IMU Prizes

The announcements and ceremonies for IMU awards, prizes, and special lecture are a vital part of the ICM program. The ICM opening ceremony will devote special attention to awarding the Fields Medal, which recognize outstanding mathematical achievement and is considered by many the highest honors in mathematics, and the first IMU Abacus Medal, which honors groundbreaking contributions in scientific computing and the mathematical aspects of computer science. Of no lesser importance are the Gauss Prize, Chern Medal, Leelavati Prize, and Emmy Noether Lecture.
