Held at Cambridge University November 28 - December 1. Ben Green gave three research lectures, "Themes in Additive Combintorics," as well as a public lecture, "Adding Prime Numbers." Akshay Venkatesh gave three research lectures, "Abelian and Nonabelian Symmetry in Analytic Number Theory," as well as a public lecture, "Adding square numbers." See Clay Lectures in Mathematics, 2006.
The 2005 Annual Meeting of the Clay Mathematics Institute featured presentation of the Clay Research Awards to Manjul Bhargava and Nils Dencker and a special public lecture, "Solving Equations," by Professor Andrew Wiles. The Meeting was held at Oxford University following "Euclid and His Heritage," public conference celebrating the first digital edition of the oldest extant manuscript of the Elements (888 AD).
The Clay Mathematics Institute held its 2004 Annual Meeting on Friday, November 5, at Harvard University. This year's event was hosted by the Harvard mathematics department. Gérard Laumon spoke on "the Fundamental Lemma for Unitary Groups," a proof he formulated with his colleague Bao-Châu Ngô; and Ben Green spoke on his joint work with Terry Tao on arithmetic progressions of prime numbers. The Clay Research awards, which recognize significant recent research breakthroughs in mathematics, were presented to Ben Green of Trinity College, Cambridge, and to Gérard Laumon and Bao-Châu Ngô, both of the Université de Paris-Sud and the CNRS (Centre Nationale de Recherche Scientifique).
The 2003 Annual Meeting of the Clay Mathematics Institute was hosted by MIT at the MIT Media Lab in the afternoon of November 14. The meeting opened with remarks by president Jim Carlson and presentation of the Clay Research Awards. The recipients of the awards were Richard Hamilton of Columbia University and Terence Tao of UCLA. Awardees receive a sculpture by artist Helaman Ferguson and appointment as a Clay Research Scholar. Following the presentation were talks by Richard Hamilton on Ricci Flow and by John Morgan on Ricci Flow, Perelman's work, and the Poincaré Conjecture.
The Clay Mathematics Institute 2002 Annual Meeting took place on Wednesday, October 30, 2002 at the American Academy of Arts & Sciences in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Presentation of the Clay Research Awards were made to Manindra Agrawal for his work on primality testing and to Oded Schramm for his work on the Loewner equation. Following the awards were talks by Agrawal and Voevodsky, the first on primality testing, the second on motivic cohomology.
On July 13, 2001 the Clay Mathematics Institute organized the closing ceremonies of the International Mathematics Olympiad in Washington, DC, and incorporated this event into its 2001 Annual Meeting. The events brought approximately five hundred of the world's best high school mathematics students in contact with a cross-section of the world's best research mathematicians.
The landmark Paris Millennium Event held on May 24, 2000 was the occasion at which CMI announced the Millennium Prize Problems. About 500 people filled the Amphithéâtre Marguerite de Navare at the Collège de France. The announcement in Paris marks the 100th anniversary of David Hilbert's lecture at the second International Congress of Mathematicians. Hilbert's blueprint for mathematics was more influential in setting the direction for 20th century mathematics than any other single event.
On May 10, 1999, the Clay Mathematics Institute officially opened with an inaugural ceremony entitled "A Celebration of the Universality of Mathematical Thought" in Cambridge, Massachusetts at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
