The European Congress of Mathematics, held every four years, has become a well-established major international mathematical event. Following those in Paris (1992), Budapest (1996), Barcelona (2000), Stockholm (2004), and Amsterdam (2008), the Sixth European Congress of Mathematics (6ECM) took place in Kraków, Poland, July 2-7, 2012, with about 1000 participants from all over the world.

Ten plenary, thirty-three invited lectures, and three special lectures formed the core of the program. As at all the previous EMS congresses, ten outstanding young mathematicians received the EMS prizes in recognition of their research achievements. In addition, two more prizes were awarded: the Felix Klein Prize for a remarkable solution of an industrial problem, and--for the first time--the Otto Neugebauer Prize for a highly original and influential piece of work in the history of mathematics. The program was complemented by twenty-four minisymposia with nearly 100 talks that covered all areas of mathematics. Six panel discussions were organized, covering a variety of issues ranging from the financing of mathematical research to gender imbalance in mathematics.

These proceedings, which present extended versions of most of the invited talks delivered during the congress, provide a permanent record of the best of what mathematics offers today.
