Speakers at the 7th European Congress of Mathematics announced

The next ECM will take place in Berlin in july 2016.   The plenary and invited speakers have been announced in the past two days, here are the lists, to which I’ve added links to homepages (URLs valid as of today) :

Plenary speakers

Invited speakers

Abel lecture : Yakov G. Sinai
Friedrich Hirzebruch Lecture : Don Zagier
Public lecture : Helmut Pottmann
Next Generation Outreach Lecture : Peter Scholze (a lecture for high-schoolers, what a great idea!)

And to track the balance of genders, that’s 30% women for plenary speakers (3/10), and 21% for invited speakers (7/33).
