Dear Bernoulli Society members,
This is the first issue of the Bernoulli E-Briefs, an electronic Bulletin of the BS intended as a device to share in brief manner latest news and relevant information with all members of our society, in tight collaboration with the Bernoulli News which is published twice a year and our website http://isi.cbs.nl/BS/bshome.htm. Thus, the character of the three communication channels would be complementary to each other. Bernoulli E-Briefs will arrive directly to the BS members' email inbox five times per year in February, April, June, September and November. It will include up to date brief information and will bring your attention to programmed events and their important deadlines, links to recently released official or co-sponsored publications of the BS, special funding opportunities, job offers, prizes as well as advances and summary notices of forthcoming articles in the Bernoulli News. All members are welcome to send information they would like to have posted promptly in brief manner. We hope you find it useful.
The editors, Carenne Ludena and Ramses H. Mena
