The WGME was created in 1978. The group’s activity includes two major items: (1) participation to international meetings and (2) publication of special volumes. The group is open to everybody. The WG includes about 10 permanent members.
Following council recommendations reported during the Vancouver Business Meeting in 2008, the WGME officers have to move. There was a too long position as IMA-WGME officers for some of the officers.
The WGME was reorganized in 2010, following Professor Leonid Perchuk’s death.
Professor L. Perchuk contributed a long time with success to the activity of the WGME as a chair of this group. Several special volumes were published in the frame of the IMA-WGME activities following participation of WGME in numerous International meetings.
