After the panel discussion a poster session was held at which panelists and approx. 20 different organizations and institutions will present posters with more information about their development efforts and organizations.

The poster session was about 45 minutes long immediately following the panel discussion in large open area next to room 101 D. The goal of the poster session was to share information about mathematical development activities with mathematicians at the ICM and to serve as a catalyst for interactions between mathematicians, organizations and funding agencies, similar to the MENAO activities in Seoul in 2014.

 

The following organisations and institutions have participated in the poster session:
