International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics selects The Hague for 2027 Conference

More than 3,500 delegates will attend The International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) in The Hague from 12-16 July 2027.

The congress takes place every four years, organised by The International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics - the worldwide organisation for professional applied mathematics societies, as well as others with a significant interest in industrial or applied mathematics.


Both the Council and their regular event bring together leading experts from across the field of mathematics to advance the applications of mathematics in all parts of the world. The congress will focus on the further stimulation of the relationship and interaction between mathematics and industry. The event’s scientific program will cover a comprehensive range of applied mathematical topics, highlighting the most recent advances in the discipline and demonstrating their applicability to science, engineering and industry.


The Netherlands is a leader in the field of industrial mathematics, due to a significant number of research laboratories and international organisations spread across the country. Additionally, the Netherlands hosts many of the European Industrial Doctorates programs related to industrial mathematics, making The Hague the ideal location for ICIAM 2027.


Professor Kees Vuik from the Delft University of Technology and the Delf Institute of Applied Mathematics commented: “The transfer of knowledge and expertise between the applied mathematics and the industrial community is one of our priorities given the presence of a strong network within Europe. I am therefore excited that the board has decided to organise ICIAM 2027 in The Netherlands. This congress will give another boost to the industrial and applied mathematics community both here and across Europe.”


Bas Schot, from the The Hague Convention Bureaux added: “This is another opportunity for us to demonstrate our position as world leader in the delivery of international congresses and events. As a global hub for research, industry and mathematics we are perfectly placed to deliver not just the congress but also the wider support from our partners and local stakeholders, all of which make up The Hague’s incredibly powerful knowledge economy.”
