The European Mathematical Society 30th Anniversary Meeting will be held on 31st March at ICMS in Edinburgh. The webpage of the event is here (link).
Many congratulations to George Lusztig who has won the Wolf Prize in Mathematics (2022) “for Groundbreaking contributions to representation theory and related areas”. More information here (link)
The following is an English translation of an open letter to the President of the Russian Federation from Russian Mathematicians against the war in Ukraine. The original (reproduced further down) is hosted here (link) on the webpage of the Russian scientific publication, Troitsky Variant. Signatures from mathematicians working in Russia can be added at that link. At time of writing the number of signatures exceeds 350.
The latest edition of the EMS Magazine is out now, and free to read online! (Link here.)
The Executive Board of the European Mathematical Society is deeply concerned about the Russian invasion in Ukraine and expresses its strong solidarity with the people of Ukraine and our fellow mathematicians in Ukraine. While International Mathematical Congresses (ICM) have been and always will be a way to unite the world community of mathematicians, under the current circumstances, we call on the International Mathematical Union not to proceed with the ICM in Russia in July 2022.
The Council is the EMS's governing body, comprising delegates of our corporate and individual members, and meets every two years. Its next meeting will be 25-26 June 2022 in Bled (Slovenia). For more information see this page (link).
