The ICWM 2014 meeting in Seoul will consist of two days of activities. The first day of activities are scheduled from 8 am to 5 pm on August 12th at Ewha Womans University, which is about an hour away by car or subway from the COEX convention center where the ICM 2014 will be held.

On the first day, five colloquium style talks will be given by leading women mathematicians from around the world invited at the recommendation of 16 international members of the ICWM 2014 Program Committee organized by the International Mathematical Union. In addition, there will be a poster session highlighting the latest research of selected attendees of the meeting and a panel discussion session, ICWM-Forum, highlighting important issues surrounding women mathematicians. For the second day of activities at the COEX convention center, two more colloquium style invited talks, KWMS and IMU special program sessions, and ICWM banquet are planned.
