Vietnam Mathematical Congress is the largest scientific event in the country happening once every 5 years. This year, the 9th Vietnam Mathematical Congress was organised from August 14 - 18, 2018 and divided into 2 parts: Scientific Conference and Congress of the Vietnam Mathematical Society (VMS). 

The Scientific Conference comprised of 8 parallel sessions: Algebra - Number Theory - Geometry - Topology, Analysis, Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems, Discrete Mathematics and Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science, Optimization and Scientific Computing, Probability - Statistics, Mathematical Applications, and Mathematics Education and History of Mathematics. There were 5-7 parallel lectures for every session, 7 plenary lectures, and almost 350 contributed lectures about different mathematical topics. These lectures presented research achievements of individuals and research groups of Vietnamese mathematicians on theory and application of mathematics. Lectures were selected based on several criteria: quality, variety, lecturers with remarkable research results.
