Call for Proposals for Scientific Workshops/Conferences

Call for Proposals for Scientific Workshops/Conferences

The Simons Center for Geometry and Physics (SCGP) at Stony Brook University is seeking proposals for scientific workshops/conferences to be held in the 2015-16 academic year. The Simons Center is a research center devoted to furthering fundamental knowledge in mathematics and theoretical physics, especially knowledge at the interface of these two disciplines.

Each year the Simons Center funds about 10 workshops; these workshops normally last one week (5 days) and have organizing committees from outside the Center. These committees suggest the names (about 30) of those who will be invited to the Center to participate in the workshop.

The proposals will be reviewed and selected by the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Center at its next meeting to be held in February 2015. Therefore, the proposals for workshops in 2015-16 academic year should be submitted before January 31st, 2015.

The proposals should not be too elaborate but should make a strong scientific case for the workshop and include title, description, organizers and key participants of the future workshop. The detailed guidelines for submission of workshop proposals may be found through: .

If you have any questions concerning proposal submission we encourage you to contact us before the deadline of January 31, 2015 by writing e-mail to:
