At its meeting in Helsinki, Finland, in July 2022, the 19th IMU General Assembly voted to accept the bid from the United States of America to host ICM 2026 and the 20th IMU General Assembly, with Philadelphia as venue for the ICM and New York City for the General Assembly.
ICM 2026 will be hosted at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia over 22–29 July 2026.
The 20th IMU General Assembly will convene at the Marriott Marquis Times Square over 19–20 July 2026.
Further information regarding ICM 2026 will be made available in due course.
The ICM Structure Committee is responsible for the structure of the Scientific Program of the ICM. In particular, it decides, among others, on the number of plenary lectures, the sections and their precise definition, the target number of talks in each section as well as other kinds of lectures, and the arrangement of sections.
The first ICM for which the ICM Structure Committee conducted its work was ICM 2022. A new ICM Structure Committee has now been constituted, which will be responsible for the scientific program of ICM 2026. The selection of the speakers will remain with the Program Committee.
Membership of the ICM Structure Committee for 2026 is as follows:
Terence Tao [Chair] firstname.lastname@example.org
Hiraku Nakajima [IMU President, ex officio]
The ICM Structure Committee is encouraged to interact with the mathematical community worldwide.
The IMU Executive Committee will appoint the ICM 2026 Program Committee (PC) at its meeting in March 2023. The chair of the PC is appointed by the IMU President. The PC will decide all speakers at ICM 2026. With the exception of the chair, membership in the PC is not normally made public until the Opening Ceremony of the ICM. The reason for this secrecy has been to protect the members of the committee from personal or political pressure from outside. Invitations to lecture at the International Congresses carry such high prestige that individuals or groups have always made efforts to influence the decisions of the committee.
The roles the Program Committee and the Organizing Committee play are described in the PC/OC Guidelines.
The ICM 2026 Program Committee Chair will be Claire Voisin, CNRS, Institut de Mathématiques de Jussieu-Paris Rive Gauche.
