Geordie Williamson to be plenary speaker at ICM 2018
Professor Geordie Williamson will be one of the plenary speakers at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Rio de Janeiro in 2018. Held every four years, the International Congress is the world's most prestigious mathematical event, and Professor Williamson is the first Australia-based mathematician to be selected as a plenary speaker.

The Australian-Japanese Workshop on Real and Complex Singularities is an initiative towards the further advance of scientific exchange between Australian and Japanese researchers. The scientific programme will be based around a series of expository lectures presented by the invited speakers, each of whom is an internationally recognised expert in an area of mathematics having substantial interactions with the contemporary theory of singularities in real and complex geometry.
