For more than a hundred years, the Euler Committee has published the works and correspondence of the mathematician Leonhard Euler (1707–1783). The last printed volume was celebrated with a ceremony in October.
At the occasion of the completion of the printed edition of the Opera omnia the Bernoulli-Euler Society, together with the Platform MAP of SCNAT, has organised a ceremony on October 28/29, 2022 in Basel.
This was also the transition to a new area: all works, letters and notebooks of Euler, the Bernoulli and their entourage are to be presented online and freely accessible on a modern digital platform. This immense task is now in the hands of the international Bernoulli-Euler-Committee, a body of the Bernouli-Euler Society.

Images of the Celebration
For more than a century, the Euler Committee of the Swiss Academy of Sciences has been publishing the works and correspondence of the mathematician Leonhard Euler (1707–1783). The publication of the final printed volume at the end of October also marks the beginning of the digital age, explains Prof. Dr. Hanspeter Kraft, President of the Bernoulli-Euler Society.
