Call for Proposals for a summer school at the Institut Mittag Leffler in 2018

06/05/2017

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 2018.

There are places for up to 28 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
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
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
(see attached), should be sent
electronically as a pdf file to secretarymittag-leffler [dot] se with a copy
to tillmannmaths [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk by 30 July 2017. 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
