Official statement of CMS regarding the russian invasion of ukraine and participation in the 2022 icm

The Canadian Mathematical Society is deeply concerned by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the issues that it brings forth. In light of recent events, the CMS has made a decision regarding the 2022 International Congress of Mathematicians, which is scheduled to take place in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Russia currently does not provide the environment required for the important exchange of mathematical ideas in the spirit of academic freedom. Therefore, the CMS will not be sending any official delegates to the ICM in Russia, nor does it support participation in the event.
