David Kazhdan will be one of the Plenary Speakers at the next International Congress of Mathematics (ICM), which will take place in St. Petersburg, Russia, from 6 to 14 July, 2022.
The ICM is the most influential conference in pure and applied mathematics. Many prestigious awards as the Fields Medals are awarded during the congress's opening ceremony. An invitation to give a plenary lecture to the thousands of ICM participants is considered a special distinction in the mathematical community.

On this episode of HUJI Bites, Prof. Tamar Ziegler, the Henry and Manya Noskwith Chair of Mathematics at the Einstein Institute of Mathematics at the Hebrew University – and a former Ph.D. student of Furstenberg’s - speaks with her former professor about his love for the field and why sometimes even the most difficult of problems are worth solving.
From our experience many students struggle with their mathematical studies during the first semester. Some struggle because they don’t remember enough of the mathematics they learned in high school and some because the language of mathematics is foreign to them.
In order to resolve these difficulties we offer a “preliminary workshop to mathematical studies“. We highly recommend prospective students to attend this worshop, more details here.
