NSF, CBMS Announce Conference Series, Call for Proposals

1 January 2011 One Comment

The National Science Foundation will hold several conferences with the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) in the spring and summer of 2011. These conferences, which aim to stimulate interest and activity in mathematical research, include the following:

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.

Call for Proposals

Proposals for 2012 conferences will be accepted until April 15. When submitting a proposal, focus on a single, important, and timely area of research by a leading practitioner. Proposals will be reviewed for quality, breadth, and timeliness, as well as how well they will fit into a monograph for a large audience and the continued effect and local stimulation through regional emphasis they will have.

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.

For more information about the conferences or guidelines for proposal preparation and submission, visit the CBMS website or write to CBMS at 1529 Eighteenth Street NW, Washington, DC 20036; (202) 293-1170; rosier@georgetown.edu; kolbe@maa.org.

    The CBMS conference program is not being effectively used by statisticians. This year none of the conferences are on a statistics topic. This is because statisticians are not submitting proposals.

    If there’s a topic you are interested in and want to learn more about from an expert, think about contacting the expert to see if (s)he is willing to do a CBMS conference. If so, submit a proposal. There’s still time, but you’ll need to get started soon.
