SAMSI Announces New Partnerships, Initiative

1 March 2012 No Comment

The Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI) recently partnered with the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) and several institutes in India (CMI, IISc, ISI, IMSC) to form the Virtual Institute for Mathematical and Statistical Sciences (VI-MSS). The virtual institute will sponsor joint workshops, research visitors, and graduate educational activities with support from the National Science Foundation.

As part of this initiative, SAMSI announces three new activities:

  • A workshop on environmental statistics will be held at SAMSI June 18–20. There will be invited speakers from both the United States and India. Registration will include the opportunity to participate in a poster session. Major themes of the workshop include measuring and monitoring the environment, health effects of air and water pollution, and climate change.
  • A workshop on topics in probability will be held December 18–20 at the Chennai Mathematical Institute. This workshop will consist of 12–15 one-hour lectures spanning a broad range of topics of current interest in probability. We expect approximately half of the speakers to be from U.S. universities and the other half from universities in India.
  • In addition, we invite applications from U.S. participants to take part in research visits to India. Visits may be up to six months in duration for the purpose of extended research collaboration with a faculty member at one of the participating Indian institutes. To be considered for a research visit during the 2012–2013 academic year, applications should be received at SAMSI no later than March 31. Applications may be made through the SAMSI website and will be coordinated with ICERM.

For more information about any of these activities, email Richard Smith, director of SAMSI, at rls@samsi.info.
