A short report from The Organizing Committee
It is my great honour and pleasure to announce that we are entering the final stage of preparation of the 8th European Congress of Mathematics. Regardless of all COVID-related difficulties we have seen in the last year, I can assure you that our team at the University of Primorska will do its best to make the 8ECM memorable and as socially interactive as possible.
With only 7 weeks away from the beginning of the great event, our team will be preparing a short newsletter with recent news and announcements every Friday until the congress. We hope it will warm you up for the Congress and make you feel most welcome in Slovenia.
Currently, there are more than 1200 participants from more than 70 countries with over 1000 submissions registered, with many highly esteemed senior mathematicians as well as many young researchers and students among them. Selected highlights of the programme and more details on the structure of participants will be given in the upcoming newsletters, as well as practical information regarding your virtual or eventual live participation.
I deeply regret that it might not be possible to meet all of you personally in our country this time. Yet I'm sure that new strong bonds will be made and we shall soon enjoy making mathematics in a person to person setting again in a few months, as the epidemiological situation improves.
