    The meeting was opened by the EWM convenor Marie-Francoise Roy and by Dr. Michael Meier, Chief Administrator of HCM Bonn. The EMS lecturer Tamar Ziegler (Hebrew University, Israel) gave a series of lectures on Dynamics and prime solutions to linear equations. Besides many mathematical lectures, the program included a discussion: In what way do women benefit from “excellence schemes” now widly spread in various European countries?  An session “Present your neighbor” was both instructive and relaxing, as one could find out about the scientific careers, research interests, families and hobbies of the participants.
