Historic IMU/ICM Digital Material: Proceedings, Videos, Books, Media Platform
This Web page is the entry point to digital historical material about the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) and the International Mathematical Union (IMU). A highlight is the collection of all articles that appeared in the Proceedings of the ICMs since 1893. IMU is grateful to R. Keith Dennis (Cornell University) and Ulf Rehmann (Universität Bielefeld) who have volunteered to digitize all proceedings volumes.
The IMU Media Platform (IMU MP) is an offer of the IMU to help showcase and illustrate the history and activity of the Union and its commissions and associated persons or events which support the idea of the worldwide network of mathematicians. IMU provides the platform for use by platform members to be able to install their own image objects in a database and to offer these images to other members for their use. More information on IMU MP.
This Web page was released in September 2010, the collection of historical digital material is expected to grow over time due to ongoing digitization projects.
