    The year 2022 marks the 100th birthday of Olga Alexandrovna Ladyzhenskaya. To celebrate this event and honor her, the Ladyzhenskaya Prize in Mathematical Physics (OAL Prize) was established, with funding provided by the Simons Foundation. It will be awarded, in its inaugural edition, in a joint session of  (WM)² 2022 and the Probability and Mathematical Physics ICM satellite event.,

    (WM)² will take place virtually on July 1-2 2022

    With the recent tragic developments, and IMU's decisions about the ICM 2022 (see more information on IMU website), the second edition of the World Meeting for Women in Mathematics - (WM)^2 - becomes a virtual event taking place on July 1-2 2022. The (WM)² was originally planned to take place on July 5, 2022, the day prior to the ICM 2022.  The date changed to accommodate the Ceremony for the IMU Prizes (Fields Medal, Abacus Medal, Carl Friedrich Gauss Prize, Chern Medal Award and Leelavati Prize), taking place on July 5, 2022. The organizing committee is currently discussing the necessary changes, but hopes to keep the spirit and the program of the (WM)^2 as originally conceived.
