Archimede LabEx research programs in residence
 


Archimede LabEx supports research programs in mathematics or computer Science for the academic year 2017-2018.

Archimede LabEx invites proposals for research programs in any branch of mathematics and computer science and their applications.

Archimede LabEx research programs in residence consist of periods ranging from two weeks to three months of intensive research in a given area of mathematics / computer science and their applications.

The proposals are coordinated by one researcher who is a member of one of the following research units and one external researcher:

  • Center for Theoretical Physics (CPT)
  • Marseilles Institute of Mathematics (I2M)
  • Marseilles Laboratory for Fundamental Computer Science (LIF)
  • Laboratory for Information and System Sciences (LSIS)

The International Center for Mathematical Conferences (CIRM) may be associated with the research programs.

Proposals should be addressed to Archimede LabEx Director following the «guidelines for the research programs in residence», and submitted by e-mail.

The following items should be part of the proposal:

  • a scientific program,
  • a list of participants,
  • a budget including potential external sources.

Proposals can be submitted at any time.

 

Guidelines for the research programs in residence
 


1. Archimede LabEx research programs in residence consist of periods of intensive research in a given area of mathematics or computer science and their applications, bringing together researchers from different institutions to work on open problems in the chosen area, and to analyze its current status and perspectives.

2. Archimede LabEx executive committee reviews the proposals and assesses them. The main criteria of the evaluation are: the scientific quality, interdisciplinarity, the participation of young researchers, and the existence of other sources of financial support.

3. Archimede LabEx research programs in residence can run for periods ranging from two weeks to three months. The number of weeks of visitors in Marseilles supported by Archimede LabEx must be at least 8 (for instance, 4 visitors in 2 weeks).

4. Each program must have two scientific coordinators, who are fully responsible for:
a) the planning of all activities included in the program,
b) the elaboration of a list of participants, ordered according to the project priorities
c) the submission of a final report of the program within two months of its completion.

One coordinator must be from one of the following research units, members of Archimede LabEx, and should be present at all times during the program :

  • Center for Theoretical Physics (CPT)
  • Marseilles Institute of Mathematics (I2M)
  • Marseilles Laboratory for Fundamental Computer Science (LIF)
  • Laboratory for Information and System Sciences (LSIS)

5. A research program in residence typically includes daily interactions among the participants, weekly working seminars, intensive workshops, 3 to 5 days long, preferably open to researchers not participating in the program. The workshops could be coordinated with some scientific activities in the CIRM or could be part of a conference organized by the CIRM.

6. The coordinators of a research program in residence should commit themselves to obtaining funds from outside sources. 

7. Once a program has been approved by Archimede LabEx, the organizers will be contacted by the director in order to agree on the following:
a) final dates, length and format of the program,
b) final list of participants, periods of their research visits and financial support offered by Archimede LabEx and outside supporting sources.
