Call for Proposals: MATRIX-SMRI Research Symposium 2021

MATRIX (Creswick) and the Sydney Mathematical Research Institute 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 centred 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 Creswick.

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
