Thematic and Focus Program Proposals

The Fields Institute solicits proposals for a variety of programs in areas of current research interest in the mathematical sciences:

(1) Major thematic programs, six months in length.
(2) Thematic or focus programs, from one to two months in length to run concurrently with our major thematic programs. We are interested, in particular, in two-month summer programs of an interdisciplinary nature

The following elements are important to the success of all Programs:

  • Short- and long-term visitors,
  • Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows,
  • Lecture series, seminars, workshops and conferences.
  • Significant training component, including graduate courses in the case of Major Thematic Programs.
