(under 5th framework programme of the European Community)

This programme finished its activities in March 2004

The main objective of the Network is the research on spaces which appear naturally in mathematics and physics: analytic, smooth, smooth with boundary, smooth with angular boundary, startified spaces, combinatorial, Lipschitz, quasi-conformal, and general noncommutative spaces. The unifying tool used for their study is the noncommutative geometry.

Related research investigated in Warsaw include: Classical and Noncommutative Index Theory, Boundary Value and Transmission Problems for Elliptic PDE's, Sobolev Spaces with Applications in Geometry and Analysis on Metric Spaces, Topology of Singular Varieties, Algebraic and Topological Quantum Groups, Baum-Connes Conjecture. A more detailed description of research activities can be found here. One of the activities is also the Banach Center school/conference Noncommutative Geometry and Quantum Groups.


The Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw provides an important opportunity for visiting fellows, exposing them to new trends in pure and applied mathematics. In particular it provides:

Financial assistance for a limited number of fellows will be provided (1100 - 1500 Euro/month + travel support).

Cost of life in Warsaw. A limited number of rooms at the IMPAN building are available (400 Euro + 7% VAT per month). Cost of renting studio in the city, not in the very centre, is roughly the same. Food is slightly cheaper than in EU countries.

Who is eligible.

Mathematics in Warsaw

Warsaw houses a major research community of about 200 mathematicians (Ph.D.) representing a broad spectrum of contemporary mathematics, pure and applied, mainly grouped in three major scientific institutions: Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw University and Warsaw Technical University. As a part of the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, the Stefan Banach International Mathematical Center organizes semesters, workshops and conferences in spirit of the best tradition of Polish Mathematical School. Last year, in these activities over 500 participants coming from all over the world took part.

Fellowships for the academic year 2001/2002

We still have vacancies for both predoctoral and postdoctoral positions.

Expected length of visits is 4 months (minimum 2 months; maximum 6 months).

The autumn semester starts about 1st of October and ends about 25th of January, the spring semester starts about 15th of February and ends 25th of May, but some activities, especially in the Banach Center, extend to the whole year.
