ICM Review

A nice commentary on the recently-concluded "International Congress of Mathematicians" Conference (where Fields Medals were awarded) in India from Alex Bellos here:

The Congress meets once every 4 years, and is " the largest, most prestigious and most traditional event in maths;" Bellos adds "no other scientific discipline has an event as big and with as much historic resonance."

Attendees have been blogging and tweeting about the Conference since it opened; Bellos here summarizes a few highpoints (and promises more in follow-up post).
