The President of the IMU, Ingrid Daubechies, has written to the
Adhering Organizations, asking them to submit nominations for the IMU
awards listed below.

* Fields Medals - fields14-chair en mathunion.org
The Fields Medals are awarded every 4 years on the occasion of the
International Congress of Mathematicians  to recognize outstanding
mathematical achievement for existing work and for the promise of
future achievement.

* Rolf Nevanlinna Prize - nevanlinna14-chair en mathunion.org
The Nevanlinna Prize is awarded once every 4 years at the
International Congress of Mathematicians, for outstanding
contributions in mathematical aspects of information sciences.

* Carl Friedrich Gauss Prize - gauss14-chair en mathunion.org
The Gauss Prize is awarded once every 4 years to honor a scientist
whose mathematical research has had an impact outside mathematics -
either in technology, in business, or simply in people's everyday lives.

* Chern Medal Award - chern14-chair en mathunion.org
The Chern Medal is awarded every 4 years on the occasion  of the
International Congress of Mathematicians to an individual whose
accomplishments warrant the highest level of recognition for
outstanding achievements in the field
of mathematics.

* Leelavati Prize, sponsored by Infosys - leelavati14-chair en mathunion.org
The Leelavati Prize, is intended to accord high recognition and great
appreciation of the IMU and Infosys of outstanding contributions for
increasing public awareness of mathematics as an intellectual
discipline and the crucial role it plays in diverse human endeavors.

* ICM 2014 Emmy Noether Lecture - noether14-chair en mathunion.org
The ICM Emmy Noether lecture is a special lecture at an ICM which
honors women who have made fundamental and sustained contributions to
the mathematical sciences.

More details about each of these awards and the Noether lecture, as
well as lists of past laureates, can be found on the IMU Web site, at

Deadline for nominations:  December 31, 2012

The names of the chairs of the various prize committees and their
contact information can be found at:
The names of the other prize committee members remain confidential and
will be announced at the Opening Ceremony of ICM 2014 only.


The next International Congress of Mathematicians will take place in
Seoul, Korea, from Wednesday August 13, through Thursday August 21,
2014 and the Korean mathematical community is delighted to host the
congress for the first time in its history. As the premier conference
for mathematics, the ICM 2014 will be a major scientific event,
bringing together mathematicians from all over the globe and
demonstrating the vital role that mathematics plays in science and

We are thrilled to announce that the pre-registration process for the
ICM 2014 is on the way, and you are welcome to pre-register for the
congress. If you have not yet pre-registered, please do so by
following the simple instructions at our homepage:
http://www.icm2014.org/ ICM e-News with information about
pre-registration, scientific program, satellite conferences, financial
support program, family-friendly aspects of cultural program, and
practical information about visiting Korea etc. will be circulated to
the people who pre-registered for the congress. We strongly recommend
that you visit the homepage regularly for updated information on the
scientific program and ICM related activities.

To make the congress a true world-wide gathering, the Organizing
Committee places special emphasis on attracting mathematicians from
developing countries. Members of the Korean Mathematical Society fully
acknowledge the gracious support received from IMU and the
international mathematical community in the 70’s and 80’s, and hope
more countries can share the benefits. This has motivated the theme of
“Solidarity in Mathematics”, and the 1,000 mathematicians from
developing countries to be invited to Korea during ICM 2014, many of
whom would not have been able to visit an ICM otherwise, stand to
bring the ICM excitements and new knowledge back to their home
countries. The potential positive impacts their experiences will have
on future generations in their respective countries will be huge and
will surely linger for many years to come. Within the IMU, the level
of participation and activity of traditionally passive member
countries is expected to increase, and a closer collaborative and
harmonious mathematical community is likely to ensue.

The SEOUL ICM Travel Fellowship Fund was set up for this purpose, and
the fund is expected to receive over US$2 million by 2014 mainly from
global corporations. We are now working with IMU, especially with the
cooperation from IMU/CDC (Commission for Developing Countries), to
draft guidelines for this travel assistance program, and a call for
travel grant applications will be announced as soon as it is
available. Directed by the International Exchanges Committee, a
subcommittee of the ICM LOC, the application and selection procedure
will be activated, and we welcome our colleagues from around the world
to the congress, and very much hope that you will also be able to
attend it and savour some of the fine attractions that Korea offers.
