The International Mathematics Congress (ICM) will be held on July 6-14, 2022. The International Mathematical Congress (ICM) is the most important meeting of pure and applied mathematics and one of the oldest scientific congresses. The first ICM was held in Zurich, Switzerland in 1897. ICMs are organized every 4 years by the International Mathematical Union in collaboration with host country organizers. In 2022, the Congress will be held in Saint Petersburg (Russia). Details and registration on the Congress website.
Traditionally, the ICM Opening Ceremony will include the Fields Medal, Gauss Award, Chern Medal, Leelavati Award and Lecture Award from Emma Noether, and the first IMU Abacus Medal, honoring groundbreaking contributions to computational mathematics and the mathematical aspects of computer science. For the first time, the Ladyzenska Medal in the field of mathematical physics will also be awarded. In 2022, Olga Aleksandrovna Ladyzenska celebrates the hundredth birthday, on this occasion the National Committee of Mathematicians of Russia, the State University of Saint Petersburg and the ICM Organizing Committee established a prize in honor of Ladyzenska, which will be awarded for the first time at a special event dedicated to the centenary of her birth. The Maidenska Medal in Mathematical Physics will be awarded every 4 years for fundamental performance in mathematical physics or applicable to mathematical physics.
The venue for ICM 2022 will be the Expoforum congress and exhibition center – the facility opened in 2014, hosting such significant events as the International Economic Forum in St. Petersburg. It is conveniently located near Pulkovo International Airport.
