This is a list of International Congresses of Mathematicians Plenary and Invited Speakers. Being invited to talk at an ICM has been called "the equivalent, in this community, of an induction to a hall of fame."[1] (The current list of Plenary and Invited Speakers presented here is based on the ICM's post-WW II terminology, in which the one-hour speakers in the morning sessions are called "Plenary Speakers" and the other speakers (in the afternoon sessions) whose talks are included in the ICM published proceedings are called "Invited Speakers". In the pre-WW II congresses the Plenary Speakers were called "Invited Speakers". At the 1932 Zurich ICM there were precisely 21 Invited Speakers and a much larger number of approved speakers.[2])

Speakers[edit]

1897, Zürich[edit]

1900, Paris[edit]

During the 1900 Congress in Paris, France, David Hilbert (pictured) announced his famous list of 23 unsolved mathematical problems.[3]

1904, Heidelberg[edit]

1908, Rome[edit]

1912, Cambridge[edit]

1920, Strasbourg[edit]

1924, Toronto[edit]

1932, Zürich[edit]

Participants Zürich 1932

1936, Oslo[edit]

1950, Cambridge[edit]

1954, Amsterdam[edit]

At the 1954 International Congress of Mathematicians in Amsterdam, Richard Brauer announced his program for the classification of finite simple groups.[6]

1958, Edinburgh[edit]

Alexander Grothendieck (pictured 1970) in his plenary lecture at the 1958 Congress in Edinburgh outlined his programme "to create arithmetic geometry via a (new) reformulation of algebraic geometry, seeking maximal generality."[7]

1962, Stockholm[edit]

However it was really Ito's 1962 address to the I.C.M. at Stockholm which showed the possibilities for combining differential geometry and stochastic analysis; possibilities whose development did not really get underway until the very end of the 60's and early 70's.[8]

1966, Moscow[edit]

1970, Nice[edit]
