Program & Event Information
ICERM encourages proposals for programs that support its mission to foster and broaden the relationship between mathematics and computation.
We welcome your ideas for semester programs, topical workshops, team research projects with Collaborate@ICERM, and our Summer@ICERM undergraduate research programs. How to propose an Program or Workshop.
A large part of ICERM's activities take place in the context of semester long thematic programs together with their associated workshops. Each such program hosts a number of long-term visitors (15-20 senior personnel, 5-10 postdoctoral fellows, and 8-12 graduate students) in addition to workshop participants.

Research clusters are scheduled during some of ICERM's semester programs. They are independently organized and consist of research group activities in a focused subfield of that semester program. Activities often begin with a collection of tutorials or a short (possibly two day) workshop. The research activities, planned by the organizer(s), may consist of teamwork, daily/weekly seminars, and closing presentations.
ICERM hosts 1-4 topical workshops each year. They focus on topics of current interest in the mathematical sciences. To apply, please submit the online application form for workshop participants. Decisions about online applications are typically made 1-3 months before the workshop.
|May 16 - 20, 2016||Effective and Algorithmic Methods in Hyperbolic Geometry and Free Groups||Tarik Aougab, Jeffrey Brock, Mladen Bestvina, Eriko Hironaka, Johanna Mangahas|
|June 13 - 17, 2016||Algorithmic Coding Theory||Mary Wootters, Atri Rudra, Hamed Hassani|
|June 27 - July 1, 2016||Illustrating Mathematics||Kelly Delp, Saul Schleimer, Henry Segerman, Laura Taalman|
|July 18 - 22, 2016||Stochastic numerical algorithms, multiscale modelling and high-dimensional data analytics||Mark Girolami, Susan Holmes, Benedict Leimkuhler, Mauro Maggioni|
|August 1 – 5, 2016||Cycles on Moduli Spaces, Geometric Invariant Theory, and Dynamics||Ana-Maria Castravet, Dawei Chen, Maksym Fedorchuk, Anton Zorich|
ICERM hosts a summer undergraduate research program called "Summer@ICERM". 12-14 undergraduates are funded to come to ICERM for an eight-week intensive program taught by faculty. Brown University UTRA students and students with outside funding are welcome to apply as well.
Collaborate@ICERM offers teams of 3-6 researchers the opportunity to spend five days at the institute during the summer (May-August) or in the month of January. The team research project should have a computational or experimental component. ICERM provides access to a variety of software packages as well as to high performance computing through Brown's Center for Computation and Visualization.
Proposals are now invited and will be reviewed by the ICERM Science Board during their November meeting. See the Proposals page for more details.
ICERM hosts on-site public lectures and special events and frequently participates in national mathematical events and conferences. Part of ICERM's mission is to promote themes of national interest: diversity in the sciences, the teaching of mathematics, the role of technology and computers in research and the classroom, and the contribution of modern mathematics to everything from biology and medicine, to commerce, to climate forecasting and environmental policy.
