Plenary lectures are invited one-hour lectures to be held without other parallel activities. The lectures should be broad surveys of recent major developments, aimed at the entire mathematical community. The ICM Program Committee has finished selecting plenary speakers and sectional invited speakers. All the invitations have been sent out by the Organizing Committee, and the following is the list of confirmed plenary speakers as of Aug 31, 2013.

All Plenary and Invited Lectures will be published in the Proceedings after the Congress, and Abstracts of all lectures and of all short presentations will be distributed free of charge to registered participant at Congress check-in.
