January 25 is Students' Day in Russia also known as Tatiana Day. The holiday is timed to the memorial day of the Christian martyr Tatiana of Rome, patron saint of students. In addition on this day in 1755, the oldest university in Russia Moscow State University was established. On this occasion, Russian President Vladimir Putin held an online conference with students of Russian universities and congratulated them. In addition, the President invited young mathematicians and their teachers to take part in the International Congress of Mathematicians, which will be held on July 6-14, 2022 in St. Petersburg.
Lyudmila Vsevolodovna Keldysh (1904-1976). Mathematician, Doctor of Physics and Mathematics (1941), Professor (1964).
The Organizing Committee of the International Congress of Mathematicians selected recipients of grants named after Pafnuty Chebyshev. All applicants received a response to the email address specified during registration on the ICM website with information about the status of the application.
A number of famous mathematicians will give their talks at the International Congress of Mathematicians which will be held in the summer of 2022 in St. Petersburg. Among them are several Russian mathematicians. We talked with one of them — Alexander Nazarov, Doctor of Physics and Mathematics, leading researcher at the St. Petersburg Department of the Steklov Mathematical Institute, professor at St. Petersburg State University.
According to the generally accepted chronology — that is, according to the Gregorian calendar - the year 2022 anno Domini began a couple of weeks ago. Even though this calendar is the most common in the world, it is not the only one. Not only different religious groups have their own calendars, but also different civilizations, some of which however no longer exist.

The London Mathematical Society has opened applications for ICM travel grants, as stated on the official website of the organization.
It's hard to believe that the son of a single mother, a poor student who got to disciplinary cell for his misdeeds always daydreaming with ridiculous fantasies would become the rector of Kazan University at the age of 34. It is even more difficult to imagine that he would challenge the scientific paradigm that has prevailed for many centuries and will not change his mind facing a barrage of criticism. But the young scientist did not just challenge the system, he won. His name was Nikolai Lobachevsky.
There is an opinion that mathematics unlike physics and biology has everything discovered and proven long ago. Stanislav Smirnov, the scientific director of the Chebyshev Laboratory of St. Petersburg State University, professor of Skoltech, Fields Medalist, and a member of the organizing committee of the International Congress of Mathematicians which will be held in St. Petersburg in 2022 disproved this point at the Congress of Young Scientists in the Sirius Science and Arts Park.
The first of December was the launch date of the ICM volunteer program, applications are now open. Everyone can apply and try to become a part of the Congress, the selection criteria for future volunteers can be found here. But what does this work mean for the volunteers themselves? We talked to the senior volunteers, who has already been selected, and now we are ready to share it with you.
On December 8, Sirius Educational Center (Sochi) held the grand opening ceremony of the Pythagorean Theorem installation. The installation is a modern 3D technological structure illustrating the geometry of the theorem. The purpose of the event is to increase the awareness and attractiveness of the upcoming International Congress of Mathematicians, which will be held on July 6-14, 2022 in St. Petersburg.
Recently, the Organizing Committee of the International Congress of Mathematicians in St. Petersburg announced the names of the invited speakers. There were several Russians among them. Today we talked with one of them — Yuri Gennadievich Prokhorov, Doctor of Physics and Mathematics, Chief Researcher and Professor of the V.A. Steklov Institute of RAS.
The International Congress of Mathematicians begins the selection of volunteers who will take an active part in the organization and work of the Congress. You can apply until March 1, 2022. The Congress itself will be held in St. Petersburg on July 6-14 next year.
Why can mathematicians, unlike biologists and physicists, still understand each other? What fields of science look the most promising today, and why would the great physicists of the early 20th century have failed to make their discoveries if they had been born a hundred years later? Mathematician Fedor Bogomolov, member of the ICM-2022 organizing committee, comments
The International Mathematical Union invites mathematicians professionally based in developing countries to apply for the Abel Visiting Scholar Program. The program offers the opportunity for a “research sabbatical” abroad. The applicants must have a PhD in Mathematics and be under 35 years of age. The size of the grant is 4,400 EUR (5,000 Dollars). You can find detailed information at the official site.
In July 2022, St. Petersburg will host the International Congress of Mathematicians, the world's largest scientific event in mathematics. The Congress will bring together outstanding scientists from all over the world. As the event comes closer, mathematics attracts more and more attention. For example, Nikolai Andreev from the Steklov Mathematical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, creator of the Mathematical Etudes project, spoke on November 19 at the “Science of the Future — the Science of the Youth” forum. It was hosted by the National University of Science and Technology “MISiS” together with Sechenov University and the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University. Here is the review of his talk about how the subway train works, what is the secret of the beautiful music sounds, and how to convince a child to take bitter medicine.
Recently, the Organizing Committee of the International Congress of Mathematicians in St. Petersburg announced the names of invited speakers. There were several Russians among them. Today we talked with one of them — Evgeny Feigin, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor of the Faculty of Mathematics of the Higher School of Economics and the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology.
