Du Invited to Speak at ICM2018
Qiang Du, the Fu Foundation Professor of Applied Mathematics, was invited to give a lecture at the next International Congress of Mathematicians. ICM2018 will take place in Rio de Janeiro from August 1-9, 2018 and "some of the world’s best researchers in Mathematics and related areas will come together to share knowledge and take part in various activities, from prizes and technical talks to outreach events."
According to Wikipedia,"being invited to talk at an ICM has been called the equivalent, in this community, of an induction to a hall of fame."
He follows in the footsteps of his SEAS colleague Maria Chudnovsky, who spoke at the last congress.
