International Congress of Mathematical Physics (ICMP)
The International Congress of Mathematical Physics (ICMP) is organized
by the IAMP. The Executive Committee (EC) of the IAMP nominates the
International Scientific Committee (ISC) which is composed of six to
eight members. The ISC is chaired by the president of the IAMP or, if
the president declines, another EC member. One of the other ISC
members is chosen in consultation with the local committee. The local
committee can also nominate an advisory board to help in the
organization and to provide suggestions to the ISC. The EC decides the
number and the themes of the parallel sessions. Subsequently the ISC
nominates the plenary speakers and the session organizers.
The site of the next ICMP conference is decided by the EC after non binding
consultation of the general assembly. It is IAMP continuing policy to
avoid any form of discrimination and the EC is committed to ensuring
this in the selection of the ISC.
A bid to organize ICMP(n+1) has to be made not later than one month
before ICMP(n). A letter of application should be sent to the
Secretary, preferrably in electronic form. It should contain a
description of the proposed dates and facilities as well as a sketch
of the congress budget, in particular, the expected cost per
The next congress will be held in Geneva in 2021. The Young Researcher Symposium will be held on July 29-31. The ICMP on August 2-7, 2021.
