Call for proposals / appel à projets

[Thematic Programmes] 3 & 6 & 12 weeks (2027)

Institut Henri Poincaré - Sorbonne Université / CNRS
11 Rue Pierre et Marie Curie, 75005 Paris

Submit a programme proposal

If you wish to submit a thematic programme proposal, kindly follow the guidelines indicated below. 

The selection for thematic programs takes place in late June.

The submission deadlines are May 15th, 2023.

The aim of thematic programs

The thematic programs provide in-depth coverage on a cutting-edge research topic over a period of three weeks or six weeks (for short programs) or twelve weeks (for long programs). The Institut Henri Poincaré welcomes all fields of mathematics, theoretical physics and computer science, from theory to practical applications, and is also open to other interfaces such as mathematical biology.

IHP’s Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) will give special consideration to applications related to topics which have not recently been selected for scientific activities at the Institute. This includes in particular, but not exhaustively: statistics, scientific computing, high-energy physics, image processing, …

The Institut Henri Poincaré is committed to address the gender balance issue and to contribute to improve diversity. Therefore, proposals must pay attention to involving a sensible gender ratio and to ensuring equal opportunity for speakers, participants, and in both the organizing committee and the scientific committee.

How to apply

We invite you to submit a 3- to 10-page proposal comprising:

  • the title and acronym of the proposal,
  • a list of the organising committee members,
