Message from the President

Dear members of the EMS,

let me start by wishing you happy new year marked by good health and humour, as well as by some inspirative  ideas. Opening a new  four-year cycle in the life of our society, I have the opportunity to greet all of you when assuming the EMS presidency. It was your  decision, through the Council delegates, which put me into this role, and I feel a deep gratitude for your trust and at the same time  a grave responsibility thinking of what the job requires.

Message from the President

This is therefore my last traditional annual message, and I would like to start it by sending you all my belated best wishes for a very prosperous and peaceful year 2014. A great deal of our activity in the forthcoming months will be focused on the organization of the Council meeting.

During the last three months, the Executive Committee has been shaping some of the plans described in the “Message from the President” from last January. These include attracting new members, with special attention to young people, making the Society more visible, and increasing communication with all our members. The recently established agreement with UMALCA (Mathematical Union of Latin America and Caribbean Countries) opens the door to a challenging co-operation with a learned society representing a large community outside Europe’s borders.
