ICM2022 Down Under @SMRI, 6–8 July 2022

Sydney Mathematical Research Institute (SMRI) Sydney, 6–8 July 2022, register here: https://mathematical-research-institute.sydney.edu.au/news/icm2022-down-under/.

The official International Congress of Mathematics 2022 will now take place as a virtual event. Sydney Mathematical Research Institute (SMRI) will attempt to create some of the usual spirit of the ICM.

The local event will feature talks by the Australia based invited speakers, presentations on the work of the Fields medallists, and interactive streaming of plenary and special session talks selected by the participants of ICM2022 Down Under.

Live talks will be given by Regina Burachik (University of South Australia, Section 16 – Control Theory and Optimisation) and George Willis (University of Newcastle, Section 2 – Algebra).

The ICM Down Under will conclude with a twilight talk by SMRI Director Geordie Williamson on Friday evening (8 July 20:00 AEST). The talk will be recorded and broadcasted by the London Mathematical Society (virtual ICM public lecture, 8 July 12:00 BST).
