Letter to Member Societies: Call for pre-bids for hosting and organizing ICIAM 2027

 Call for pre-bids for hosting and organizing ICIAM 2027

Dear Presidents and Representatives of Member Societies of ICIAM,
Following current rules, the 2020 ICIAM Board meeting (Glasgow, UK, May 23, 2020) will be the place to present and discuss the pre-bids for ICIAM 2027. Only pre-bids approved by the Board will be allowed to present a complete bid in the 2021 Board meeting, where the final decision will be made about who will organize ICIAM 2027.
If your society plans to bid for ICIAM-2027, please read the companion article (Bid Process for ICIAM 2027) describing how to prepare a bid. Note that in a pre-bid details have to be given to the board about location, organizing group, some plans about financial issues, SPC, etc, but the pre-bid document does not need to contain the precise and complete information that a final bid contains. As written in the attached rules, pre-bids should be sent to me no later than 31 March 2020, and it is possible to submit the document by email.
If you plan to prepare a bid I would appreciate that you let me know. And, of course, please feel free to ask me, or any of the Officers, any question or doubt that you might have during the preparation of the pre-bid document.
Best regards, Ya-xiang Yuan, President of ICIAM
