The volunteer program of the International Congress of Mathematicians 2022 has started

The International Congress of Mathematicians begins the selection of volunteers who will take an active part in the organization and work of the Congress. You can apply until March 1, 2022. The Congress itself will be held in St. Petersburg on July 6-14 next year.

Anyone over the age of 18 can become a volunteer. Candidates for volunteers should be fluent in Russian and English – knowledge of other languages will be an additional advantage. “We expect candidates who show curiosity and passion for mathematics, demonstrate commitment to the ICM 2022 volunteer program, and show excellent team skills,” the organizers of the event report. “We need good communication skills and knowledge of foreign languages. It will be necessary to communicate with participants (many of whom do not know Russian), organizers, and other volunteers. Stress tolerance is also important because even with the best organization and planning, something can go wrong. In such situations, you need not get lost and react quickly,” adds Anwar Shahidi, volunteer coordinator.

The application is now open and will last until March 1, 2022. After that, the candidates will be interviewed (December 2021 to April 2022). In April, the volunteers will be distributed in functional areas and shifts and trained (May-June 2022).

In addition, volunteers will receive branded equipment and insurance for the duration of the Congress, and their participation in the event will be confirmed by official letters and certificates. “Being a volunteer of the ICM 2022 is a unique opportunity for self-improvement and gaining invaluable experience,” the organizers say.


Skoltech is the general academic partner of the International Congress of Mathematicians. The Congress will be held on July 6-14, 2022, in St. Petersburg, according to the decision of the International Mathematical Union, and its hosting is included in the national project “Science and Universities”. The Congress intends to enhance the integration of Russian mathematical centers into the international scientific community and help attract new Russian and foreign partners to cooperate. ICM is the most important meeting in fundamental and applied mathematics worldwide and one of the oldest scientific congresses.
