With less than 8 months left before the Congress, I urge all of you to encourage members of your societies to register for ICIAM-2023, to attract as many people to the congress as possible and to make our congress a great success. Information about how to make registrations, how to organize mini-symposia, how to submit contributed talks and posters and how to apply for financial support can be found at the website of the Congress (http://iciam2023.org).

       Right after ICIAM-2023, the Board meeting will take place on August 26th, to make several important decisions, including:

1)election of 2 Officers at large,

 2)choice of the Scientific Program committee (SPC) for ICIAM-2027 which will be held in the Hague in 2023,  (The chair of the SPC for ICIAM-2027 will be Professor Barbara Wohlmuth.  I would like to remind you that  suggestions for  membership of SPC should be sent to me before the 10th of February, 2023.)
