Conference Format

In principle, ICIAM 2023 will be held in a hybrid conference format. If the situation demands, we will switch the conference format to an online format. Even if that is the case, ICIAM 2023 will not reimburse any expense including travel expenses and hotel charges of participants.

Congress Venue

Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan

Waseda University is the largest research university in Japan. It is also one of the oldest universities, founded in 1882 by Shigenobu Okuma, who later became Prime Minister of Japan. The Okuma Auditorium was built in 1927 after his death in commemoration of his achievements. This auditorium is the symbol of Waseda University now. We plan to use 14 university buildings for ICIAM 2023. The buildings of Waseda University’s main campus are located close together, providing easy access from one building to another. A significant amount of signage and student volunteers will be used to assist the participants at the ICIAM venue.


The combination of these rooms and halls will enable us to hold at least 70 parallel sessions during the Congress, and all the facilities are designed to be barrier-free for guests with disabilities. Lunch is to be taken at restaurants around the congress venue, or at the cafeterias of Waseda Campus. Cafeterias will be able to cater to those with dietary restrictions and/or special needs.

Another attractive point of the venue is its convenient access from the metro system. The “Waseda” metro station is just a 5-minute walk from the Congress venue and the trains run every 5 minutes, from 5:00 am to midnight.

Accessibility is also good in Tokyo. Most of the metro and train stations are easily accessible for the disabled and most of them are equipped with either elevators or lifts. The “Waseda” metro station has both elevators and lifts. In addition, smart cards “Suica” and “Pasmo” can be used on almost all rail and bus lines in the Tokyo metropolitan area, and are accepted by a growing number of taxis. “Suica” IC cards are available for purchase at JR stations, while “Pasmo” cards are available at subway, private railway stations, and bus depots. You can also use these cards for shopping as electronic money at a constantly increasing number of registered shops.


The former president of Waseda University has kindly accepted our request for using, without a fee, any buildings with various modern conference equipment at the Waseda Campus. He hopes that this offer will assist the advancement of applied mathematics and industrial mathematics.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government also has funds for supporting international congresses. The Faculty of Science and Engineering, Waseda University, where S. Oishi was the senior Dean, and the Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government have signed a comprehensive partnership agreement. Based on this agreement, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government has already decided to provide financial support worth approximately US$300,000 for ICIAM 2023 on the condition that it be held at Waseda University with a certain number of foreign participants. Furthermore, support of complimentary cultural programs for 120 persons and half-day city tours for 800 persons will be offered.

Prize and Invited Lectures

2023 ICIAM Prizes: recipients and committees

The 2023 ICIAM prizes will be awarded at the Opening Ceremony of the International Congress for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, ICIAM 2023, to be held in Tokyo (Japan), on August 20-25, 2023. The Prize Committee was chaired by Ya-xiang Yuan, the President of ICIAM. Other members were:

  • Gang Bao (Chair of Maxwell Prize Subcommittee).
  • Alfredo Bermudez (Chair of Pioneer Prize Subcommittee).
  • Nira Chamberlian (Chair of Industry Prize Subcommittee).
  • Leah Edelstein-Keshet (Chair of Lagrange Prize Subcommittee).
  • Lois Curfman McInnes (Chair of Su Buchin Prize Subcommittee).
  • Kim-Chuan Toh (Chair of Collatz Prize Subcommittee).

ICIAM Collatz Prize

The 2023 ICIAM Collatz Prize is awarded to Maria Colombo (EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland) for her fundamental contributions to the regularity theory and the analysis of singularities in elliptic PDEs, geometric variational problems, transport equations, and incompressible fluid dynamics.

The Collatz Prize was established to provide international recognition to individual scientists under 42 years of age for outstanding work on industrial and applied mathematics. It was created on the initiative of GAMM, and first awarded in 1999. Carrying a cash award of USD 5000, the Collatz Prize is presently funded by GAMM.

Maria Colombo was born in 1989 in Luino, Italy. She received her Bachelor and Master degrees in Mathematics from University of Pisa, and PhD degree from Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa in 2015. After holding positions at the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich, she joined EPFL Lausanne as an Assistant Professor in 2018, where she is now a Full Professor of Mathematics. Maria Colombo has received several prizes and awards that include the 2022 Peter Lax award, the 2019 Bartolozzi Prize from the Italian Mathematical Union, and the 2015 Michele Cuozzo Prize for her PhD thesis.

Maria Colombo has made substantial contributions to the regularity theory and the analysis of singularities in elliptic PDEs, transport equations, and incompressible fluid dynamics. In particular, she has made significant advances in the understanding of the long-time behavior of solutions to fundamental equations in fluids such as Euler and Navier-Stokes equations. In her joint work with Buckmaster and Vicol, they showed the existence of badly behaved weak solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations which are smooth except for a singular set of times of Hausdorff dimension less than 1. Very recently, her joint work with Albritton and Brue’ constructed for the first time nonunique Leray-Hopf solutions of the forced Navier-Stokes equations. Together with her student Haffter, they also proved that the singular set of Leray-Hopf weak solutions of the supercritical SQG (surface quasi-geostrophic) equation is contained in a compact set in spacetime whose Hausdorff dimension is also estimated. Maria Colombo has several works (with Spolaor, Edelen and Velichkov) on the structure of singularities for solutions to the obstacle problem and minimal surfaces. Their work on the log-epiperimetric inequality in GAFA is a beautiful discovery that has sparked subsequent major developments in the area.

The subcommittee for ICIAM Collatz Prize was:

  • Kim-Chuan Toh (National University of Singapore, Singapore), Chair.
  • Gregoire Allaire (Ecole Polytechnique, France).
  • Ricardo Cortez (Tulane University, USA).
  • Hiroshi Suito (Tohoku University, Japan).

ICIAM Maxwell Prize

Awarded to Weinan E for his seminal contributions to applied mathematics and in particular on analysis and application of machine learning algorithms, multi-scale modeling, the modeling of rare events and stochastic partial differential equations.

The Maxwell Prize was established to provide international recognition to a mathematician who has demonstrated originality in applied mathematics. It was created on the initiative of the IMA (with the support of the James Clerk Maxwell Foundation), and first awarded in 1999. Carrying a cash award of USD 5000, the Maxwell Prize is presently funded by the IMA and by the James Clerk Maxwell Foundation.

Weinan E is the director of the Center for Machine Learning Research at Peking University and professor in the Department of Mathematics and Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics at Princeton University. He obtained his undergraduate degree at the University of Science and Technology of China in 1982, his master’s degree at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1985, and his Ph.D. at the University of California, Los Angeles in 1989. Professor E was the recipient of the ICIAM Collatz Prize in 2003, the Peter Henrici Prize of SIAM and ETH in 2019, and the Gordon Bell Prize from ACM in 2020. He has been invited to deliver a plenary lecture at ICM 2022. Professor E was elected fellow of the Institute of Physics in 2005, fellow of SIAM in 2009, member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2011 and fellow of the American Mathematical Society in 2012.

Professor E’s research work draws inspiration from various disciplines of sciences. He has made profound impact in fluid dynamics, chemistry, material sciences, and soft condensed matter physics. He has contributed to the resolution of many long standing scientific problems such as the Burgers turbulence problem, and the Cauchy-Born rule for crystalline solids. A common theme of his work is to bring clarity to scientific issues through mathematics. A second theme is multi-scale and/or multi-physics modeling. He has made fundamental contributions to building the mathematical framework and finding effective numerical algorithms for modeling rare events. He has also made original contributions to multiscale analysis and algorithms through his work on heterogeneous multi-scale methods, multi-scale stochastic simulation algorithms, complex fluids and homogenization problems. In addition, Professor E and collaborators made fundamental contributions to the analysis and numerical algorithms of density functional theory, including studying its continuum limit and developing the PEXSI algorithm. More recently, Professor E pioneered the development of deep learning-based algorithms in scientific computing and computational science. His work on solving high dimensional stochastic control problems using deep learning-based algorithms in 2016 was the first paper on deep learning-based algorithms for high dimensional problems in scientific computing. He and collaborators have developed deep learning-based methodologies in molecular dynamics and quantum mechanics, and he pioneered the dynamical systems and control theory approach to machine learning and maximum principle-based algorithms for deep learning.

ICIAM Pioneer Prize

Awarded to Leslie Greengard (Courant Institute, New York University and Flatiron Institute, Simons Foundation) for his pioneering work on fast algorithms including the fast multipole method (one of the top-ten algorithms of the 20th century), fast Gauss transform, and fast direct solvers; and for the development of innovative high-order, automatically adaptive algorithms for differential and integral equations.

Leslie Greengard was born in London, England, but grew up in the United States in New York City, Boston, and New Haven. He holds a B.A. in mathematics from Wesleyan University (1979), an M.D, from the Yale University School of Medicine (1987), and a Ph.D. in computer science from Yale University (1987).

From 2006-2011, Greengard was director of the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, an independent division of the New York University (NYU) and is currently a professor of mathematics and computer science at this prestigious Center. He is also director of the Center for Computational Mathematics at the Flatiron Institute, a division of the Simons Foundation. He formerly served as the director at the Center for Computational Biology in the Flatiron Institute.

Professor Greengard has had a profound impact on computational mathematics. The Fast Multipole Method (FMM), developed together with Vladimir Rokhlin, is one of the top ten algorithms of the 20th century. Its impact has been further enhanced by complementary techniques such as

  • Fast Gauss transforms for the rapid computation of Gauss convolution over unstructured point sets;
  • Fast algorithms and implementations for three types of non-uniform Fourier transforms;
  • Fast direct solvers for non-oscillatory and oscillatory integral equations based on the idea of recursive skeletonization.

These contributions have enabled simulations that would otherwise be completely intractable in áreas such as electromagnetics, acoustics, computational biology, fluid and solid mechanics, heat transfer, quantum mechanics, and biomedical imaging.

Besides its immediate impact for solving fast summation problems that arise directly in computational simulations, the other dramatic impact of the FMM was that it unlocked integral equation formulations as a tool for mathematical modeling of large scale problems. Leslie has spearheaded a decades long effort to extend integral equations techniques to apply to not only elliptic problems, but also parabolic ones like the heat equation, or the Navier-Stokes equations.

Professor Greengard is a prolific writer with more than 120 professional articles. Many of these articles are highly cited and some of his review articles have strongly influenced the field of applied and computational mathematics.

He was an invited speaker for the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) in 1998 and an invited speaker for the International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) in 1999. He gave the prestigious von Neumann Lecture of SIAM in 2014. He has been elected to National Academy of Sciences (USA), National Academy of Engineering (USA), and American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Prof. Albert Cohen

My early research works (from my PhD of 1990, supervised by Yves Meyer, until 1998) were concerned with the development of the theory of wavelet bases in relation with algorithms used in signal and image processing, or in computer aided geometric design. One significant achievement was the derivation, together with Ingrid Daubechies and Jean-Christophe Feauveau, of biorthogonal wavelet bases which are used in the state of the art image compression standard JPEG 2000.

Since 1998, my research is oriented in various applicative directions, with as a common denominator its theoretical foundations in nonlinear approximation theory and harmonic analysis. In particular, it has led to the development and analysis of adaptive and sparsity-based numerical methods in various application contexts such as (i) data compression, (ii) statistical estimation and learning theory or (iii) discretizations of partial differential equations.

I am often joining forces with my colleagues Wolfgang Dahmen and Ronald DeVore. Some of our most significant results are concerned with the analysis of adaptive methods for PDE’s, the space BV, greedy algorithms, and statistical learning theory. A topic of particular interest the present time is high-dimensional approximation problems arising in learning theory and in the numerical treatment of parametric and stochastic PDE’s.

My current research is in particular concerned with problems that involve a very large number of variables, and whose efficient numerical treatment is therefore challenged by the so-called curse of dimensionality, meaning that computational complexity increases exponentially in the variable dimension. Such problems are ubiquitous in an increasing number of applicative areas, among which statistical or active learning theory, parametric and stochastic partial differential equations, parameter optimization in numerical codes, with a high demand from the industrial world of efficient numerical methods. Central scientific objectives in this context are (i) to identify fundamental mathematical principles behind overcoming the curse of dimensionality, (ii) to understand how these principles enter in relevant instances of the applications described above, and, (iii) based on these principles to develop broadly applicable concrete adaptive numerical strategies that benefit from such mechanisms.

This research has been supported by the Advanced ERC grant BREAD (Breaking the Curse of Dimensionality in Analysis and Simulation) awarded in 2014.

Prof. Xiaoyun Wang

Xiaoyun Wang is a mathematician and cryptographer. She is a C. N. Yang Professor in Institute for Advanced Study, Tsinghua University, the Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences and the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR) fellow. Xiaoyun Wang is well-known for her research on hash functions. Hash functions are the key technique of many cryptographic applications such as digital signatures, integrity verifications, password validations and blockchains. A hash function generates a short digest (digital fingerprint) of the input message. Collision-resistance is one of three security properties of cryptographic hash functions (the others are preimage resistance and second-preimage resistance). Xiaoyun Wang developed the bit-based cryptanalysis theory, and gave the collision attack on five dedicated hash functions including widely deployed MD5 and SHA-1. In response to SHA-1 attack, the US National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) recommended the replacement of SHA-1 by SHA-2 hash function family and announced a 5-year project to design the new hash function standard SHA-3. She was in charge of designing SM3 cryptographic hash function, as the Chinese standard, which has been deployed widely in financial, transportation, state grid and other important economic fields in China. In October 2018, SM3 officially became one of the ISO/IEC standards of new generation hash functions. She also analysed some cryptographic primitives with keys, including message authentication codes, symmetric ciphers and authenticated encryption schemes, and achieved very important results on HMAC-MD5, MD5-MAC, SIMON, Keccak-MAC, etc. Since 2006, she has been focusing on post-quantum public-key cryptography, and gave innovative results in lattice-based cryptography, including a two-level heuristic sieve algorithm for general lattices and the design of practical lattice-based algorithms with tight security.

His title for the invited lecture in ICIAM 2023 is “Mathematical sciences for realization of origami engineering aided land / sea / air self-driving car with intelligence”. The lecture will consist of origami engineering, machine learning, optimal control and control of plural eigenfrequencies. In origami engineering, it will be shown the most splendid Japanese Kirigami honeycomb which receives very much attention because it is the best treasure trove to produce metamaterials. As far as machine learning, it will be shown his own technology FQHNN(Fuzzy Quantification method aided Holographic Neural Network) which has causal information unlike CNN(Convolutional Neural Network) which leads the third generation of machine learning. And in optimal control, it will be shown also his own method which is only one real-time optimal control method. The so-called optimal control is not used in the real car because Pontryagin’s maximum principle gives the nonlinear equation which cannot be solved in real time. He has noticed the analogy of the new optimal control theory and the nature of the solution of parabolic equations for the first time and this has contributed to pass this problem. As far as control of plural eigenfrequencies, it is very difficult to be applied the conventional topology optimization. He has developed a new high speed and high accuracy topology change method for ride quality improvement and elimination of anxiety due to the absence of the driver in the self-driving car from observations of strain and dynamic energy distributions of each eigen frequency mode. He is mobilizing with his lab members all of these technologies to successfully create an origami engineering aided land / sea / air self-driving car with intelligence. Here he will discuss the mathematical backbones for these techniques which successfully develop the dream land / sea / air self-driving car with intelligence.

The Olga Taussky-Todd Lecture

The Olga Taussky-Todd Lecture at ICIAM 2023

The International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics has selected Professor IIse C.F. Ipsen of North Carolina State University, USA, to deliver the Olga Taussky-Todd Lecture at the International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics, ICIAM 2023, in Tokyo, Japan. This Congress is the most important international event in applied and industrial mathematics, held once every four years under the auspices of the International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

Ilse Ipsen is an applied mathematician whose pioneering work, from the outset, has been aimed at advancing the foundations and applications of numerical linear algebra. Her publications and presentations are distinguished by crystal clear exposition and exceptional attention to detail.

Ilse Ipsen’s early work was at the forefont of designing matrix algorithms for implementation on VLSI special purpose architectures as well as general purpose parallel machines. She has worked on inverse iteration for computing eigenvectors; solution of nonsymmetric linear systems via Krylov methods; perturbation theory for linear systems; and eigenvalue and singular value problems with application to nonlinear problems. She established the class of multiplicative perturbations which have become instrumental in the analysis of high accuracy matrix computations; and established an algorithmic classification that lead to the development of high accuracy rank revealing QR algorithms.

Ilse Ipsen is well known for her work on the Google PageRank algorithm, often described as “the world’s largest matrix problem”. In collaboration with physicists, she tackled the notoriously difficult numerical computation of characteristic polynomials, which are required in nuclear lattice simulations and the study of fermions.

More recently, she has been instrumental in introducing probability theory and statistics into numerical linear algebra for: the design and analysis of fast randomized least squares/regression algorithms in the context of large-scale data science problems; statistical roundoff error analysis for realistic bounds in the context of emerging mixed and low precision processors; and probabilistic numeric linear solvers that generate probability distributions for propagating numerical errors through computational pipelines.

Professor Ipsen received a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany; and a Ph.D. from The Pennsylvania State University, USA, both in Computer Science. After 10 years on the Computer Science faculty at Yale University, she is now a Professor of Mathematics at North Carolina State University, USA.

Calls for Minisymposia, Contributed Talks and Others

Call for Minisymposia

What is a Minisymposium

A minisymposium is composed of one or a few sessions (up to three sessions) of coordinated presentations on a single topic of interest and importance in industrial and applied mathematics. Each session within a minisymposium should include four presentations in two hours. Each speaker should be allotted 25 minutes for their presentation, with an additional 5 minutes for discussion.

An “industrial minisymposium” is a form of a minisymposium whose main objective is to visualize the current situation/state of industrial mathematics transfer around the world through the presentation of successful real-world collaborations with industry. The structure of an industrial minisymposium is the same as that of a standard minisymposium. For details, see the section “Industrial Minisymposia”.

Prospective minisymposium organizers are asked to submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (not to exceed 100 words), and a list of speakers and titles of their presentations, using the online submission form at the ICIAM 2023 webpage: https://iciam2023.org/1225

The Local Scientific Program Committee will referee all minisymposium proposals. Upon acceptance of the proposal, each minisymposium speaker will be asked to submit a 75-word abstract.

To ensure balance, ICIAM 2023 prefers that a single individual not be the organizer of more than one minisymposium. In addition, ICIAM 2023 discourages minisymposia in which most of the speakers come from the same organization or if all co-authors on the papers being presented in a minisymposium are from the same organization.

Important Dates

All deadlines are at midnight AoE (Anywhere on Earth).

  • Submissions open on April 1, 2022
  • Closing date for submissions of proposals: December 23, 2022
  • Acceptance notification for proposals: within one month after submission of each proposal
  • Closing date for submissions of abstracts from speakers: March 15, 2023
  • Registration fees for speakers are due on July 20, 2023 (Speakers who have not registered at that date will have their talks removed from the program.)

The schedule of minisymposia is planned to be made available from May – June, 2023.

Important Notices

  1. Limitation of the number of talks by each participant: Each participant is limited to presenting at most one talk during the congress (ICIAM 2023), including talks in contributed talks, this is in order to provide the opportunity for everyone to present their research. Note that talks in industrial minisymposia and industrial contributed talks as well as invited talks are excluded from this limitation. If you are invited to speak in more than one minisymposium, we suggest you use the opportunity to nominate a colleague or student to speak about your work.
  2. Conference format: In principle, ICIAM 2023 will be held in a hybrid conference format, i.e., a session in a minisymposium may mix on-site and online talks. If the situation demands, we will switch the conference format to an online format. Even if that is the case, ICIAM 2023 will not reimburse any expenses including travel expenses and hotel charges of participants.
  3. Registration fee refunds: See “Cancellation and Refund Policy”.
  4. No exemption from payment of registration fee: ICIAM 2023 will not be able to waive the registration fee for minisymposium organizers and speakers, or reimburse their expenses. Therefore, minisymposium organizers should make no financial commitments on behalf of ICIAM 2023 when organizing their minisymposium.

Submission

Proposals for ICIAM 2023 minisymposia can be submitted via here.

Organizing a Minisymposium

Those interested in organizing a minisymposium should submit a proposal to the Local Scientific Program Committee by no later than the due date. Organizers will select the topics to be addressed, obtain speakers for those topics, decide with each speaker on the title of his/her presentation, and provide other information as needed. Organizers are especially encouraged to include speakers from more than one country and from underrepresented groups, including women and minorities, whenever appropriate.

A minisymposium may have up to four organizers, who can also be speakers, and chair the sessions. In conducting the minisymposium, one of the session organizers should provide an overview of the minisymposium, introduce the speakers, and provide an opportunity for discussion among the speakers and the audience.

Prospective minisymposium organizers should seriously consider the following recommendations when selecting speakers in a minisymposium:

  • Speakers should be selected primarily for their current contributions to the topic area.
  • Speakers should be as representative of researchers in the area as is practical.
  • Minisymposium organizers should select the first speaker who can provide an overview of the topic area, put the whole area in perspective, particularly regarding applications, and suggest new venues for sustainable research and applications. It is recommended that one of the minisymposium organizers becomes the first speaker.

Guidelines for Preparing a Minisymposium Proposal

Only one of the minisymposium organizers will be the contact person with the organization. The contact person should fill out the online submission form and provide the following information:

Contact person: Provide full name, title, affiliation, address, and e-mail address. All correspondence regarding the minisymposium will be sent to the e-mail address of the contact person.

A minisymposium can have up to four organizers. When filling out the online submission form, please assign a contact person.

Title of the minisymposium: Describe the subject of your minisymposium as accurately and specifically as possible in no more than ten words.

Abstract: Describe your minisymposium in no more than 100 words. The summary should be written to attract those who specifically work on your topic as well as those who work in related areas. It is suggested that you explain the problem area to be addressed by the speakers and why it is important in significant applications; identify current directions of research and methods being developed to solve problems, including their advantages and shortcomings; and describe the scope of your minisymposium.

Speakers: Provide full name, affiliation, country, and e-mail address of each speaker and the title of their presentation.

For industrial minisymposia: Provide at most three key words. One IMA option must be selected. At most two items in the list of Economic Activities and/or Societal Challenges may be selected.

Industrial Minisymposia

As mentioned above, an industrial minisymposium is a form of a minisymposium. The term ‘industry’ is used, in a broad sense to denote all kinds of business and commercial firms with economic activity and non-profit R&D organizations with activities outside the realm of education and academic research (including financial institutions, public administrations, and hospitals). The participation of speakers from industrial fields is encouraged.

Industrial minisymposia will be structured in accordance with “Economic Activities of Industrial or Business Interest” and “Societal Challenges”. In addition, the proposals should focus on one (and only one) of the following Industrial Mathematics Aspects (IMA):

  • IMA-1. Success stories developed under memorandum of understanding, contract, or competitive projects with industrial support.
  • IMA-2. Case studies including initiatives such as study groups with industry, modelling weeks, industry days, master thesis, PhD thesis, etc.
  • IMA-3. Education.
  • IMA-4. Worldwide infrastructures to promote collaborations between industry and academia.
  • IMA-5. Other

Local Information

Host City, Tokyo

Tokyo is one of the world’s largest cities offering visitors a uniquely eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary attractions. The city has something for everyone. Its cleanliness and safety are well-known and it is full of attractions, historic and modern. During every visit to the city, there is a new and exciting discovery. From the famous cat café to ancient shrines, to designer shops and traditional restaurants, there are numerous places to visit and enjoy.

Many research laboratories of various companies are located in Tokyo. For instance, Hitachi Research & Development Group has the Global Center for Social Innovation – Tokyo, and its Collaborative Creation Space. The Toshiba Science Museum is also located in the Greater Tokyo area. ICIAM participants will have the opportunity to visit them and discuss mathematical topics with researchers in industry.

A metropolis full of attractions like no other

Tokyo is known as one of Asia’s most modern cities, but traditions and cultures passed down from the Samurai period can still be seen and experienced. The city is a fast-paced cultural hub where what’s new and modern sits alongside historical gems. Tokyo offers visitors a uniquely eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary attractions, including world-renowned, exceptional Japanese cuisine.

Delicious, delicate, and diverse cuisines


Tokyo is without doubt one of the world’s gourmet paradises. Guests will be overwhelmed by the sheer range of choices for dining, with 100,000 restaurants offering tempting delights from around the world. In addition, you can experience the finest restaurants and highest culinary standards in the world. Of course, there is no better place in the world to enjoy sushi, tempura, sukiyaki and other traditional delicacies, and to experience authentic Japanese flavors.

Shopping


There are countless opportunities for visitors to shop for the beautiful and innovative products for which
Japan is world-famous: exquisite green teas and traditional sweets, attractive lacquerware and textiles
as well as fashion, from the classic to the avant-garde, in addition to state-of-the-art electronics products. Crossing through the Ginza shopping district, home to the biggest brand-name stores, the oldest department store in the world, and the Sony building, leads to Akihabara’s “Electric Town”, where multi-storied mega-stores and backstreet specialist shops deal in the latest electronics and coolest pop-culture
trends.

Tokyo at night


As dusk falls, Tokyo is transformed into a city of bright lights. Many observation decks in towers
and tall buildings are open till late, providing great vantage points for lovely night views. An
evening stroll through the streets of Shinjuku, Ginza or Shibuya – Tokyo’s best-known
nightlife districts – is a great way to see the city after dusk and enjoy the myriad of neon lights.
Visitors who want to “act like the locals” can enjoy the izakaya (local pubs) for a Japanese beer and yakitori (grilled chicken on a skewer) or visit a karaoke lounge for their own private sing-athon party. Guaranteed fun stories for the folks back home!

Arts & culture, traditional themes


Tokyo has dozens of museums spanning nearly every topic and interest with many offering glimpses into Japan’s rich and diverse history. For the more contemporary minded, there is an impressive number of smaller museums and galleries showcasing home-grown artists. Ueno Park is the most famous spot with various museums gathered in one area and we recommend visiting there if you are interested in arts and culture.

If you want to know more about Japanese traditional culture such as Kabuki, Noh and Sumo, there are various
places in Tokyo where you can encounter them.

Overall Affordability

Tokyo offers quality goods and services suited for all budgets, and participants are sure to find good value for money. Although Tokyo used to be recognized as one of the most expensive cities in the world, prices are no longer high compared with other big cities. The Starbucks index shows that a Starbucks latte in Japan costs less than in other global mega cities such as Paris, Sydney, Beijing and Seoul.

Subway fare

A single Tokyo Metro fare of less than USD 3 will get you to most destinations within central Tokyo. The city’s subway and railway services are among the best in the world; they are not only inexpensive but also frequent, reliable and clean, and have multilingual signs.

Meals

To satisfy the demanding taste buds of locals and international visitors, restaurants, cafes and bars strive to serve quality food and drinks at affordable prices.

ICIAM

The International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) is a world-wide organization for professional applied mathematics societies, and for other societies with a significant interest in industrial or applied mathematics. The International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics, held every four years, is the flagship conference of ICIAM.

Organizers

JSIAM


JSIAM, the Japan Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, was established in April 1990, and is the central organization for industrial and applied mathematicians in Japan. It currently has approximately 1300 individual members and 23 corporate members including Toyota, Nissan, Hitachi, NEC, and Canon. The JSIAM’s objective is to foster the mathematical sciences and engineering mathematics which contribute to the innovation of science and technology. It is a cross-disciplinary society consisting of people researching mathematical phenomena (in mathematics as well as in other sciences), those who apply mathematics (engineering, technology), and those who develop methods of analysis (computer science, experimental science).

Both the JSIAM and the MSJ are registered members of the Science Council of Japan, which is the governmental body administering the promotion and enhancement of sciences in Japan. Members of both societies have actively attended past ICIAM congresses since their inception, with recent ICIAMs attracting around 100 participants from Japan. Furthermore, both societies have sent representatives to every ICIAM Board Meeting.

MSJ

MSJ, The Mathematical Society of Japan, founded in 1877, is one of the oldest academic societies in Japan. Currently, the MSJ has more than 5,000 individual and institutional members. It organized the International Congress of Mathematicians in Kyoto in 1990 with great success. The MSJ conducts various activities to support mathematical research and education, thereby contributing to science and culture in general. It holds two annual meetings and organizes workshops/seminars, such as the Takagi Lectures and the MSJ-Seasonal Institutes. The MSJ’s activities include: (1) publishing journals, conference proceedings and books, (2) commending, through various awards, mathematicians who have made significant achievements in pure and applied mathematics, and (3) holding public lectures and seminars for a general audiences. As a body of professionals with mathematical expertise, the MSJ has been making policy proposals to the Japanese Government in order to improve the national education and research environment of mathematical sciences. The MSJ is also committed to a global agenda through its international activities. For example, members of the MSJ actively participate in international conferences such as the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) and the Asian Mathematical Conference (AMC). Furthermore, Dr. Shigefumi Mori, a member of the MSJ, was elected as president of the International Mathematical Union (IMU), the first ever from Asia.
