A Scientific Committee (SC) meeting was held 6 – 7 February, 2019 in Hotel St. Bernardin, Portorož, Slovenia with the presence of all SC members and presided by Maria J. Esteban (CNRS and Université Paris-Dauphine). The Scientific Committee was appointed by the EMS (European Mathematical Society) to select speakers for the plenary and invited lectures at the upcoming 8th European Congress of Mathematics.
On Wednesday, February 6, 2019, Dragan Marušič, Rector of the University of Primorska, and Tomaž Pisanski, 8ECM Organizing Committee Chair, welcomed the SC with some introductory remarks.
Following introductions, the participants discussed on the final list of speakers for the 8ECM plenary and invited lectures, while they also had the opportunity to see the 8ECM venue at the Congress Centre and the Faculty of Tourism Studies – Turistica, where some of the programme sessions will be held.
