Bernoulli Brainstorm

The Bernoulli Center (CIB) is now inviting applications for its new Bernoulli Brainstorm scheme.

We support small groups of researchers (2 to 4 participants) who want to find ideal research conditions for a short, intensive time. This is the opportunity to finally finish a difficult paper, or to start a new collaboration, or to take a good shot at a hard problem.

Call for proposals: Bernoulli Center (July 2017 - June 2019)

The Bernoulli Center (CIB) in Lausanne invites you to propose a one-semester programme in any branch of the mathematical sciences. Such a programme will benefit from the resources and funding of CIB, allowing for long-term and short-term visitors, conferences, seminars, workshops, lecture series or summer schools.

Call: Proposals for scientific activities in 2016

The EMS Meetings Committee calls for nominations or proposals of speakers and scientific events in 2016. The EMS, via its Meetings Committee, is willing to provide support that may cover the cost of the EMS Lecturers and of Distinguished Speakers, and to give partial support to the organization of EMS Weekends and of EMS Summer Schools. Only a limited number of events can be supported. Events within Europe and speakers with profound relations to European academic institutions will be given preference.
