The Third International Congress of Chinese Mathematicians will be held in Hong Kong from December 17 to December 22, 2004. The Congress is sponsored by The Morningside Group. It is organized and sponsored by The Institute of Mathematical Science and the Department of Mathematics at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. It is supported by the sister universitites in Hong Kong and also the Mathematics centers at Academica Sinica and Zhejiang University.
The International Congress of Chinese Mathematicians (ICCM) is a triennial congress hosted by institutions in Mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong in a rotating basis. The previous two congresses were successfully held in Beijing (1998) and Taipei (2001) with around 500 participants from all over the world. One of the highlights of the Congresses is the award of the Morningside Medals of Mathematics and the Chern Prize. Awardees are selected by a panel of international renowned mathematicians with the aim to encourage outstanding mathematicians of Chinese descent in their pursuit of mathematical truth.
The Third ICCM (ICCM2004) will be held in Hong Kong in December 2004. There will be 25 plenary lectures and special sessions on Mathematics topics. Besides the invited lectures, there will also be contributed and poster sessions. Morningside Medals of Mathematics and Chern Prize will be awarded in the opening ceremony. Please visit Programme for information.
The Congress Symposium: Developing Basic Science: Challenges for Universities will be held on 17-Dec-04. A panel of five university presidents in Hong Kong will examine the challenges their institutions face in promoting basic science education and preparing their students for the 21st century. Online registration for the symposium is available now. To make the congress a true worldwide gathering, all presentations will be given in English.
In order to enhance the Hong Kong students' motivation in learning Mathematics, Hang Lung Mathematics Awards was founded. ICCM strives to build up the culture in learning Mathematics in HK. Catching with the grand opening of ICCM 2004, Hang Lung Mathematics Awards Finalists were selected to attend the Project Defense session on Dec-16, 04. HKedCity will live broadcast the whole event in the internet. For more details on Hang Lung Mathematics Awards, please visit the HLMA website.
