NEW ARTICLE COMPETITIONS
The Committee for Raising Public Awareness of Mathematics of the European Mathematical Society
(acronym RPA) believes that it is
of vital importance for the recognition of mathematics in society that articles are written popularising mathematics.
The experiences gained from the first article competition organized by the RPA-committee of the EMS (completed in
2003) show that it is most convenient
to distinguish between articles addressing the educated layman and articles addressing a general audience.
The EMS therefore now wishes to encourage the submissions of articles on mathematics to two competitions, one for
articles for the educated layman and one for articles for a general audience. It is the hope to collect valuable contributions,
which deserve translation into many languages. The EMS is convinced that such articles will contribute to
raising public awareness of mathematics.
Deadline for submission to this competition: August 1, 2005.
Deadline for submission to this competition: January 1, 2006.
By submitting an article for one of the competitions, it is assumed that the author gives permission to translation of the article into other languages, and for possible inclusion into a web-site. Translations into other languages will be checked by persons appointed by relevant local mathematical societies and will be included on the web-site.
Articles should be sent before the given deadlines, clearly indicating to which
