News from the associate members
Congress on Mathematical Physics: As you know well the congress
convene in Rio from August 6 to August 11 this year, cf. the ICMP web
page. In connection with this there are several things you might
want pay attention to:
- Call from the local
organizers: Deadlines for reduced registration fees and for
poster submissions are now extended
to May 31. Organizers especially encourage young researchers to
present their work and apply for financial support. Grants
will be available for recent Ph.D. students and participants from
countries. The deadline for applications for financial support is
extended to May 31 as well.
Don't miss this
wonderful opportunity to participate in one of the most important and
exciting events in the field and also to enjoy Rio de Janeiro!
- General Assembly:
During the Congress there will be a meeting of the General Assembly.
The agenda includes a report from
President, bids for the organisation
of the ICMP in 2009, and also changes
in the Statutes - see the following item.
- Statutes changes:
The statutes and bylaws of IAMP were written three decades ago. The
world is changing quickly and the Executive Committee feels that some
modifications would be useful, in particular, in the voting procedures
where the postal ballots should be replaced by a system reflecting
of the electronic age. A proposal resulting from an EC discussion and a
legal expertise with the intended changes is posted here.
Please send your comments to the Secretary.
- Visa information for the
Please check carefully the Brasilian visa requirements regarding your
country. There have been recent changes and citizens of several
countries recently need a visa, or a new kind of visa, to enter Brazil
