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.
