EWM in Bulgaria, 2018-2020

The Bulgarian section of EWM has 14 members, the half of them are or were working as Assoc. Professors or Professors at different Universities, the other half were teachers at schools in Sofia. Nearly all of the members (with the exception of 3 of them) are already in pensions and unfortunately their incomes are very low. For 2018 year 6 members paid their member fees, for 2019 year and for 2020 year till now – only three of them.


We make regular meetings at least two times in a year. Between the meetings via emails we exchanged much information about conferences, new positions and other news in the field of mathematics. Some of us took part in different scientific sessions and meetings at the Bulgarian Academy of Science, The Union of Scientists in Bulgaria and some Universities as well as in different scientific projects. In 2018 the coordinator Elena Gavrilova had the chance to take part in EWM General Meeting in Graz, Austria, thanking the corresponding  financial support.


This year we began with a meeting in January where most of the section members attended. At the beginning of March the situation in Bulgaria as in many countries in the world changed drastically due the corona virus. In the last months some of our members were and continue being very busy with the online learning that is relatively new for Bulgaria and we shared and discussed the problems in connection with it.
