Core NSF Support and Reports

The Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics is one of eight Mathematical Sciences Institutes in the United States. Each institute receives funding from the Division of Mathematical Sciences of the National Science Foundation (NSF).

ICERM was launched in 2010, with a five-year $15.5-million grant from the NSF. A $17.5M grant renewal to Brown University was announced in September 2015.

Research at ICERM focuses on topics of critical and emerging mathematical and societal importance, with a particular emphasis on the interplay between mathematics and computational experimentation, visualization and simulation. The research at the institute is collaborative in nature and takes place in the context of two semester-long programs together with several associated workshops. Other scientific activities include international conferences, a summer undergraduate research program, and special events targeting under-represented groups in the mathematical sciences. Each year ICERM hosts nearly 1,000 scholars and researchers from all over the world who work together for periods ranging from several weeks to several months.
