Satellite Meetings

I am pleased to report that the ICM 2018 Satellite Events Subcommittee  
has approved a great variety of conferences and workshops of the  
highest scientific level as official ICM Satellite Meetings. The  
current, nearly final, list of sponsored events can be checked on the  
ICM 2018 website or by clicking here  

Satellite events comprise one of the most important scientific aspects  
of the ICM endeavor. These meetings foster an extended forum for  
researchers to share their exciting new contributions to the field and  
society, promoting meaningful collaboration among the international  
mathematics community, and ultimately enriching the ICM participants’  

Satellite meetings are also an endowment to the ICM host country, as  
local institutions are greatly benefitted by the visit of the world’s  
leading scientists, who are attracted by ICM’s prestige and momentum.  
Brazil is proud to host the first-ever ICM in Latin America and I am  
glad to inform that there will be satellite events all over the  
Brazilian territory, as well as in nearby countries such as Argentina,  
Mexico, Peru and Uruguay. This initiative is in compliance with the  
original Brazilian bid to host the ICM in Rio de Janeiro so as to  
benefit the entire Latin American mathematical community.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am delighted to invite you  
all to take part in the ICM celebration in Brazil and to attend one or  
more ICM Satellite Events.

Best regards, Eduardo Teixeira (Univ. Central Florida)
Chair of the Satellite Events Subcommittee
ICM 2018 Organizing Committee


** Chang and Atiyah to give the Noether and Abel Lectures at ICM 2018

The 2018 ICM Noether Lecturer is Sun-Yung Alice Chang for her leading  
contributions to harmonic analysis, geometric analysis, differential  
geometry and partial differential equations.

The 2018 ICM Abel Lecturer is Sir Michael Francis Atiyah for his  
fundamental work bringing together topology, geometry and analysis,  
and his outstanding contribution to building new bridges between  
mathematics and theoretical physics.

** Program at a glance

Our Scientific Program Subcommittee has the pleasure to release the  
"Program at a glance", a summarized version of all the activities of  
ICM 2018. Click here for more details  


** Exhibition
Academic institutions, publishers, software and IT corporations,  
teaching material companies and others can showcase their products at  
ICM 2018 Exhibiting Hall.

In order to have a stand you must complete the Exhibitor Form, which  
is available for download at the Sponsor/Exhibitor menu on the website.

The Form must be filled, signed and sent to exhibition en icm2018.org  
(mailto:exhibition en icm2018.org) , mentioning the number of the booth  
you would like to hire.

For any further information please contact us by e-mail or visit  

** Receptions
Scientific societies and organizations that wish to host receptions at  
ICM 2018 should contact our Program Subcommittee  
(reception en icm2018.org) to place a reservation.

We expect to have a complete briefing package with the catering and  
ballroom pricing options by the end of February 2018.

Reservation requests must indicate the preferred dates, period  
(breakfast – 7AM-8:30AM / lunch - 11:50AM-1:30PM / cocktail –  
7PM-10PM) and a prospective number of guests.

Given the limited number of ballrooms available to host such social  
events, priority will be given to early requests.


The list of the Open Arms program grantees has just come out
The Organizing Committee has just published the list (Open Arms Grants  
(http://www.icm2018.org/portal/en/open-arms-grants?utm_source=ICM2018+%E2%80%93+DEZ&utm_campaign=1c5481080a-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2017_12_15&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_aa373e390f-1c5481080a-129190953) ) of grantees to receive financial support to attend ICM  

All Open Arms grantees must complete their registration and pay the  
registration fee by March 27, 2018: failure to do so will result in  
cancellation of the grant and the corresponding resources being  
assigned to an applicant on the “waiting list”.

There were 1.565 valid applications, as follows: Asia and Pacific =  
903, Africa = 280, Eastern Europe = 138, Latin America = 244. The four  
regional panels were asked to base their evaluations on academic  
merit, with a special attention to diversity, including gender balance.

Overall, there are 630 travel grants being awarded, as follows: Asia  
and Pacific = 200 (60 female), Africa = 130 (44 female), Eastern  
Europe = 100 (49 female), Latin America = 200 (76 female). In all four  
regions the proportion of women among the grantees either matches or  
surpasses the percentage of female applicants.

Open Arms is sponsored by IMPA – Instituto de Matemática Pura e  
Aplicada and SBM – Sociedade Brasileira de Matemática, with a generous  
contribution from IMU – International Mathematical Union.


Remain up to date with our deadlines for early registration, abstract  
submission and financial support.
