November 29, 2011, the sentence was reduced to 17 months of jail and 3 years of house arrest. He came out of jail on January 13, 2012. See

Theoretical Statistics and Mathematics Unit of the
Indian Statistical Institute (ISI).

On October 12, 3:30 pm, I visited Delhi University, South Campus.

- From mid October to end of November 2012, with
Jorge Jimenez Urroz, who is the Regional Scientific Officer of
CIMPA (Centre International de Mathematiques Pures et Appliques), we gave a course on Number Theory in
Central Department of Mathematics, Tribhuvan University TU, Kirtipur, Kathmandu, Nepal.

- In December 17 - 22, 2012. New Delhi (India), I participated to the
International Conference on
The Legacy of Srinivasa Ramanujan.

- From January 25 to February 1, 2013, I visited the
Harish-Chandra Research Institute (HRI), Allahabad (India).

From February 1 to 3, 2013, I visited the The Institute of Mathematical Sciences (IMSc), Chennai (India).

From February 4 to 8, 2013, in Calicut = Kozhikode (Kerala, India), in the The Kerala School of Mathematics (KSoM), I organized a Workshop on number theory and dynamical systems.

- In March 1-13, 2013, in Lahore (Pakistan) I visited the
Abdus Salam School of Mathematical Sciences (ASSMS). From March 6 to 9, 2013, I participated to the
6th World Conference on 21st Century Mathematics 2013.

On March 11, 2013, I participated to a*Workshop on Number Theory and Related Topics*organized by the National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences [NUCES], Peshawar.

On March 12, 2013, I visited COMSATS IIT, Lahore Campus

- On April 6, 2013, in Aarhus (Denmark), I participated to the
EMS meeting of the presidents 2013 organized by the
Danish Mathematical Society (DMF) and the
European Mathematical Society (EMS).

See my presentation of the*EMS-CDC*screen pdf: 233 Ko, 14 p. print pdf: 275 Ko, 4 p. - I participate, with some colleagues from France, Iran and Turkey, to a scientific committee where we coordinate activities of cooperation between mathematicians from the three countries.
