The EMS Council meets every second year. The next meeting will be held in Kraków, June 30 and July 1, 2012, in the Auditorium Maximum of the Jagiellonian University. The Council meeting starts at 13.00 on June 30 and ends at noon on July 1.
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.
(a) 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 2012 Council is determined by the current membership class of the society.
Each society is responsible for the election of its delegates. Each society should notify the Secretariat of the EMS in Helsinki of the names and addresses of its delegate(s) no later than 15 April 2012.
(b) 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. A nomination form for delegates of associate members will be provided to these members by the EMS Secretariat.
(c) Institutional Members
Delegates representing institutional members shall be elected by a ballot organized by the Executive Committee from a list of candidates who have been nominated and seconded by institutional members, and have agreed to serve. A nomination form for delegates of institutional members will be provided to these members by the EMS Secretariat.
(d) Individual Members
In December 2011, there were 2402 individual members and, according to our statutes, these members will be represented by (up to) 25 delegates.
Here is a list of the current delegates of individual members whose terms include 2012:

Members of the Executive Committee are elected for a period of four years. The President can only serve one term. Committee members may be re-elected, provided that consecutive service shall not exceed eight years.
The Council may, at its meeting, add to the nominations received and set up a Nominations Committee, disjoint from the Executive Committee, to consider all candidates. After hearing the report by the Chair of the Nominations Committee (if one has been set up), the Council will proceed to the elections to the Executive Committee posts.
All these arrangements are as required in the Statutes and By-Laws.
