NSF, CBMS Announce Conference Series
The National Science Foundation will hold six conferences jointly with the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences in the spring and summer of 2010. These conferences, which aim to stimulate interest and activity in mathematical research, include the following:
- The Mathematics of Diffusions
- Nonlinear Water Waves with Applications to Wave-Current Interactions and Tsunamis
- Quiver Varieties and Crystal Bases of Quantum Affine Algebras
- The Mutually Beneficial Relationship of Matrices and Graphs
- Recent Advances in the Numerical Approximation of Stochastic Partial Differential Equations
- Bayesian Nonparametric Statistical Methods: Theory and Applications
Each of the five-day conferences will feature 10 lectures on a topic of important current research in a focused area of the mathematical sciences. A monograph will be published afterward.
Also, proposals for 2011 conferences will be accepted until April 23. When submitting a proposal, submitters should keep in mind the four distinguishing characteristics of the conference series, as follows:
- Focus on a single, important, and timely area of research by a leading practitioner
- Publish monograph afterward for a wide audience
- Provide strong emphasis on local research activity
- Review all proposals for quality, breadth, and timeliness
Colleges or universities with research competence in the field of the proposal are eligible to submit a proposal. Institutions interested in upgrading or improving their research efforts are especially encouraged to apply.
