to attend the International Congress of Mathematicians
BERLIN (Germany) 1998

The International Mathematical Union will award fellowships to young mathematicians to help them attend the ICM'98, Berlin, Germany, August 18-27, 1998. The grants, provided by the IMU Special Development Fund, will support travel costs and are intended primarily for young mathematicians from developing countries (not necessarily members of IMU).

The Local Organizing Committee of the International Congress of Mathematicians will provide a special allowance to the grantees of the travel grants to cover their registration, board and lodging in Berlin.

The age-limit for the grantees is 35 years at the time of the Congress. The candidates should present evidence of research work on post-doctoral level, and they should be able to benefit from the interaction with mathematicians from other countries attending the Congress.

In addition to the name and address of the candidate, the applications should contain a brief curriculum vitae, including date of birth, plus a list of publications (papers published or accepted for publication).

Applications may be sent directly to the IMU Secretary. Applications may also be submitted through the Committees for Mathematics, which in such a case will send all the relevant information about the candidates to the Secretary. Every member country of IMU has a Committee for Mathematics.

All applications should reach the IMU Secretary by January 1, 1998:
