Upcoming NSF-CBMS Regional Research Conferences

SIAM is proud to be a member of the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS). This year, the National Science Foundation has announced support for two NSF-CBMS Regional Research Conferences to be held in 2016, bringing the number of such conferences since the NSF-CBMS Regional Research Conference Series began in 1969 to 358!

These conferences are intended to stimulate interest and activity in mathematical research. Each five day conference features a distinguished lecturer who delivers ten lectures on a topic of important current research in one sharply focused area of the mathematical sciences. The lecturer subsequently prepares an expository monograph based upon these lectures, which is normally published as a part of a regional conference series. Depending upon the conference topic, the monograph may be published by SIAM, the American Mathematical Society, or jointly by the American Statistical Association and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.

Support for about 30 participants is provided (though deadlines are quickly approaching) and the conference organizer invites both established researchers and interested newcomers, including postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, to attend. Learn more and get registered early.
