A joint programme between Cirm and Aix-Marseille University
Every winter, a Thematic Month is proposed at CIRM, in collaboration with the departments of Mathematics, Theoretical Physics and Information Technology at Aix-Marseille University. Participating departments include the following:
This 4 (or 5)-week session mixes conference weeks and research schools and its aim is to focus at length on a particular theme, such as Dynamical Systems, Statistics, Probability, Cryptography, etc. This special focus also serves to enhance the international profile of some of the areas in which Aix-marseille University and FRUMAM are at the leading edge.
The 'Thematic Month' starts every year during the first week of February. It is sometimes coupled with the general topic of the Jean-Morlet Chair taking place that particular semester, thus allowing exchanges, co-funding opportunities and a larger international presence. However, this is not compulsory.
Selected applications are granted a subsidy by CIRM in the shape of "CIRM Days" (free board and lodging at the centre for 5 days for up to 40 people - as long as the event reaches at least 60 participants). Note that CIRM may choose to support all weeks in a Thematic Month or only some of them. This depends on the overall budget and must be checked with the Event and Budget Officers. Additional external funding must be found to cover additional participants, who can also support themselves. The cost of a week at CIRM is around 540 euros.
