Letter from the President of ICIAM, Ya-xiang Yuan

Though the Omicron variant of COVID-19 and its new sub-variations are still affecting the world, ICIAM's business is going on smoothly. Thanks to the hard work of the Japanese organizers, the preparation of the 2023 ICIAM Congress proceeds nicely as scheduled. The call for minisyposiums is already open, and submissions for minisyposiums can now be made at the ICIAM 2023 website (http://iciam2023.org). Due to the great efforts of ICIAM's ISC Committee headed by Maria Esteban,  ICIAM has applied to the International Science Council for changing ICIAM's membership category from affiliate member to full member.  The Dianoia Editorial Board Committee chaired by Barbara Keyfitz have done a great job in making ICIAM's newsletters available in PDF files (https://iciam.org/dianoia).

The 2022 board meeting of ICIAM will be held at University of Strathclyde in Glasgow on Sept 3rd, 2022 with a workshop Sept 1-2, thanks to help from IMA and Iain Duff.

I mentioned in my message in the last issue of Dianoia that ICIAM will elect a new secretary this year due to the current secretary, Sven Leyffer, having been elected as the president of SIAM. The call for nominations for secretary has been announced (you can find it in this issue), and  the deadline for submissions is June 15th, 2022.
