NSF-CBMS Regional Research Conferences in the Mathematical Sciences

 ********************************************************************************* Program Number: 32517 Title: NSF-CBMS Regional Research Conferences in the Mathematical Sciences Sponsor: Directorate for Mathematics and Physical Sciences/NSF SYNOPSIS: The NSF-CBMS Regional Research Conferences in the Mathematical Sciences are a series of five-day conferences each of which features a distinguished lecturer delivering ten lectures on a topic of important current research in one sharply focused area of the mathematical sciences. CBMS refers to the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences which publicizes the conferences and administers the resulting publications. Support is provided for about 30 participants at each conference. <S2S> Deadline(s): 04/24/2015 Established Date: 04/05/2013 Follow-Up Date: 02/01/2016 Review Date: 02/26/2015 Contact: Jennifer S.

Restricted: NO RESTRICTIONS CFDA#: 47.049 OBJECTIVES: The continuing success and strength of this conference series over the past decades owes to certain distinguishing features which differentiate these conferences from typical research conferences. These are: Focus on a single important and timely area of research by a leading practitioner. Each conference lecturer is a major contributor to the subject area of the conference and has a broad perspective on that area. The lectures pull together the major ideas and recent results and chart the possible future directions for the field. The purpose of this format is to ensure that the participants, especially the new or recent entrants to the field, gain a deeper understanding of the major outstanding problems and current directions of research in the field than they would get from the typical conference format, where many people present talks on their own results; Published monograph for a wider audience. The monograph based on the lectures presents, to a much wider audience than the conference alone provides, a carefully prepared synthesis of and perspective on an active field of research by one of its leading contributors; and Continued effect and local stimulation through regional emphasis. The purpose of the regional emphasis, with many of the participants drawn from areas geographically proximate to the host institution, is to provide a strong stimulus for increased local research activity and to assure that the contacts made during the conference will continue. Participants include not only established researchers but also newcomers to the field, such as graduate students, postdocs, and faculty wishing to learn a new area. The competence of the conference organizer (principal investigator) and the thematic and organizational appropriateness of the host institution (including arrangements for housing, meals, etc.) are essential to the conference's success. ELIGIBILITY Proposals may only be submitted by the following: Universities and Colleges - Universities and two- and four-year colleges (including community colleges) accredited in, and having a campus located in the US, acting on behalf of their faculty members. Such organizations also are referred to as academic institutions; and Non-profit, non-academic organizations: Independent museums, observatories, research labs, professional societies and similar organizations in the U.S. associated with educational or research activities. FUNDING Each anticipated 1-year award will total approximately $35,000 including direct and indirect costs. Source: Grants.gov (04/05/13). (cas) KEYWORDS: Mathematics Grants.gov Grants.gov/S2S
