IMU Bulletin no. 43, October
The Organizing Committee made significant efforts, together with the International Mathematical Union, to give financial support for participants from developing countries and Eastern Europe. A fund of more than DM 900,000 made it possible to sponsor the attendance of approximately 450 mathematicians. About 510 colleagues were invited, around 60 were unfortunately unable to attend; 93 young and 37 mature colleagues from developing countries received grants from the IMU and the local organization, 305 persons from the support program of the local Organizing Committee for mathematicians from Eastern Europe. Special grants from mathematical institutions and other support programs complemented these efforts.
