CIRM is one of four partners of 'CARMIN' (Centre d'Accueil et de Rencontres Mathématiques INternationales), an initiative which is one of the many projects of the Investissements d'Avenir programme launched by the French Government to support Higher Education and Research. It is known as a LaBex (Research Department of Excellence) and its particularity is that it does not focus on one scientific department or on one region in particular, but on infrastructure used to support mathematics.
CARMIN has several objectives, but its main goal is to strengthen the place of the four French centres: CIRM (Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques), CIMPA (Centre International de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées), IHES (Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques) and IHP (Institut Henri Poincaré) through closer collaborations and through the development of a high quality national infrastructure comparable to the offer abroad.
Every year, CIRM and these other centres collaborate on several initiatives. Two main areas in particular have benefited from this joint collaboration at CIRM, i.e 'Events' and the Audiovisual Mathematics Library.
CIRM is one of the partners of 'ARCHIMEDE', an initiative which is one of the many projects of the Investissements d'Avenir programme launched by the French Government to support Higher Education and Research.
This LabEx combines departments based in the Marseille area: CIRM (Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques), CPT (Centre de Physique Théorique), I2M (Institut de Mathématiques de Marseille), LIF (Laboratoire d’Informatique Fondamentale) and LSIS (Laboratoire des Sciences de l’Information et des Systèmes). Together, these CNRS-University research units employ leading scientists from all over the world, and cover all fields of research in mathematics and computer sciences at Aix-Marseille University (AMU).
The goals of the LabEx ARCHIMEDE are:
Every year, LabEx ARCHIMEDE selects events that have been approved for CIRM's upcoming calendar and grants additional funding.
