Special thematic semester at the CRM

Statement in support of Tuna Altinel

We the undersigned have decided to cancel our association with the Journées Arithmétiques in Istanbul, which we had been planning to attend as plenary speakers or as members of the Scientific Committee. We do this in order to freely voice our concern over the arrest of Tuna Altinel, a mathematician working in Lyon who is now jailed in Turkey for expressing his opinions and participating in acts of non-violent protest.

This arrest has drawn widespread concern from our professional societies:

Statement of the Société Mathématique de France,
Statement of the London Mathematical Society,
Statement of the European Mathematical Society,
Statement of the American Mathematical Society,

and has been brought up by Cédric Villani in the French National Assembly:

Intervention by Cédric Villani in the National Assembly.

We do not call for a general boycott of the conference, whose impact would mainly be felt by the local mathematical community. But we also feel that an event like the Journées Arithmétiques cannot proceed as if nothing had happened. Through our defection we wish to demonstrate that we stand in solidarity with Tuna Altinel, his family, and friends. At a time when human rights, freedom of expression and the rule of law are increasingly under siege throughout the world, we believe that passivity and indifference can only invite the further erosion of these basic rights.

Editorial Activities

I am currently on the editorial board of the following journals:

Commentarii Mathematici Helvetici, the main journal of the Swiss Mathematical Society.

Transactions of the American Mathematical Society.

Memoirs of the American Mathematical Society.

Annales Mathématiques du Québec, the main general mathematics journal in Quebec, now edited (for better and for worse) by Springer-Verlag.

Publicacions Matemàtiques, a mathematical journal published by the Department of Mathematics of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

Annales Mathématiques Blaise Pascal, a mathematical journal published by the Department of Mathematics of the Université Blaise Pascal in Clermont-Ferrand.

Comptes Rendus Mathématiques de la Société Royale du Canada, the main scientific publication of the Canadian Royal Society.

I encourage you to submit your number theory articles to these journals!
