EMS Scientific Activities
Activities organized, co-organized, sponsored or endorsed by the EMS.
Every year, the EMS appoints an EMS Lecturer. This is an honorary post, bestowed on an internationally renowned researcher, affiliated to a European institution. An EMS Lecturer is asked to deliver several lectures in various European places; one of the lectures is tied to an international conference in Europe. Costs of EMS Lecturers are supported by the EMS.
EMS Distinguished Speaker
An EMS Distinguished Speaker is a prestigious appointment, awarded by the EMS to an internationally renowned researcher. An EMS Distinguished Speaker is asked to deliver a plenary lecture at a large regional or international European conference. Costs of EMS Distinguished Speakers are supported by the EMS.
EMS Joint Mathematical Weekend
An EMS Weekend is a regional European conference, interdisciplinary and covering several mathematical fields; usually organized jointly with one or several corporate societies. The EMS provides partial financial support to the organization.
In special circumstances, the EMS may consider contributing to scientific activities not belonging to any of the types listed above. Since resources are scarce, only a very limited number can be partially supported.
Activities endorsed by the EMS
The EMS provides the logo as sign of scientific quality, but not financial support. These activities are susceptible of hosting EMS Distinguished speakers and EMS Lecturers.
A prototype event is a one-week school on a given mathematical area, with at least two courses of 10 hours each. The core programme can be complemented with tutorials and poster sessions by the participants. Proposals should be on topics contributing to the advancement of mathematics and its applications.
