Ladyzhenskaya Medal in Mathematical Physics
30 January, 19:04

2022, the year of the St Petersburg ICM, will mark the 100th birthday of Olga Alexandrovna. The National Committee of Mathematicians of Russia, St Petersburg State University, and, for the inaugural prize, the Organizing Committee of the ICM establish a new prize in honor of Ladyzhenskaya to be awarded for the first time at a special event dedicated to Ladyzhenskaya Centennial during ICM 2022.  The Ladyzhenskaya medal in mathematical physics will be awarded every 4 years to recognize revolutionary results in or with applications to mathematical physics. This includes any existing or future area of research in mathematical physics and neighboring fields of mathematics. 

CSR 2022 will be an ICM satellite
17 January, 16:58

Computer Science Symposium in Russia (CSR) is an annual international conference which covers a broad range of topics in theoretical computer science. CSR 2022 will be held in Saint Petersburg prior to the ICM and is one of the official ICM #satellites. The conference expects to attract over a hundred participants including world leaders in theoretical computer science as keynote speakers. The organizers plan to offer generous support to junior researchers presenting their work at the conference. The conference will publish refereed proceedings in Springer Lecture Notes on Computer Science and selected papers -  in a special issue of Springer“s Theory of Computing Systems. See the CSR 2022 website for more information.

The ICM satellite Dynamical Systems theory and applications, organized by the Higher School of Economics of Nizhny Novgorod and the Lobachevsky University, will be held in Nizhny Novgorod on  July 1-5, 2022.  Click the image/title for more info or here for a pdf version of this announcement.  Further information may be found on the conference web site

The Chebyshev grant
21 November 2019, 00:03

The Russian mathematical community is excited to welcome colleagues from all around the world to the ICM 2022 in Saint Petersburg! We want the mathematical communities from every part of the globe to gather at the ICM, and so the Local Organizing Committee is launching the Chebyshev grant, which will provide full support, that is, airfare and local expenses in St Petersburg, to 1000 participants from the developing countries. The application process and selection of candidates will be administered by the IMU Commission for Developing Countries (CDC) in collaboration the Local Organizing Committee. The details of the application process will be announced soon on the ICM website. 

The Kovalevskaya grant
18 November 2019, 16:23

The Local Organizing Committee of the ICM 2022 is seeking collaboration from all adhering organizations of the IMU, as well as international and national math societies, academies, and scientific funding agencies on a #funding  initiative aimed at boosting the participation of junior mathematicians in the ICM 2022. The funding initiative, the Kovalevskaya grant, will allow early career mathematicians to attend the ICM, thereby increasing the ICM potential to encourage and inspire young researchers worldwide.

Call for Satellites
29 July 2019, 12:49

The Organizing Committee of the ICM 2022 in Saint Petersburg is calling for proposals to hold satellite conferences, workshops and schools either before or after the Congress. As #satellites form an integral and crucial component of the ICM, the  organizing committee encourages an active response from the mathematics community in proposing and organizing satellites.

Olga Alexandrovna Ladyzhenskaya
8 July 2019, 20:00

2022, the year of the ICM, will mark 100th birthday of O. A. Ladyzhenskaya, who occupies a very special place in the history of St. Petersburg mathematics. The organizers of the ICM are planning to celebrate the life and the legacy of Olga Alexandrovna in a multitude of ways. 

We think it is very fitting to devote the first issue of ICM news to essays about OAL written by renowned experts, people who either knew her well or who were influenced by her in a transformative way. This collection contains essays by P. Daskalopoulos, by A. Vershik, by L. Kapitanski and N. Reshetikhin, and by D. Apushkinskaya and A. Nazarov.
