The 2022 International Congress of Mathematicians volunteer program has started
Newswise – The International Congress of Mathematicians begins the selection of volunteers who will take an active part in the organization and work of the Congress. You can apply until March 1, 2022. The congress itself will be held in St. Petersburg from July 6 to 14 next year.
Anyone over 18 can volunteer. Volunteer applicants must be fluent in Russian and English – knowledge of other languages will be an added advantage. “We expect applicants who show curiosity and passion for mathematics, demonstrate commitment to the ICM 2022 volunteer program, and demonstrate excellent team skills,” report the event organizers. “We need good communication skills and knowledge of foreign languages. It will be necessary to communicate with the participants (many of whom do not know Russian), the organizers and other volunteers. Stress tolerance is also important, because even with the best organization and planning, something can go wrong, and in such situations one should not get lost and react quickly, ”adds Anwar Shahidi, Volunteer Coordinator.
Applications can be submitted from December 1, 2021 to March 1, 2022. After that, applicants will be interviewed (December 2021 to April 2022). In April, the volunteers will be divided into functional areas and teams, and trained (May-June 2022).

The International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) will be held in 2022 from July 6 to 14 in Saint Petersburg (Russia) by decision of the International Mathematical Union. The implementation of the Congress is part of the national project “Sciences and universities”. The holding of the Congress in Russia aims to strengthen the integration of international mathematical centers into the world scientific community and to attract new Russian and foreign partners to cooperate. It is the world’s most important meeting in the field of fundamental and applied mathematics and one of the oldest scientific congresses.
The first ICM took place in 1897 in Zurich (Switzerland). The aim of the ICM is to represent the widest possible spectrum of modern mathematics, including all scientific disciplines and schools of mathematics from different geographic regions, and thus to determine the future direction of mathematics. ICM lecturers are high-level mathematicians, able to present modern research trends to a wide audience. The IMC program includes a very wide range of activities including plenary and guest lectures, panel discussions, public lectures, public education activities, short presentations, poster presentations and much more.
