2016 EWM-EMS Summer School, Institut Mittag-Leffler, Call for Proposals


EWM and the EMS Women in Mathematics Committee are pleased to invite proposals for a one week summer school at the Institut Mittag Leffler in Stockholm in summer 2016.

There are places for up to 27 participants. The Institut will cover lodging and a meal allowance for everyone, and there is some travel money available. The school should be on a focused topic of current importance and open to PhD students and post-docs of both sexes.

A special feature of the summer school is that there will be a much larger than usual involvement by women. We expect that most or all of the members of the organising committee, at least half the participants, and if possible the lecturers, should be female.

The exact dates will have to be negotiated with the Institut. The EMS is supportive of this project and it is expected that some funding for travel will be available. Help and advice will be available from the Oversight Committee.

Proposals, which should be framed according to the guidelines (link below), should be sent electronically as a pdf file to secretaryatmittag-leffler [dot] se with a copy to tillmannatmaths [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk by April 1st 2015. They will be selected on the basis of their scientific merit and the extent to which they fulfill the aims of the guidelines.

Chair of the Oversight Committee
