Franka Miriam Brueckler is an assistant professor at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Zagreb (Croatia). She is active in popularisation of mathematics since 1998. and was awarded with the State prize for popularisation of science in Croatia for 2009. She has published over a hundred of popular articles and two popular maths books, held more than 50 public talks on maths, conducted about 100 workshops for different types of audience, and also contributed to maths popularisation by activities in street maths, appearances in television and radio, design of announcements and illustrations, … Besides popularisation of mathematics and the sciences, her main interests are history of mathematics, maths education and applications of mathematics in chemistry.
Betül Tanbay is a professor of mathematics at the Bogaziçi University in Istanbul, working in Operator Algebras. She is the founder of the Istanbul Center for Mathematical Sciences and the first woman president of the Turkish Mathematical Society.
Sylvie Benzoni-Gavage is a professor of mathematics at the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, in France, and the head of the Institut Camille Jordan. Her main research interests concern hyperbolic partial differential equations, surface waves, dispersive hydrodynamics, phase transitions and traffic flow. She used to be in charge of the press review for the French website Images des mathématiques, and was involved in the executive committee of the blog mpt2013.fr in connection with the Mathematics of Planet Earth initiative.
Andreas Daniel Matt works at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach. He studied mathematics and computer science and did his PhD in mathematics in machine learning at the University of Innsbruck and the University of Buenos Aires. Since 2007, he coordinates the project IMAGINARY, an international platform for open and interactive mathematics communication. He also curated the MiMa, museum for minerals and mathematics in Oberwolfach.
Krzysztof Ciesielski Krzysztof Ciesielski works in the Mathematics Institute of the Jagiellonian University, Kraków, Poland, where in 1999-2008 he was a vice-Head responsible for teaching. His main mathematical interest is topological dynamics. He has been a Correspondent for “The Mathematical Intelligencer” since 1987. He is an author of more than 200 articles and a few books presenting mathematics for general public (mostly written together with his friend, Zdzislaw Pogoda). For these books they have been given several prestigeous awards, including Great Dickstein Prize of the Polish Mathematical Society and Steinhaus Prize for popularizing science. In 1999-2008 he was an Associate Editor of European Mathematical Society Newsletter. Since 2012 he has been an Associate Editor of “Wiadomosci Matematyczne”, journal of the Polish Mathematical Society.

Ehrhard Behrends works as a professor for mathematics at Freie Universität Berlin. His fields of interest are functional analysis and stochastics. He has realized public awareness projects since many years. E. g., the web sites mathematik.de and www.mathematics-in-europe.eu were initiated by him. His column “Fünf Minuten Mathematik” in the German newspaper “DIE WELT” was later published as a book. It has been translated to eight foreign languages.
