The 7th International Congress of Chinese Mathematicians (ICCM) was held from August 6 to August 11, 2016 in Beijing. This session of ICCM is jointly hosted by the Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science (AMSS) and the Morningside Center of Mathematics (MCM). About 1500 participants attended the ICCM 2016.
Winners of the Morningside Medal of Mathematics, the Chern Prize and the ICCM International Cooperation Award were announced at the ceremony on the first day of ICCM 2016. 5 Morningside Lectures were given at Tsinghua University, and about 30 plenary lectures and 150 invited lectures, which cover more than 40 topics of mathematics, were arranged at AMSS.
The International Congress of Chinese Mathematicians (ICCM) is a triennial event that brings together Chinese and overseas mathematicians to discuss the latest research developments in pure and applied mathematics. It is initiated by Professor Shing-Tung Yau and donated mainly by Morningside. ICCM is hosted by institutions in Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan on a rotating basis.
The first Congress was held in December 1998 at the Great Hall of the People and the Morningside Center of Mathematics in Beijing. The second Congress took place in Taipei in 2001, then in Hong Kong in 2004, Hangzhou in 2007, Beijing in 2010, and Taipei in 2013. In 2016, ICCM will return to Beijing again.
