Praveen Chaudhari, former Vice President of Science at IBM's Thomas J. Watson Research Centre, in Yorktown Heights, New York (USA), will preside over his first Council meeting. He replaces J. Robert Schrieffer, professor at Florida State University's National Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida (USA). Schrieffer, a Nobel Prize winner, had chaired the Council since 1993.
