The Institute for Mathematical Sciences (IMS) of the National University of Singapore (NUS) invites submissions of proposals from researchers in academia and industry. The proposals are for organizing thematic programs or workshops to be held at IMS. Each program and workshop should have a well-defined theme or themes that are at the forefront of research in an area of mathematical science or its applications, and should be of international interest as well as of relevance to the local scientific community. The duration of a program is typically between one and three months, while that of a workshop is between one and two weeks.
The Deadline for submitting a proposal is 15 May 2018.
Period of activity: Between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2021
The IMS is particularly interested in receiving proposals of programs/workshops that focus on exciting new developments in the mathematical sciences. Proposals of interdisciplinary nature in areas that interface mathematics with science, social science or engineering are welcome.
A soft copy of the proposal should be sent to the director of the institute at imsdir(AT)nus.edu.sg by 15 May 2018. The exposition of a proposal should be aimed at the non-specialist and will be evaluated by a scientific panel. Proposals of interdisciplinary programs/workshops should describe how the activity would benefit the intended audience with diverse backgrounds and facilitate research collaboration.
