International Congress of Mathematicians, 2018

Dates: 1–9 August, 2018

Venue: Riocentro, Av. Salvador Allende, 6555 - Barra da Tijuca
Rio de Janeiro, Brasil

the first ICM in Latin America

Some of the world’s best researchers in Mathematics and related areas will come together to share knowledge and take part in various activities, from prizes and technical talks to outreach events. Participants will also be able to enjoy Barra da Tijuca, with its lush landscape of beaches, mountains and lagoons, and its manifold leisure options.

Since 1897, the International Congress of Mathematicians has helped shape the history of mathematics in the 20th and 21st centuries. 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 site has the information you need for planning your trip to ICM and enjoying your stay in Brazil, a country with many memorable attractions and far beyond what the conference has to offer.

See you in Rio!

The International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) is the largest international congress in the mathematics community. It is held once every four years under the auspices of the International Mathematical Union (IMU). The Fields Medals, the Nevanlinna Prize, the Gauss Prize, and the Chern Medal are awarded during the opening ceremony on the first day of the congress. Each congress is memorialized by printed Proceedings recording academic papers based on invited talks intended to reflect the current state of the science.
