Through the CIMPA-CARMIN program the organizers wish to fund, with the support of the Labex CARMIN, the CIMPA and IHP, the participation of several young mathematicians from developing countries to the activities of the semester.
Young scientists (master students soon looking for a PhD, PhD students, postdocs) meeting those criteria and interested in the topics are much encouraged to apply for a support to participate on the CIMPA web page.
