This letter by Maria J. Esteban, President of ICIAM, was written for publication in the issue of Dianoia scheduled to appear just before the ICIAM 2019 Congress. Although the issue did not appear as intended before the Congress, so some activities are now in the past, the letter provides a summary of events at the Council in 2019.
The ICIAM Dianoia is now an online newsletter! This issue, which combines Issue 1 and Issue 2 of Volume 7, contains material from our backlog. Although some of the news is now out-of-date, it is included to provide and archive of ICIAM's activities. In October, we plan to publish the remainder of Volume 7, including reports from ICIAM 2019. As this is the first publication in our new format, we are particularly interested in comments and suggestions. Please send them to Barbara Keyfitz (firstname.lastname@example.org).
