Public lectures are always very popular with both ICM participants and guests, drawing very large crowds. These are given by brilliant researchers who are also great masters of scientific communication. In St Petersburg, we plan that some of these lectures will be given twice — in English and in Russian, or with a Russian translation.
Many other outreach events are being planned, with a particular emphasis on application of mathematics in science and technology. These will take different forms, including special evening sessions, performances, film screenings, etc. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with suggestions or proposals concerning the outreach events at the ICM.
