Who wants to bet on Fields medals that will be awarded tomorrow? I mean the other Fields medals, not Scholze's.

e.g. can I view it online?

It's 2018, I do hope this will be live on Youtube

"opening ceremony" is quite a cryptic name

I'm pretty sure I heard at least one monetary bet being discussed at ICMS

view this post on Zulip Patrick Massot (Jul 31 2018 at 20:43):

I guess it wasn't much money

Do you remember what was the bet?

view this post on Zulip Patrick Massot (Jul 31 2018 at 20:57):

For proof assistants, the most favorable winner would be Viazovska.

view this post on Zulip Scott Morrison (Jul 31 2018 at 21:19):

Other names I've heard mentioned are Geordie Williamson and Ciprian Manolescu.

view this post on Zulip Patrick Massot (Jul 31 2018 at 22:43):

Oh sure, those are serious contenders. I even understand a bit about what Ciprian is doing. We could at least formalize the statement of his triangulation stuff.

view this post on Zulip Johan Commelin (Aug 01 2018 at 11:10):

I would guess Scholze, Birkar, Viazovska, and I have no guess for #4. We will know in a couple of hours!

Sorry for my late reply... I was trying to get a tex-file to compile. But yes, that's a brilliant strategy.

Kashiwara got the Chern medal. So then no Fields medal for Williamson.

Schapira will give (or has given?) the laudatio for Kashiwara, this may be fun. It will make up a bit for the fact that Fontaine is not giving the laudatio for Scholze.
