6th European Congress of Mathematics
Kraków (Poland), July 2-7, 2012

First Announcement
Scientific Programme. The core of the scientific programme is decided by the Scientific Committee, appointed by the EMS. There will be 10 plenary lectures, 36 invited lectures in parallel sections, 12 lectures by Prize winners and approximately 20 mini-symposia as well as contributed poster sessions. Arrangements will be made for informal discussions, talks and small working groups. Candidates for organizers of mini-symposia are encouraged to fill in an application form on the 6ECM website not later then October 31, 2011.

Prizes. At the 6ECM several prizes will be awarded: 10 EMS Prizes, the Felix Klein Prize in application of mathematics and the Otto Neugebauer Prize in the History of Mathematics. Prize committees were appointed by the EMS. A call for nominations of candidates for prizes is published on the 6ECM website and will appear in the June 2011 issue of the EMS Newsletter.

Proceedings. Proceedings of the 6ECM will be published by the European Mathematical Society Publishing House. They will be available at a special price for the registered participants.

Satellite Conferences. Organizers of the 6ECM invite mathematicians to organize satellite events (conferences etc.), close to the dates of the 6ECM. Participants of satellite events will enjoy some privileges in registering for the 6ECM. Information about satellite events will be distributed through the 6ECM information system. Satellite meetings may carry the EMS logo. Applications for status of the 6ECM satellite event can be done on line from the 6ECM website. Organizers of the 6ECM may help in finding a venue for satellite events - some institutions in Poland would be willing to host satellite meetings.

Grants and financial support. In order to ensure broad participation in the 6ECM and reduce economic barriers, a limited number of grants will be offered, particularly for young mathematicians. Details of the grant programme will be announced on the website on November 1, 2011.

Exhibitions. Space for expositions will be available at the Congress venue for mathematical societies, publishers, and other companies. Detailed information can be found on the 6ECM website.

Registration fee. Regular registration fee until March 31, 2012 will be 1050 PLN (Polish Złoty) which currently is approximately 250 Euro; from April 1, 2012 it will raise to 1250 PLN.

Logistic of the 6ECM. Kraków is an ideal conference site, meeting a variety of needs and interests. Kraków is easily accessible by air, by train and car. Numerous low-fare airlines maintain connections to Kraków from several European cities. The 6ECM will be held in the Auditorium Maximum of the Jagiellonian University, located close to the attractive, historic old city and the green ring around it. Several rooms for the period of the Congress will be booked for the participants in hotels and dormitories (of different possible standards) in a convenient distance from the Congress venue. The reservation of those rooms will start in February 2012 through the Congress registration website.

Kraków and University. Kraków is a treasury of Poland’s national heritage, the capital of Poland till the end of the XVI century, an important cultural centre with many interesting historic and modern objects. Kraków is on the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites. The Jagiellonian University is one of the oldest European universities; Nicolaus Copernicus was among its students. In Kraków Stefan Banach was born and the Polish Mathematical Society was founded.
