2. Call for Nominations of Host Institution of Forum "Math-for-Industry" 2024

The Forum "Math-for-Industry"(FMfI) is a series of annual conferences organized by APCMfI, which started since 2008. As announced in a separate message, the fifteenth edition, FMfI2023, will be held from 29th August - 1st September at Fukuoka, Japan, and hosted by the Institute of Mathematics for Industry, Kyushu University.

This time, nomination of the host institution for the FMfI2024, which should be held in FY2024, namely April 2024 - March 2025, is cordially invited. The APCMfI will support the host institution with approximately 150,000JPY, but the host institution is required to arrange financially for the other expenses incurred. The nomination should be sent to the APCMfI office at
apcmfi-office(at)apcmfi.org by 31st July 2023, together with the following data:

3. Council Members Renewal

The term of the current Council is FY2021-2022 which ends in March 2023, and the election of the Council Members must be carried out at the General Meeting. Therefore, the election of the Council Members should have been done at the General Meeting held in November 2022 in Melbourne, Australia, but due to some misunderstandings, this opportunity was overlooked. We apologize for this oversight. To rectify the situation and to smoothen things over reasonably, the Council would like to ask the members to grant the Council to take the following actions:

(i) to extend the current Council's term for one year until March 2024.

(ii) to have the election of the new Council Members for FY2024-2025 (i.e. April 2024 - March 2026) at the General Meeting scheduled on 28th August 2023 in Fukuoka, Japan.

If you have any opinions or suggestions, please write to Kenji Kajiwara, Secretary of the APCMfI, at kaji(at)imi.kyushu-u.ac.jp by 30th April 2023. If the above plan is agreed upon, then we shall call for the nominations for the Council Members in May.
