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.

Submission Guidelines

The Call for Proposals 2021 is now closed. Please look out for new announcements for 2022.

The Deadline for submitting a proposal is 31 May 2021.
Period of activity: Between 1 July 2023 and 30 June 2024.

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 by 31 May 2021. The exposition of a proposal should be aimed at the non-specialist and will be evaluated by a scientific panel.
