Proposals Due MATRIX-SMRI Research Symposium (2021)


Call for Proposals MATRIX-SMRI Research Symposium (2021) 

MATRIX (Creswick) and the Sydney Mathematical Research Institute (SMRI) invite 
proposals for a joint Research Symposium to be held in a hybrid format (in-person/
on-line) in 2021.  

The joint MATRIX-SMRI Research Symposium will be centered around one distinguished
international researcher who will Chair the Symposium, or one key publication for 
which one of the international authors will be designated Chair.  

The hybrid research symposium will normally run for at least two weeks with 
face-to-face and online components.  The Chair will deliver at least two online 
lectures coordinated by SMRI in the lead-up to a central face-to-face intensive 
research event for up to 20 participants at the MATRIX facilities in Cheswick.  

Local participants may also present seminars during the online lead-up.  Those who are
not able to travel to MATRIX due to COVID-19 travel restrictions can participate 
online during this event.  During or after the face-to-face event at MATRIX, the 
Chair will take part in an online discussion session, facilitated by SMRI.  

How to apply Proposals should come with a team of organisers including at least two
organisers planning to attend in person at MATRIX.  Organisers should aim for gender
balance.  The application should contain: 

* Title of the suggested research symposium 

* Research Program organisers including up to 10 publications relevant to the
