2014 International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM): August 13-21 in Seoul, Korea
ICM is the largest international congress in the mathematics community. It is held once every four years under the auspices of the International Mathematical Union (IMU). The Seoul, Korea Congress will be held August 13-21, 2014. The USNC/Math is currently planning two events at ICM 2014.

For more information on registration and other conference details, please visit the Seoul ICM 2014 webpage.

International Congress of Women Mathematicians 2014: August 12 and 14
The International Congress of Women Mathematicians 2014 (ICWM 2014) is an associated meeting of ICM 2014. The congress will be held August 12th and 14th in Seoul, Korea. The purpose of ICWM 2014 is to bring together women mathematicians and supporters of women in mathematical sciences from around the world. Several members of the USNC/Math are involved in this event's organization. More details on the congress can be found on the ICWM 2014 website and the ICWM 2104 Overview Poster (PDF).

17th IMU General Assembly: August 10 to 11, 2014

Past Events and Activities

2013 Mathematical Congress of the Americas
The first Mathematical Congress of the Americas took place on August 5-9, 2013 at the Centro de Investigación en Matemáticas (CIMAT) in Guanajuato, Mexico. Mathematicians and students from North America, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean were in attendance. The purpose of the Congress was to highlight the excellence of mathematical achievements in the Americas and foster scientific integration worldwide. To find out more, please view the Congress website.

Workshop on "Mathematics of Climate Change, Related Natural Hazards and Risks"

The workshop on “Mathematics of Climate Change, Related Natural Hazards and Risks” was held at CIMAT in Guanajuato, Mexico, 29 July - 2 August 2013. The workshop brought together about 40 young researchers, mainly from Latin America and the Caribbean and a dozen distinguished scientists, each of which gave several lectures on a chosen topic. The workshop was part of the world initiative “Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013”. It was jointly organized by the International Mathematical Union (IMU), the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM), and the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). It was sponsored by the International Council of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) and partly funded by a grant from the International Council for Science (ICSU). It was supported by the ICSU Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean (ROLAC), the Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR), the World Climate Research Program (WCRP), the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and the Academia Mexicana de Ciencias, and CIMAT (Centro de Investigación en Matemáticas). The members of the Scientific Committee were Susan Friedlander (IMU), Ilya Zaliapin (IUGG) and Paul F. Linden (IUTAM). More details are available on the workshop's website.
