### Announcement of the next meeting of the EMS Council

The EMS Council meets every second year. The next meeting will be held in Prague, June 23 and 24, 2018 at Balling Hall at the National Library of Technology (Technická 2710/6, 160 80 Praha 6 - Dejvice).

### Delegates

Delegates to the Council shall be elected for a period of four years. A delegate may be re-elected provided that consecutive service in the same capacity does not exceed eight years. Delegates will be elected by the following categories of members.

Full Members

Full Members are national mathematical societies, which elect 1, 2, 3, or 4 delegates according to their membership class. The membership class is decided by Council, and societies are invited to apply for the new class 4, which was introduced in the 2008 Council. However, the number of delegates for the 2018 Council is determined by the current membership class of the society.

Each society is responsible for the election of its delegates.

There is an online nomination form for delegates of full members. The deadline for nominations for delegates of full members is 15 April 2018.

Associate Members

Delegates representing associate members shall be elected by a ballot organized by the Executive Committee from a list of candidates who have been nominated and seconded by associate members, and have agreed to serve. In October 2017, there were 2 associate members and, according to our statutes, these members may be represented by (up to) one delegate.

There is an online nomination form for delegates of associate members. The deadline for nominations for delegates of associate members is 15 March 2018.

In October 2017, there were 44 institutional members and, according to our statutes, these members may be represented by (up to) 4 delegates.

The delegate whose term includes 2018 is Klavdija Kutnar. The delegate who can be re-elected is Alberto Pinto.

Individual Members

Delegates representing individual members shall be elected by a ballot organized by the Executive Committee from a list of candidates who have been nominated and seconded, and have agreed to serve. These delegates must themselves be individual members of the European Mathematical Society.

In October 2017 there were 2816 individual members and, according to our statutes, these members may be represented by (up to) 28 delegates. However, this number may have increased by the time we call the election (if any) for individual members.
