# Santaló Lecturer

The *School of Mathematics*, in
collaboration with *Revista Matemática Complutense*, created
in 2002 the figure of **Santaló Lecturer**. Such a position is
occupied each year by an invited distinguished professor (proposed
by the Editorial Board of RMC and ratified by the Faculty Council)
asked to submit an article to the Journal and give a colloquium
lecture about it.
