Subject: Invitation to submit contributions to ICM2006

Dear Colleague,

We kindly remind you that the deadline to submit contributions to the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM2006) is March 30th, 2006.

Contributions may be proposed by registered participants in the form of short communications, posters or mathematical software presentations. Abstracts have to be submitted to the Local Program Committee through the Congress website before March 30th. The Local Program Committee will notify authors of acceptance or rejection of their contribution before May 30th. Abstracts of accepted contributions will be published in the abstract book of the Congress.


Short communications should be presented orally within up to 20 minutes, including discussion. Rooms for short communications are equipped with an overhead projector. Further instructions and a submission form are available at http://www.icm2006.org/scientificprogram/shortcommunications/.


Poster sessions provide pleasant interaction between colleagues, allowing discussions in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. The Local Program Committee strongly recommends scientific contributions in the form of posters and encourages participation in the POSTER COMPETITION.

Information on the Poster Competition is given at

and further details about submission of poster abstracts can be found at


The main purpose of the sessions on mathematical software is to give an overview of the state of the art on software topics, highlighting current research and its main developments.

Sessions will be devoted to presenting mathematical software systems or mathematical applications, either of general scope or focused on particular areas. Implementations of especially designed algorithms solving mathematical research problems of interest are also welcome. Mathematical originality, new solutions to relevant problems, or unusual fields of application will be greatly appreciated.

This is a scientific section of the Congress with no commercial aim. Further details about the submission procedure can be found at



We encourage you to register for the ICM2006 if you have not done so yet, and to keep visiting the Congress website for updated information. Notice that the deadline for regular regular registration is May 15th.

We look forward very much to welcoming you in Madrid from August 22nd to 30th, 2006.

Sincerely yours,

Manuel de Leon
Chairman of the ICM2006 Organizing Committee
