He pointed out that the list of ZURICH 1897 ✐ ✐ ✐ Ferdinand Rudio proposed at the Zurich 1897 congress to publish Euler’s collected works. ) ¨ participants of the congress should be seen as the starting point of an international directory of mathematicians, where one could find addresses and field of speciality of all mathematicians in the world (this idea had to wait until 1958 when the first World Directory of Mathematicians appeared). Rudio complemented this idea with the proposal of creating a biographical dictionary of current mathematicians, which would include portraits of the most important.
The number of women mathematicians attending also increased from four in Zurich to six in Paris. They were, as reported in the pro- 25 ✐ ✐ ✐ ceedings, Madame Ely Achsale from Poughkeepsie, New York; Madame A. Jolles from Berlin; Madame Olga Sabine from Moscow; Mademoiselle Elna Sarauw from Copenhagen; Madame Vera Schiff from St. Petersburg; and Miss Charlotte Angas Scott from Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.

There was also the need for an international literary journal for mathematics; the Jahrbuch u¨ ber die Fortschritte der Mathematik had been in publication since 1868, and the Repertoire Bibliographique des Sciences Math´ematiques since 1885, but they were slow in delivering the information on the developments of a science producing many more results at a much faster speed. He also mentioned the need for a general classification of mathematics that would help the bibliographic effort.
