Call for Proposals for Thematic Programs
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 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.
The IMS provides funding support for accommodation and subsistence allowance for speakers and participants as well as administrative support to the organizers of a program or workshop.
The deadline for submitting a proposal is 31 May 2023.
Period of activity: Between 1 February 2025 to 31 May 2025 and 1 August 2025 to 30 June 2026.
A soft copy of the proposal should be sent to the director of the institute at imsbox2(AT)nus.edu.sg by 31 May 2023.
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. The proposers are are required to give an in-person presentation of the proposal to the reviewers who will vary widely in their level of expertise with the topics in July 2023.
