Cross your pis and dot your decimals before you come. This Congress has probably the best brains alive on earth.
The International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) is the largest congress in the mathematics community. It is held once every 4 years under the auspices of the International Mathematical Union (IMU). The Fields Medals, the Nevanlinna Prize, and the Gauss Prize are awarded during the Congress' opening ceremony. In the 2010 ICM, a new prize also will be awarded, the Chern Medal Award. Each congress is memorialized by a printed learned Proceedings recording academic papers based on invited talks intended to reflect the current state of the science.
The venue of the ICM-2010 will be the Hyderabad International Convention Centre. The Congress is structured in the traditional manner with the main activity being the Plenary and Sectional invited lecturers, the sectional talks being held in 7 or 8 parallel sessions. There will also be paper-reading and poster sessions, along with special events that include non-technical talks connected with promotion of mathematics, as well as cultural programmes. There will also be satellite conferences associated with the Congress, in different locations in the country.
