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 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.

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.
