Dear members of the EMS,
As mentioned in my last editorial, the world is changing very fast, in particular where open access publishing and new media is concerned. The great news is that Zentralblatt MATH (zbMATH), the world’s most comprehensive and longest-running abstracting and reviewing service in pure and applied mathematics is becoming open access by the beginning of 2021. zbMath is edited by the EMS, the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, and FIZ Karlsruhe. See the item under Miscellanea below.

Dear EMS members,


The world is in a period of fast transition which also affects societies like the EMS. This concerns not only the impact on our research of digitalization and artificial intelligence, but also on the ways that scientific societies interact and communicate with their members.

Dear EMS members,


Let me welcome you all back after a hopefully relaxing summer, with hopefully also a lot of great scientific activities. A mathematical highlight this summer was definitely the ICIAM congress in Valencia, see www.iciam2019.org/ , which had approximately 4000 participants and was opened by the King of Spain. The congress covered all areas of Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and clearly showed the importance of mathematics in society.
