Last week the mathematician Tuna Altinel, member of the European Mathematical Society and professor at the Université Lyon 1 in France, was arrested in Turkey after he had his passport extracted by the police. Tuna Altinel was one of the signatories of the peace petition supported by more than 2000 scientists and intellectuals against military actions towards civilians.

The European Mathematical Society condemns this violation of Prof Altinel’s human rights and demands that he is immediately released and allowed to return to France to resume his teaching and research.

  • Survey by the EMS Education Committee

    Student transition from school-level mathematics to university-level mathematics, often referred to as the secondary-tertiary transition
    (STT) is an enduring, complicated and multi-faceted process. The EMS Education Committee is conducting a survey to collect and report to the mathematics community information needed in order to devise national and international actions that can essentially improve the state of the art with respect to STT. The survey is open until September 15, 2019.

  • Feedback from the EMS on the Implementation of Plan S

    The mathematical community has been for a long time on the forefront of establishing an accessible, efficient, fair and transparent scholarly publishing system. The EMS and its Publications and Electronic Dissemination Committee are in favour of Open Access to the scientific literature. They have given a detailed feedback on Plan S and its guidelines to the Science Europe Office. The text can be found here.
