Due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID - 19), the 8ECM organizers and the European Mathematical Society – EMS announced that the 8ECM is moved online.


Due to the worlwide coronavirus pandemic (COVID - 19) in 2020, the 8ECM was moved from 5 - 11 July 2020 to a new date, which is 20 – 26 June, 2021. The venue of the congress remains the same - Congress centre Bernardin in Portorož, Slovenia.


Between 20 and 26 June 2021, the 8th European Congress of Mathematics (8ECM) will be held in Portorož, Slovenia which will be the world's largest event in mathematics in 2020. The European Congress of Mathematics is organized by the European Mathematical Society (EMS) every four years and is the second largest event of mathematics in the world.


European Mathematical Society is a learned society representing mathematicians throughout Europe. It promotes the development of all aspects of mathematics in Europe, in particular mathematical research, relations of mathematics to society, relations to European institutions, and mathematical education. The EMS has its members in around 60 national mathematical societies in Europe, 40 mathematical research centres and departments, and 3000 individuals.


The EMS is an affiliate member of the International Mathematical Union - IMU and an associate member of the International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics - ICIAM.


EMS Congresses are held from 1992 when the 1st European Congress of Mathematics took place in Paris, France.

Since 1992 European Congress of Mathematics was held every four years in different parts of Europe:


The organizers of the 8th European Congress of Mathematics look forward to welcoming you in Portorož, Slovenia!
