ICM 2010

via Peter Woit at Not Even Wrong

The International Congress of Mathematics, held every four years, is scheduled to be held in Hyderabad in 2010.

Stories abound on the greatness of mathematicians of ancient India (zero, decimal system, quadratic equations, …) and of Ramanujan, but there has been a shortage of good mathematicians in India in recent years. Probabilists and statisticians, yes, but very few in other fields.

Personally, I hope this ICMR charges up some younger mathematicians to attack difficult problems, to be more productive, to be eager to train another generation to grow up into being good mathematicians.
