B.2 Plenary Lectures

At the recommendation of the Program Committee, appointed by the International Mathematical Union (IMU), the Organizing Committee has invited 20 mathematicians to give one-hour Plenary Lectures. The names of the speakers, together with their affiliations and fields of research, are listed below. The Plenary Lectures will inform participants of major developments, problems, and trends in mathematics.
The IMU General Assembly, the Program Committee, and the Organizing Committee have emphasized that these lectures should be comprehensible to a wide spectrum of mathematicians. All plenary speakers have agreed to 
prepare addresses for a general mathematical audience.
