OTTAWA, Ontario — The Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) is pleased to announce that Louigi Addario-Berry and Eyal Goren have been appointed as the incoming Editors-in-Chief of the Canadian Journal of Mathematics (CJM).

Addario-Berry works at the interface of probability and combinatorics, particularly in the field of discrete probability, while Goren specializes in the field of arithmetic geometry, including applications to cryptography and graph theory. Both are professors of mathematics at McGill University.

According to Karl Dilcher, former Chair of the CMS Publications Committee:

“For the success of a high-level scientific journal it is essential to have Editors-in-Chief who are internationally recognized in their fields. After 10 years of excellent service and leadership by Henry Kim and Robert McCann of the University of Toronto, we were delighted to appoint Louigi Addario-Berry and Eyal Goren of McGill University as new Editors-in-Chief of the Canadian Journal of Mathematics. Both are leading researchers in their fields who have the editorial skills and vision to steer this journal through the current climate of change and uncertainty in the publishing sector and at the same time maintain, if not increase, the journal's standing as one of the world's best mathematics journals.”

Addario-Berry received his Ph.D. from McGill University in 2006. He was Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Oxford and Professeur Adjoint at Université de Montreal, before joining the faculty at McGill University in 2009. He has held visiting positions at École Polytechnique, Paris and ENS Lyon, was Leverhulme Visiting Professor at Oxford, and Simons Visiting Fellow at Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge. He has previously served on the CMS Research Committee, Board of Directors and as Vice-President (Quebec region), and was the scientific director of the 2015 CMS Winter Meeting in Montreal. Addario-Berry was awarded the CMS Coxeter-James Prize in 2016.

Goren received his Ph.D. from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in January 1997 under the supervision of Prof. E. de Shalit. Following that he had held postdoctoral positions at Harvard (as a Rothschild Fellow), at Utrecht and at Concordia and McGill (as a CRM-ISM Postdoctoral Fellow), before joining McGill University as faculty in 1999. He was a Forchheimer Visiting Professor at the Hebrew University. Goren has previously served on the CMS Publication Committee and Board of Directors, and as an Associate Editor of the Canadian Journal of Mathematics (CJM) and the Canadian Mathematical Bulletin (CMB).
