ECMI is basically a consortium of institutions and companies. Individuals can become members for two years during registration for the bi-annual ECMI conference for Applied and Industrial Mathematics. The list of current ECMI institutional and honorary members can be found here.
A member of ECMI benefits from being part of the European community of mathematicians working on industrial problems – where industry is interpreted as any activity of social or economic relevance. In particular the following opportunities are available:
- The ECMI blog provides an up-to-date interactive forum for European activities in Industrial Mathematics. Each month a different ECMI Institution is featured. Members can post information about events, advertise posts etc.
- The ECMI Annual Report containing news, articles and case studies is published in hard copy and on line
- ECMI supports a number of Special Interest Groups and information about their activities and how to take part is available via the ECMI blog/website.
- Information about EU funding opportunities is shared and partners can be identified.
- The ECMI Research Conference is held every 2 years and participants from ECMI member institutions get reduced registration.
- ECMI is a promoter of the European network of networks EU-MATHS-IN which offers a wide range of services and information on Mathematics in Industry.
- ECMI oversees the European Study Groups with Industry – currently there are between 6 and 9 held each year in different European countries.
- Students from ECMI member institutions who have completed a mathematical thesis on an industrial topic are eligible to apply for the Wacker Prize (MSc) or the Anile Prize (PhD).
- Students from member institutions can apply to attend the annual ECMI Summer School and Modelling Week.
- Information about courses in industrial mathematics and student exchanges is available.
You may find here a poster with information about ECMI activities illustrating how you and your colleagues can make the most of your ECMI membership. Please share it with your colleagues or print it and make it available on your common room or other suitable places.
Currently the subscription rates are:
Academic Institutions: 200 Euros p.a.
Industrial companies: 500 Euros p.a.
Individual members: 75 Euros for two years.
For further information contact the Director the Treasurer:
- Executive Director: Poul G. Hjorth (Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby)
- Treasurer: Thomas Götz (University of Koblenz, Germany)
The following gives a simple overview of what happens with ECMI member’s personal information. Personal information is any data with which a person could be personally identified.
What data is collected?
The address data of the individual, industrial, honorary and academic members is collected by the ECMI treasurer and stored locally at the University in Koblenz on servers that are physically located in Koblenz. The data collected in the address list contains the name and address of the member and (if applicable) relevant contact person(s) (including email, phone, fax) as well as year of entering in the membership, data of last invoice sent. If need, also the VAT number of academic members and industrial members is stored.
This data is necessary for executing the duties of the treasurer (sending invoices and notifying members of relevant activities of ECMI). The data is deleted after the membership has ended and all pending invoices or similar actions are settled.
Who has access to the data?
Remote access to the data is granted to the ECMI’s President, Executive Director and Secretary and to the Head of the Office. To council members, data is given in anonymised from (how many payments pending). Board gets information who is pending. If data leaks should occur members get immediately informed by the usual way we contact them (email).
The servers where the data is stored (own cloud of University Koblenz) are under the umbrella of the University of Koblenz. System administrators have access as needed for maintenance, support, or similar activities. Regular backups for data security needed to guarantee services of ECMI and the interest of its members (taking care of contact address).
ECMI members always have the right to request information about their stored data, its origin, its recipients, and the purpose of its collection at no charge. They also have the right to request that it be corrected, blocked, or deleted.
