International Congress of Chinese Mathematicians
The International Congress of Chinese Mathematicians (ICCM) is a triennial event that brings together Chinese and overseas mathematicians to discuss the latest research developments in pure and applied mathematics. This premier congress is hosted by institutions in Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan on a rotating basis.
The first Congress was held in December 1998 at the Great Hall of the People and the Morningside Center of Mathematics in Beijing. The subsequent Congress took place in Taipei, Hong Kong and Hangzhou. In the Hangzhou Congress, there were over one thousand participants and nearly two hundred presentations on a broad spectrum of mathematical sciences, including number theory, analysis, geometry, statistics, biomathematics, and mathematical finances. In December 17-22, 2010, the Congress will return to Beijing.
Following the ICCM tradition, the winners of the Morningside Medal of Mathematics are announced in the first day of each ICCM. The Morningside Medal of Mathematics is awarded to exceptional mathematicians of the Chinese descent under the age of forty-five for their seminal achievements in pure and applied mathematics. Gold Medalists of 2007 are Jianqing Fan (Princeton University) and Xu-Jia Wang (Australian National University).
