CRM Aisenstadt chairs, Nirenberg lecturer receive Fields Medals, Chern Prize at ICM
The recipients of the top honours in the mathematical sciences, announced on August 1, 2018 at the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) in Rio de Janeiro, include three former holders of
distinguished visiting positions at the CRM. Receiving the Fields Medal were Akshay Venkatesh (CRM André Aisenstadt Chair, 2010) and Alessio Figalli (CRM Nirenberg Lecturer, 2014), while Masaki
Kashiwara (CRM André Aisenstadt Chair, 2010) was awarded the Chern Prize. The CRM heartily congratulates these and all other medalists and prizewinners from ICM 2018, including Caucher Birkar and
Peter Scholze (Fields medalists), David Donoho (recipient of the Gauss prize), and Constantinos Daskalakis (recipient of the Nevanlinna prize). Videos of lectures delivered by Figalli and Kashiwara
during their residencies at the CRM may be found in the CRM video library.

Workshop at the CRM  September 1721, 2018
Entanglement, Integrability and Topology in ManyBody Systems
Concepts from quantum information theory have found fertile ground in manybody condensedmatter physics and have become ubiquitous in the past decade. In particular, concepts related to entanglement have emerged as an important theoretical tool in tackling one of the central goals of condensed matter physics: the understanding and characterization of phase transitions.

Pavel Winternitz, 2018 Wigner medal winner
Professor Winternitz has been a CRM member for many decades. He was instrumental in making the CRM into an internationallyrenowned institution. He is also a member of the CRM Physics mathematics laboratory. He is professor at the mathematics and statistics department of the Université de Montréal.
During his career, he obtained many honors and prizes among them the CAPCRM Prize (2002). He has published books and book chapters as well as a great number of scientific papers.
The 2018 Wigner Medal has been awarded to him for his fundamental contribution to the determination and application of symmetries in the resolution of differential and difference equations and (super) integrable systems.
The medal will be awarded during the 32nd International Colloquium on Group Theoretical methods in Physics (Group 32), July 9  13, 2018 in Prague. Professor Winternitz will be a plenary speaker during this event.  Read more
