2014 Summer School at Mittag-Leffler Institute, call for proposals.


European Women in Mathematics and European Mathematical Society 2014 Summer School at the 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 2014. There are places for about 20 young people and two invited lecturers. The Institut will cover lodging and a meal allowance for everyone. The school should be on a focussed 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 organising committee, at least half the participants, and if possible the lecturers, should be female. There may be some scope for slightly increasing the number of participants or lecturers; this will have to be negotiated with the Institut nearer the time, as will the exact dates. Participants are expected to fund their own travel expenses, and organisers will have to find additional funding for the speakers, as well as any additional participants. The EMS is supportive of this project and it is likely that they will be ready to assist with some of the necessary additional funding. Additional help and advice will also be given by EWM and the EMS committee. Proposals, which should be framed according to the guidelines (attached) which can be found on the EWM website http://ewm-association.org/, should be sent electronically as a pdf file to secretaryatmittag-leffler [dot] se with a copy to susanna [dot] terraciniatunito [dot] it by March 15th 2013. They will be selected by the committee on the basis of their scientific merit and the extent to which they fulfill the aims of the guidelines.
