About the ICM

The International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) is the largest and most significant conference on pure and applied mathematics as well as one of the world’s oldest scientific congresses. The first ICM took place in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1897. ICMs are run every four years by the International Mathematical Union in partnership with host country organizers. The general structure for the ICM is determined by the ICM Structure Committee and the ICM Program Committee as described on the IMU site.

IMU Prizes

The announcements and ceremonies for IMU awards, prize lectures, and special lectures form a critical element of the ICM program. In particular, the Fields Medals, which recognize outstanding mathematical achievement and are considered by many the highest honors in mathematics, and the first IMU Abacus Medal, which honors groundbreaking contributions in scientific computing and the mathematical side of computer science, will be awarded at the ICM opening ceremony. Of no lesser importance are the Gauss Prize, Chern Medal, Leelavati Prize, and Emmy Noether Lecture. For more information, see the IMU website.
