The first annual meeting of International Consortium of Chinese Mathematicians (ICCM) will be held from December 27th to December 29th, 2017 at Sun Yat-Sen University (SYSU), Guangzhou. This session of ICCM is jointly hosted by the Yau Mathematical Science Center (YMSC), Tsinghua University and the School of Mathematics, SYSU. It is expected that about 250 participants will attend the first annual meeting of ICCM 2017. The activities of ICCM annual meetings include academic talks, prize presentations, reports and discussions of ICCM matters.
Winners of the first ICCM 2017 Best Paper Award, 10 gold medals and 10 silver medals will be awarded on the first day of annual meeting of ICCM 2017. Following, there will be about 15 plenary lectures and 60 invited lectures to be arranged at SYSU. It will bring Chinese and overseas mathematicians together to discuss the latest research developments in pure and applied mathematics.
The establishment of ICCM was announced in Beijing in August 2016 by a large number of famous Chinese mathematicians. This organization consists of mathematicians of Chinese descent who are spread all around the world. The organization’s major function is to promote and advance mathematics within the extended Chinese community and to build good relationships between Chinese mathematicians and other mathematicians through out the world. The International Consortium of Chinese Mathematicians shall hold an annual meeting every year. For every three years, the annual meeting is expanded to a large meeting called The International Congress of Chinese Mathematicians. The location of the ICCM annual meetings will rotate among different cities in the Mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau.
