Zone de description
The first meeting of international mathematicians was held in 1893 as part of a scientific and cultural program organized in conjunction with Chicago's World Fair. Encouraged by the success of the gathering, the participants moved to establish a congress on a regular basis. The initial meeting of the International Congress of Mathematicians was held in Switzerland in 1897 and has become a quadrennial event since then. Successive congresses have provided an important forum for the information exchange which has helped shape mathematical knowledge. In 1974, the ICM was staged at the University of British Columbia.
