Koper, 11th May 2020 - After careful consideration of all available options and in view of the safety and well-being of all participants, a final decision was made to move the date of the 8th European Congress of Mathematics - 8ECM, due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID - 19). The 8ECM organizers and the European Mathematical Society – EMS are announcing a new date for the Congress, which is 20 – 26 June, 2021 in Portorož, Slovenia.
A reminder – the 8ECM is a quadrenial event, hosted by University of Primorska, and it is expected to be one of the largest scientfic events in Slovenia.
One of the innovations at the 8ECM next year is an online streaming format, with the possibility for full and active E-participation, besides the regular format of the conference. Reduced registration fees for different options of E-participation are available, where delegates will have the benefit of participating from home or even from the comfort of their hotel room, thus avoiding the crowds at the Congress centre, but still taking advantage of the early summer in Portorož. Please see https://8ecm.si/news/68 for more relevant information about participating at the congress.
Last but certainly not least, the prize winners for 2020 were announced today. Every four years, during the European Congress of Mathematics, the European Mathematical Society awards 10 EMS Prizes, the Felix Klein Prize and the Otto Neugebauer Prize. All prize winners are usually announced at the Opening Ceremony at the beginning of the congress. Unfortunately, this year the tradition called for an alternative.

The 8ECM organizers are confident that the 8ECM will be as magnificent as ever, and are very much looking forward to welcoming you in Portorož, Slovenia in 2021!
