EMS Logo

The Edinburgh Mathematical Society (EMS) was founded in 1883 and has since become firmly established as the principal mathematical society for the university community in Scotland. The aims of the EMS are the promotion and extension of the Mathematical Sciences, pure and applied, particularly in Scotland, and it draws its membership from all the Scottish universities and other educational institutions as well as from mathematicians in industry and commerce both at home and overseas.

We welcome new members – the Membership page contains information on how to join as well as details of the societies with which the EMS has reciprocity agreements. Mathematical sciences PhD students at the Scottish universities are entitled to free membership.
