2010 Clay Research Conference

The topic of the 2010 Clay Research Conference was Grigoriy Perelman's proof of the Poincaré conjecture and Thurston's Geometrization conjecture. Perelman's proof, which appeared in a series of three preprints posted on in 2002 and 2003, is based on Riemannian geometry and Hamilton's theory of Ricci flow. For that work he was awarded the first Clay Millennium Prize.

2009 Clay Research Conference

2002 Annual Meeting

2001 Annual Meeting

  • 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, including Edward Witten, Andrew Wiles, and Arthur Jaffe. The meeting of the Clay Mathematics Institute took place at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts at 2:00 PM on July 13. This ceremony included the presentation of the Clay Research Awards and two inspirational talks by CMI Scientific Advisory Board members Andrew Wiles and Edward Witten. Following the ceremony at the Kennedy Center was a reception and dinner at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC. The dinner involved almost eleven hundred guests, and included talks by Alfred R. Berkeley, III, Chairman of NASDAQ, and Rita Colwell, Director of the National Science Foundation, as well as other forms of entertainment including a live performance by Christopher Thompson, accompanied by Milton Granger, of an excerpt fromFermat's Last Tango.

Millennium Meeting

  • These videos document the Institute's landmark Paris millennium event which took place on May 24-25, 2000, at the Collège de France. On this occasion, CMI unveiled the "Millennium Prize Problems," seven mathematical quandaries that have long resisted solution. The announcement in Paris honored the 100-year anniversary of David Hilbert's address of 1900 to the International Congress of Mathematicians in Paris, in which he outlined 23 mathematics problems that set the tone for much 20th century mathematical research. 
  • The Millennium Prize Problems I
    John Tate,  Riemann hypothesis, Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture, P vs NP
  • The Millennium Prize Problems II
    Michael Atiyah, Poincaré conjecture, Hodge conjecture, Quantum Yang-Mills problem, Navier-Stokes problem
  • The Importance of Mathematics | HR Version
