This new volume in the CMI Monographs series gives a complete proof of the geometrization conjecture, which describes all compact 3-manifolds in terms of geometric pieces, i.e., 3-manifolds with locally homogeneous metrics of finite volume.

During his long mathematical career, Dan Quillen kept a set of detailed notes which give a day-to-day record of his mathematical research. His notebooks have been digitised in a project funded by CMI and made available to the mathematics community on the CMI website.

The CMI is running four Research Schools this summer in collaboration with the London Mathematical Society. The Research Schools are intended to introduce topical areas of mathematics to graduate students and young researchers through lectures by leading experts in the field.

David Platt of the Heilbronn Institute at the University of Bristol won the Gold Award in the Mathematics section of the 2014 'SET for Britain' poster competition at the House of Commons.

**Denis Auroux**, Professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and **Ivan Corwin,** Clay Research Fellow and Associate Professor at Columbia University, have been appointed to the Poincaré Chair for the academic year 2014/15.
