ICM 2022 Paris

ICM 2022 Paris | Living in France | Scoop.it
This website is dedicated to the promotion of the Paris candidacy to host the International Congress of Mathematicians 2022. It will be regularly updated with new content. Make sure you come back to learn more about our bid! We count on your support and vote!     Invitation to Paris ICM 2022 from  Emmanuel Macron, President of the French Republic English version French version   A message from Professor Mary Teuw Niane Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (Senegal) English version French version   Letter of invitation On behalf of the French mathematical community, we are delighted to invite the International Congress of Mathematicians 2022 to the city of Paris from August 9 to 17, 2022. Our bid to host this important event is supported by the French State and public organizations, by the French mathematical institutions and the main European mathematical societies. As a country with a rich mathematical heritage and a long tradition of hospitality for scientific gatherings, we believe we have certain obligations towards the international mathematical community. Hosting the ICM will provide a unique opportunity to make mathematics truly open to the world and to transfer knowledge to future generations. In this spirit we plan to organize a wide array of schools ranging over the entire mathematical spectrum before and after the ICM. These will be aimed at young mathematicians from developing countries. Financial support will also be made available to allow them to take part in these schools and in the ICM. We also plan to hold a large number of innovative public awareness activities in 2022 and beforehand. We very much look forward to welcoming our colleagues from all over the world to Paris, the place where Hilbert presented his list of problems more than a century ago. The entire French mathematical community stands behind this bid and is entirely committed to the success of ICM 2022! The Paris ICM 2022 bid committee
