ICM 2018 Outreach Fund

ICM 2018 will be open to the participation of schools in a special program of activities designed for a general audience, including mathematical exhibits, workshops and games, and public talks by prominent mathematicians E. Ghys, I. Daubechies, C. Villani, T. Tokieda and R. Martins.

You can contribute to these activities by making a donation to the ICM 2018 Outreach Fund. All the money raised through this fund will go toward funding participation in the above program, thus furthering our goal of sowing the seeds for a mathematical future in Brazil.

To make a contribution, go to the ICM 2018 Registration Area. If you still don’t have an account, click on “I haven’t yet registered” to start the registration process. You will be given the chance to make a donation when paying for your registration.

If you already have an account, just log into the system, click on “Registration” and then on the symbol to the right of “Outreach fund”, and follow the instructions to make your donation.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends vaccination against yellow fever for all international travelers visiting Brazil. The procedure is in accordance with a national strategy adopted in order to prevent new cases of the disease. Brazil does not require the International Certificate of Vaccination and Prophylaxis to enter its territory, but the Ministry of Health recommends international travelers to update their vaccination situation at least 10 days prior to the travel.
