Monday, 22 February 2021 8ECM Moved Online

Official Statement from the organizers

After months of planning, discussing options and finally, after careful consideration, the Executive Committee of the European Mathematical Society and the organizers of the 8th European Congress of Mathematics have reached a decision that all lectures, including Public, Plenary, Invited and Prize lectures, as well as Minisymposia and Special Sessions, planned to take place in Portorož, Slovenia, 20 – 26 June 2021, are moved online.

This is not a decision we are taking lightly, especially after two years of actively planning the event, but the uncertainty of the worldwide public health issue, travel bans and nationwide restrictions do not allow for many alternative options.

First and foremost, we would still like to encourage participants to travel to Portorož, Slovenia, if they can and wish to do so. For those who travel to Slovenia during the week of the 8ECM, an informal event will be organized at the initial congress venue, and they will be able to attend the online 8ECM from their hotel rooms. We will also provide smaller lecture rooms for closed groups hosting discussions and smaller meetings, if the situation allows. Likewise, we hope that at least one satellite event will take place live!

Exhibitors will be able to present their products and services online; the 8ECM organizers will provide technical support and the communication platform. Art exhibitions and other cultural events will be dispersed across various locations, expanding throughout 2021 and 2022.

We understand that an online format of the congress cannot transcend the experience of a live event, nevertheless, we hope that a large part of the mathematical community will continue to offer their support and that you will join us for the 8th European Congress of Mathematics this summer!
