The Meetings Committee of the EMS seeks:
1. Nominations for EMS Distinguished Speakers for 2013:
An EMS Distinguished Speaker is a prestigious appointment, awarded to an internationally renowned researcher. An EMS Distinguished Speaker is asked to deliver a plenary lecture in a large regional or international European conference.
2. Proposals for EMS Weekends for 2013:
An EMS Weekend is a regional European conference, interdisciplinary and covering several mathematical fields.
The Executive Committee of the EMS, via its Meetings Committee, is willing to provide support that would cover the cost of the Distinguished Speakers, and support (partially at times) the organization of the EMS Weekends. Since resources are scarce, only a limited number of events can be supported; alternatively, we shall be able, if so desired, to provide the stamp "endorsed by the EMS", and allow the use of the EMS logo, to worthy meetings.
Proposals should include the name of the intended lecturer or speaker, and enough relevant details about the person, as well as details about the proposed meetings and places that the talks would take place in.
Distinguished speakers and EMS Weekends for 2013 can be proposed any time during 2012.
Please address your suggestions, as well as any questions you may have, to the head of the Meetings Committee, via e-address: firstname.lastname@example.org .
