ESF-EMS-ERCOM Mathematics Conferences

ESF-EMS-ERCOM Partnership

The European Science Foundation (ESF) and the European Mathematical Society (EMS), supported by the European Research Centres on Mathematics (ERCOM), have agreed to co-sponsor a series of Scientific Conferences, within the framework of the ESF Research Conferences Scheme. The Series will be known as ‘ESF-EMS-ERCOM Mathematics Conferences’, and will be at the highest scientific level with respect to topics and choice of participants. The Conferences will bring together participants and experts in mathematics to discuss topics that are of major importance to the scientific community in Europe. Conferences in the series will be hosted in and co-sponsored by selected ERCOM institutions participating in the Scheme.

The European Mathematical Society (EMS)

The European Mathematical Society (EMS) was founded in 1990. The purpose of the Society is to further the development of all aspects of mathematics in the countries of Europe. In particular, the Society aims to promote research in mathematics and its applications. It assists and advises on problems of mathematical education. It concerns itself with the broader relation of mathematics to society. In short, it seeks to establish a sense of identity amongst European mathematicians. Membership of EMS comprises about 50 mathematical societies in
Europe, about 20 academic institutional members, three institutional members, and about 2000 individual members who have joined through their national societies.

The European Research Centres on Mathematics (ERCOM)

The European Research Centres on Mathematics (ERCOM) is a Committee of the European Mathematical Society. The aim of ERCOM is to contribute to the dynamic unity of Mathematics, from fundamentals to applications. The purposes of ERCOM are: to constitute a forum for communications and exchange of information between the centres themselves and EMS; to foster collaboration and coordination between the centres themselves and EMS; to foster advanced research training on a European level; to advise the Executive Committee of the EMS on matters relating to activities of the centres; to contribute to the visibility of the EMS and to cultivate contacts with similar research centres within and outside Europe.
