We expect these events to contribute greatly to the overall success and attractiveness of the ICM as well as be an integral part of the «Year of Mathematics» in Russia which the year 2022 will be. The satellite conferences are expected to contribute to the advancement of Russian mathematics in many different ways: by bringing internationally renown experts both to Saint-Petersburg and Moscow and to the regional scientific centers, by providing numerous development opportunities to the junior researchers from all over Russia and from abroad via special funding and events, such as summer schools and lecture series, associated with many of the satellites.
The Saint-Petersburg ICM will also continue on the new tradition which started in Brazil in 2018 by holding the (WM)2 meeting, «the World Meeting of Women in Mathematics», the day before the Congress. The (WM)2 in Brazil was a very successful and extremely popular event, bringing together for the first time over 700 female mathematicians from all over the World. The ICM 2022 is looking forward to building and expanding on that success.
