The IMU and International Congresses (1958-1962)
According to the Statutes, one of the objectives of the IMU is to assist and support International Congresses of Mathematicians. After a modest start in this direction in the years 1952-1958, there was significant development after the 1958 General Assembly. Mathematical programs of the ICMs became the responsibility of the Union. At the same time, the IMU was authorized to award Fields Medals. Formal rules were ratified by the 1962 General Assembly in Sweden. These events are milestones in the history of the Union.
