Scientific Program
The IMU Executive Committee has appointed the ICM 2014 Program Committee (PC) at its meeting in February 2011. The chair of the ICM 2014 PC is Carlos Kenig, (PCChairICM2014@mathunion.org), the Louis Block Distinguished Service Professor of the University of Chicago, and the PC has set up the structure of the scientific program of ICM 2014. 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 checkin.
As in previous years at the ICM, ICM 2014 will offer a wideranging, attractive scientific program consisting of plenary and invited lectures, short communications, poster sessions and other scientific activities.
The following subject areas have been chosen for ICM 2014 (section descriptions as well as the number of plenary and invited lectures to be given in each section):
ICM Proceedings Style Files
In order to maintain consistency of the style in the ICM Proceedings, invited plenary and sectional speakers are encouraged to process their electronic files using the style files of the ICM Proceedings. All necessary files, including examples, can be downloaded here.
