Friday, 16 November 2018 8ECM UPDATE: His Excellency Mr. Borut Pahor, president of the Republic of Slovenia becomes honorary patron of 8ECM!

 

 

 

 

The 8th European Congress of Mathematics is under the honorary patronage of His Excellency Mr. Borut Pahor, President of the Republic of Slovenia

 

We are especially honoured that the 8th European Congress of Mathematics is under the honorary patronage of His Excellency Mr Borut Pahor, President of the Republic of Slovenia.

The 8th European Congress of Mathematics (8ECM) is both an important milestone and a great opportunity for the visibility of Slovenian mathematics, as well as mathematics in the region. Slovene mathematicians publish annually about 300 mathematical papers in international journals, and their research has always had a strong link with the international community. 


However, as much as it is vital to nurture and develop cooperation outside national borders, it is equally critical to have a strong scientific base at home. Our intent is for 8ECM to have a big impact on promoting mathematics as an interdisciplinary field, especially among younger generations. We must demonstrate that they have the support and well-established grounds to explore their curiosity in all fields of science. 


***

8th European Congress of Mathematics in July 2020 is a quadrennial event, taking place every four years and it is held under the auspices of the European Mathematical Society (EMS). The host institution for 8ECM is the University of Primorska, in collaboration with all active mathematical institutions in Slovenia. There are more 1500 mathematicians expected to attend the 8ECM 2020.
