The Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) invites semester program proposals that support its mission to foster and broaden the relationship between mathematics and computation.
Semester Programs: ICERM hosts two semester programs per year. Each has 4-7 organizers and typically incorporates three week-long associated workshops.
On average, the institute provides partial or full support for 5 postdoctoral fellows and 6-10 graduate students per program. There is support for housing and travel support for long-term visitors (including organizers), who stay for 3-4 months, as well as short-term visitors, who stay for 2-6 weeks. In addition, there is support for workshop attendees and applicants.
Faculty interested in organizing a semester research program should begin the process by submitting a pre-proposal: a 2-3 page document which describes the scientific goals, lists the organizers of the program, and identifies the key participants.
All pre-proposals should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 1st. Proposers will receive feedback from an ICERM director within a few weeks of their submission.

The Institute for Applied Mathematics and its Applications invites nominations for its Board of Governors. Nominees can either self-nominate, or they can be nominated by others.
The IMA’s board consists of 15 distinguished members from academia, industry, and government. The board is the principal governing body of the IMA. Incoming members of the board will serve a five-year term, beginning on January 1, 2014.
The role of the board is twofold: first, to provide oversight and advice on matters of institute management, development, and institutional relationships; and second, for its members to play an active scientific role in planning and developing annual program themes, as well as identifying lead program organizers. The board meets for two days annually, and subcommittees meet several times annually via conference call.
Submission of Nominations: Nominations for prospective members of the board should be submitted via the online form at http://www.ima.umn.edu/bog. All nominations will be reviewed by the Nominations Committee. Nominees will be notified of the committee’s decision no later than December 1, 2013.
