Since 1897, the International Congress of Mathematicians has helped shape the history of mathematics in the 20th and 21st centuries. Hilbert's list of problems, the foundation of the International Mathematical Union, and the awarding of numerous important accolades are only a part of the legacy of ICM in the world of mathematics.
ICM 2018, in Rio de Janeiro, will bring together the world's best mathematicians for various activities, including Plenary Lectures, Invited Lectures and the Award Ceremony for the Fields Medals, the Nevanlinna Prize, the Gauss Prize, the Chern Medal, and the Leelavati Prize. As the first edition of the ICM in Latin America, as well as in the Southern Hemisphere, the ICM in Rio de Janeiro will give us an opportunity to reflect on the great progress of the region in terms of research and public awareness of mathematics.
It is a pleasure to invite you to attend ICM 2018 in Rio de Janeiro. This website has the information you need for planning your trip to ICM and enjoying your stay in Brazil, a country with many memorable attractions that go far beyond what the conference has to offer.
