The bid is submitted by the University of Primorska, Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Information Technologies.
We strongly believe in cooperation and we appreciate and cherish the work of other mathematical institutions, so we have involved representatives from institutions and societies in Slovenia and abroad. They have a proven track record, rich experiences, and great successes in the field and will bring added value to the team and an in-depth understanding of organisational and scientific aspects of the ECM.
A special focus has been given to attracting professional societies to join the organising committee. The Society of Mathematicians, Physicists and Astronomers of Slovenia (Društvo matematikov, fizikov in astronomov Slovenije -- DMFA) focuses on the popularisation of mathematics, which is why they will be responsible for cooperation with other societies and for promotion of mathematics among the general public.
Technical support will be offered by a special technical advisor to the organizing committee, Abelium d.o.o.
Additionally, the organising committee was extended with an aim to:
- Enlarge the territory covered by the members of the OC and promote the European dimension of the congress;
- Promote the event - each member of the extended committee will be responsible for promotion of 8ECM in his country. In particular, in this way we will be able to secure greater participation and Satellite Events;
- Advise and support the sub-committees and Satellite Conferences;
- Link the OC with national Math Societies.
Local organising tasks will remain the responsibility of the organising committee.
