Several scientific events that were to be held at CIRM have been cancelled (see calendar). We will keep upcoming participants regularly informed of the decisions taken by the organizers and our trustees.
CIRM continues to be in regular contact with organizing teams in order to plan and prepare events for the next 2 years. We are also actively anticipating the easing of lockdown. One objective is to ensure that, in the re-opening period, we are ready to stage events that mix face-to-face, centre-based participation with remote participation. Our hope is also that the events we were obliged to cancel find a new place in our calendar.
Many thanks for your understanding and attention in these uncertain times. If you have any further question, please contact us to speak directly to the team, currently working remotely.
We can still be reached by e-mail.
CURRENT VIRTUAL EVENTS
Virtual Geometric Group Theory conference
1 - 5 June 2020
Tara Brendle (University of Glascow)

Geometric group theory is the study of infinite discrete groups using geometric techniques inspired broadly by classical Riemannian geometry, while also borrowing ideas from other mathematical domains such as formal language theory and algebraic topology. The field has developed rapidly and is currently very active, with many innovative projects reaching in new directions. This conference will highlight the interaction between two main themes in the field : Artin groups on the one hand, and CAT(0) geometry on the other hand. Although these two themes will be the leitmotivs of the conference, related topics such as Coxeter groups, 3-dimensional manifolds, automorphisms of free groups and mapping class groups are also included in the topics in order to enrich exchanges between participants and inspire ideas for developing new research projects.
Geometry and Dynamics of Foliations
May 18 to 22

Foliation Theory is a lively subject lying at a crossroad of many mathematical disciplines. The School “Geometry and Dynamics of Foliations” aims at presenting to young mathematicians some of the different techniques used by practitioners of the field. The topics of the mini-courses give a panorama of recent developments in Foliation Theory, ranging from algebraic-geometric to dynamical contributions.
This event is part of a series of three activities focusing on Foliation Theory and Complex Geometry at CIRM-Luminy in 2020.
Mathematical Methods of Modern Statistics 2
Méthodes Mathématiques en Statistiques Modernes 2
15 - 19 June 2020
Małgorzata Bogdan (Wrocław University)
Piotr Graczyk (Université d’Angers)
Fabien Panloup (Université d’Angers)
Frédéric Proïa (Université d’Angers)
Étienne Roquain (Sorbonne Université)
CIRM attracts mathematicians from all over the world. Each year, over 4500 researchers meet here to exchange ideas and share their knowledge.
As part of the CARMIN Labex initiative, CIRM keeps an audiovisual record of these research activities and makes films available to all.
The Audiovisual Mathematics Library is a sophisticated platform built on a corpus of talks given by worldwide mathematicians during their stay at CIRM. Over 1000 videos are available, with a high number offering enriched material such as cue points to enable chaptering, multiple synced video streams and deep search.
