D.5 Proceedings

All Plenary and Invited Lectures as well as the congress report will be published in the Proceedings of the International Congress of Mathematicians, Berlin, 1998. These Proceedings will appear as a special volume of DOCUMENTA MATHEMATICA (Journal der Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung), whose electronic version is available at or The editors of the Extra Volume are Gerd Fischer (Duesseldorf) and Ulf Rehmann (Bielefeld).

A printed version will be distributed to all Ordinary Members of the Congress (except for the student members). There will also be a free internet version under the above WWW addresses.

Volumes II and III of the ICM'98 proceedings will be distributed at the Congress

Thanks to the efforts of all persons involved, in particular, of Ulf Rehmann (who is doing all the technical editing) Volumes II and III of the ICM'98 proceedings went to the printer in the evening of Friday, July 17. The books will be printed in Bavaria and shipped to Berlin on August 17 so that we can distribute them to every ordinary ICM'98 member at the beginning of the Congress!

These two volumes will contain 160 of the 166 invited section presentations. They have 883 and 827 pages, respectively, and will be produced as hardcover books.

Volume I will contain the plenary addresses, the words of welcome at the Opening Ceremony, the laudationes and photos of the prize winners, the list of participants, and general information about ICM'98. Most of the material of Volume I can only be produced after the Congress.

We plan to finish Volume I right after the end of the Congress. This volume will be mailed to every Ordinary ICM'98 Member. (We will use the address under which you registered. So, please check it if you don't want the book parcel to get lost.)


Some ICM'98 participants are planning to spend a longer period in Europe after attending ICM'98 and do not want to carry the heavy books on their trip. We have contacted the Deutsche Post and several transportation companies and found that the Deutsche Post provides the cheapest offer.

Please contact the conference office H 2036; we will have a counter where you can deliver your proceedings, fill out an address label, etc. Your two proceedings volumes will then be shipped to your home address at a price of DM 20.-.
