New EC Members and EFMC-ISMC 2018

As usual, the Sunday morning before the opening of the EFMC-ISMC has been devoted to the EFMC Council Meetings. Among the various things, the Council had the task of electing new components of the Executive Committee for the 2015-2017 term. Gabriele Costantino (University of Parma, Italy) leaves the EC after six years of commitment, and the same does Hein Coolen (Utrecth, The Netherlands), who had to resign from his position of Treasurer due to changed professional responsibilities. Thus, the EC decided to propose Pascal George, member of the EC, as new Treasurer, and this left one position more open for EC memberships. Two applications came, from Antonello Mai, University of Rome (Italy) and Yves P. Auberson, Novartis (Switzerland). The Council unanimously accepted the proposal for the new Treasurer and approved the candidatures, which will thus be effective starting January the 1st, 2015. The Council warmly thanked the leaving members and welcome the new ones!

In the same meeting, the Council took the decision for the 25th EFMC-ISCM which will be held in 2018. Only one candidature came, from Slovenia, which was very nicely presented by Prof. Danijel Kikelj and Dr. Marko Anderluh. Two possible locations were proposed, one in the Slovenia’s Capital, Lubijana, the other one in Portorose, in the Adriatic sea. The presentation and the proposal was very much appreciated by the Council that unanimously approved the candidature, expressing the preference for the Lubijana’s option.

See in you Slovenia, 2018!
