ERCIM news bulletin March 2010

From the President

ERCIM continues to encourage European information technology and applied mathematics research via its members and their networks of contacts. The fellowship programme is popular both with applicants and hosting institutions. The Working Groups demonstrate activity in bringing together researchers from the ERCIM member institutions and wider to discuss issues and generate research proposals. As in the past, some of these proposals and - if successful - subsequent projects are managed by the ERCIM Office, although in the last year or so the number of ERCIM-managed research projects has reduced.

ERCIM has changed its "" top-level domain to "". By chosing the .eu domain name, ERCIM clearly emphasises the European dimension of the organisation. ERCIM had registered its .eu domain name already when this top-level domain was launched in 2006. It was operational since then but redirected to the now historical domain acquired in 1996.

This change concerns all ERCIM web sites as well as the ERCIM email addresses and mailing lists. Please update your links and bookmarks.

ERCIM news bulletin October 2009

From the President

In each issue I seem to say that ERCIM is busy - well this time busier than usual with the submission of several proposals against the EC IST Call5 deadline of October 26th - extended to October 27th because of problems with the EC webserver. ERCIM is coordinating several very interesting proposals and the office staff have been working all hours to achieve submission. We now hope for success with these proposals to increase further ERCIM's presence in the research scene.
