Asking for proposals for 2018 at CIEM, Universidad de Cantabria, Spain
The CIEM (International Center for Mathematical Meetings, http://www.ciem.unican.es) is an initiative of the University of Cantabria whose goal is to promote quality mathematical research, be it in its more basic or its more applied and computational aspects, with special emphasis to multidisciplinar ventures. It has organized 130 events since its foundation, in 2006.
The CIEM is now seeking activity proposals for the year 2018. All individuals and groups interested in organizing a workshop, meeting, advanced course, etc. are invited to ask for the CIEM to allocate that event in its annual program. The candidate events must be thematically related to mathematics or close fields (computer science, theoretical physics,..) and their quality be guaranteed by a scientific and/or organizing committee. Their length should preferably be one week (Monday to Friday), but three-day meetings and, exceptionally, two-week meetings are also allowed.
The CIEM offers its resources (lecture room for 100 people, smaller meeting rooms, internet wifi, computer room, etc) plus logistic and monetary support for the organization, accommodation, etc.
Proposals should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org preferably before September 10. The application letter should contain a brief description of the event, previous similar meetings if any, organizing committee, expected number of attendees, expected external financing, financial support asked to CIEM, and any other information that supports the quality and feasibility.
