Since March, many scientific events that were to be held at CIRM had to be cancelled (see calendar).
We have been keeping upcoming participants regularly informed of the decisions made by the organizers and by 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 after-summer period. One objective is to ensure that we are ready to stage events as they were planned or in a hybrid format that mixes 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 in these uncertain times.
If you have any further question, do not hesitate to contact the CIRM team by e-mail.
- CIRM VIRTUAL EVENTS
CIRM-Luminy hosts several scientific events each week, which unfortunately cannot be held at present.
Meetings and exchanges are the very essence of CIRM. Since the announcement of lockdown, our team has been working to set up a complete audiovisual environment so that organizers can still maintain their event in a virtual form.
We use the Big Blue Button videoconferencing system - linked to our servers, our YouTube channel and our Audiovisual Mathematics Library. In this way, conferences can be recorded and uploaded online at the same time. Our dedicated video team takes care of all technical aspects so that organizers and speakers can concentrate solely on their scientific presentations; as would normally happen onsite.
Carrying on in lockdown!
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.
