On behalf of the International Congress of Mathematicians, we state that the ICM 2018 set to be held in Riocentro, Rio de Janeiro, will not be compromised by the Pavilion 3 fire on Sunday, July 30th 2018. The event will take place in three pavilions of the convention center, only Pavilion 3 has been affected.
A task force has been working on-site since Sunday in order to keep the schedule unaltered and to assess the best possible way to transfer the activities to a different pavilion – a replacement was immediately provided by Riocentro.
All adjustments and the necessary relocation of planned events are under way in direct collaboration with Riocentro and equipment providers.
See you all at the ICM 2018 Opening Ceremony!
