A New Year has begun, and on behalf of all officers I would like to wish you a very successful, happy and healthy 2024. We are looking forward to a new year with many new opportunities to work on our mission to promote industrial and applied mathematics. But we are also looking backward to a very successful year 2023.
Happy New Year! Here is the first issue of Volume 12 of ICIAM Dianoia. We have an important call for pre-bids for ICIAM 2031, an interview with Past-President Ya-xiang Yuan, news from the International Science Council and other organizations, and more recollections from ICIAM 2023.
