Scientific Committee

Cirm invites proposals for mathematical events of different durations, in various CIRM programs, and in any branch of mathematics or mathematical sciences.

  • To ensure the best quality in its selection, the Scientific Committee meets twice a year to review proposals for large events (conferences, research schools, thematic months, multi-year programs, CEMRACS and Jean-Morlet Chair semesters). It’s during these meetings that CIRM subsidies are decided upon.
  • Deadlines for calls for proposals are normally set at the middle of April and end  middle of October of any given year, for events that will take place on average two years later. Oral presentations are also organised for applicants to the ‘Jean-Morlet Chair’, ‘CEMRACS’, ‘Thematic Month’ and ‘Multi-Year Programme’ programmes.
  • Proposals received for the ‘Workshops’ and ‘Research in Residence’ programmes (rolling applications) are usually discussed remotely by the Scientific Committee and at various times during the year to ensure a rapid response.
  • The Scientific Council also has an important role in assessing and proposing CIRM’s general scientific policy and works to monitor new developments in basic and applied research and in interactions with other fields, with industry and society at large.
