Call for Proposals for Scientific Programs and Workshops – Deadline September 30th, 2021

The Simons Center for Geometry and Physics (SCGP) at Stony Brook University is seeking proposals for scientific programs/workshops/conferences for the 2022-23 and future academic years. SCGP is a research center devoted to furthering fundamental knowledge in mathematics, not (strictly) limited to geometry, and theoretical physics, especially knowledge at the interface of these two disciplines.

Each year SCGP funds about 4 Visiting Programs (ranging from one month up to an entire semester) and 10 workshops (normally lasting 5 days).  

Proposals to organize a workshop or a program at SCGP can be submitted through our website at any time, but are reviewed and selected in mid-October and mid-February by the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Center:

The following are the upcoming deadlines:

·  September 30, 2021 – deadline for proposal submissions to be reviewed at the October 2021 Scientific Advisory Committee meeting. 

·  January 31, 2022 – deadline for proposal submissions to be reviewed at the February 2022 Scientific Advisory Committee meeting.

The proposals should not be too elaborate, but should make a strong scientific case for the workshop or program and must include title, description, the list of organizers, and key participants (preferably: with confirmation of their tentative interest) of the future workshop or program.

The detailed guidelines and the form for submitting proposals may be found at

If you have any questions concerning proposal submission, we encourage you to contact us well before the deadline of September 30, 2021, by writing an e-mail to

Once a workshop or a program is selected to take place at SCGP, the organizers will be contacted to fix the dates of the activity, to determine the list of invited participants and other details. SCGP provides extensive administrative and logistical support for its programs and workshops, allowing organizers to focus on the scientific aspects of their activity.

We would very much appreciate if you could share this information with your colleagues or anyone else of interest.  For more information about SCGP and upcoming events, please look at the Center’s webpage and our latest newsletter.

We are committed to academic freedom and keeping science open to all individuals. We encourage anyone interested to submit a proposal, regardless of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, pregnancy, immigration status, veteran status, or any other aspect of identity.  All participants of our activities will be treated with dignity and respect, and discrimination or harassment of any form will not be tolerated.
