IMPAN invites applications for the 3 months-long period of concentrated scientific activity The semester is supposed to be focused on one, possibly broad, field of modern mathematics, and provide on one hand an excellent environment for the interaction between the top experts in the area and on the other hand training opportunities for young researchers.
The support of the Simons Foundation would cover salaries and basic mobility expenses of the 2-3 international leaders and 2-3 young outstanding researchers for the period of the semester. IMPAN apart from providing general infrastructure (office space, IT support, conference facilities) will fund, mainly via the already existing programs, the stays of up to 10 pre- and post-doctoral researchers in the area of the semester. When appropriate, IMPAN would also employ the Polish organizer(s) for the duration of the semester. Additional support for organizing research activities can be requested from Banach Center, the conference subsidiary of IMPAN.
The organizing committee (2-4 people) must contain at least one mathematician based in Poland and at least one mathematician based outside of Poland. During the 3 months long semester at least one conference, one graduate school and one specialized workshop will be organized.
