It is a pleasure to announce that SeMA will organize the world congress of Applied and Industrial Mathematics "ICIAM 2019".After an agreement taken by the ICIAM executive board on May 2013 in Beijing, it was decided that the event would be hosted in Valencia, from the 15^th to the 19^th of July 2019.
SeMA, together with the executive board of the candidacy, composed by Tomas Chacon (Scientific Director), Rosa Donat (Local Organization) and Luis Vega (SeMA representative), would like to express its gratitude to the members of our society involved in the preparation of the candidacy. We would also like to extend our gratitude to researchers, organizations and institutions, both Spanish and from other countries, who have contributed to this success. Special recognition goes to Alfio Quarteroni, who accepted chairing the ICIAM 2019 scientific committee, as well as to the public entities dependent on the Generalitat Valenciana, the Spanish Government and the Spanish Royal House, for their support.
More details about the organization process of the ICIAM 2019 will be given during the next XXIII CEDYA- XII CMA congress, as well as in the SeMA website.
