Programs, Research, Short Courses, and Submission of Program Proposals
Thematic Program: The Institute for Mathematics and its Applications, located on the University of Minnesota campus, recently launched its 2011–2012 annual thematic program on the Mathematics of Information. More information about this year’s workshops and visiting opportunities is available at http://www.ima.umn.edu/2011-2012. The 2012–2013 thematic program will be on Infinite Dimensional and Stochastic Dynamical Systems and Their Applications; information about that program is available at http://www.ima.umn.edu/2012-2013.
New Directions Research Professorships: New Directions research professorships provide an extraordinary opportunity for established mathematicians—typically mid-career faculty at U.S. universities—to branch into new directions and increase the impact of their research by spending an academic year immersed in a thematic program at the IMA, where they learn new mathematics and applications, connect their research with important problems, and establish new contacts and collaborations. Applications for professorships during the 2012–2013 program year, Infinite Dimensional and Stochastic Dynamical Systems and Their Applications, will be reviewed beginning January 15, 2012.
New Directions Short Course: An intensive, two-week New Directions short course will offer extraordinary opportunities for established mathematicians to branch into new directions and increase the impact of their research. Participants are able to delve more deeply into research, learn about open problems, and meet potential collaborators. The 2012 short course, Advances in Random Matrix Theory, will run from June 18 to 29, 2012. Applications are being accepted at http://www.ima.umn.edu/2011-2012/ND6.18-29.12.
Solicitation for Program Proposals: The IMA invites members of the mathematical sciences community, scientists, and engineers to contribute ideas to its various programs. Information about submitting proposals is available at http://www.ima.umn.edu/solicit.
