The programme will be prepared by the EMS, which will appoint the Scientific Committee. There will be a call for suggestion of members of the Scientific Committee from the EMS member societies, after which the membership of the committee will be approved by the EC, in consultation with its chair.
Local organisers will name the "programme subcommittee", which will be in charge of the congress programme coordination (including minisyposia and contributed talks) and will ensure the mathematical diversity and coverage of the full spectrum of mathematical disciplines. Additionally, satellite events will cover all mathematical disciplines and will support mathematical diversity.
The programme subcommittee will be formed after (and in the case of) the success of the bid.
