Over 1000 talks at the 8ECM Congress
We are now only three weeks away from the official kickoff of the congress. On behalf of the Local Scientific Committee, I am happy to report that the scientific programme will consist of more than 1000 talks. Apart from the EMS prize talks, plenary and invited talks and some special lectures, the 8ECM will host 62 minisymposia with contributed talks on a variety of mathematical topics. Among these, there are 8 minisymposia with at least 20 contributions: Combinatorial Designs (MS - ID 16), Operator Algebras (MS - ID 14), Approximation Theory and Applications (MS - ID 78), Topological Methods in Differential Equations (MS - ID 13), Graphs, Polynomials, Surfaces, and Knots (MS - ID 49), Modeling Roughness and Long-Range Dependence with Fractional Processes (MS - ID 18), Harmonic Analysis and Partial Differential Equations (MS - ID 28), and Recent Developments on Preservers (MS - ID 38).
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all involved in the preparation of this rich and attractive scientific programme, in particular to all minisymposia organizers and members of the local scientific committee whose efforts helped to make this programme as representative of current mathematical trends as possible.
