WARNING : The selection for thematic trimesters takes place in late June. The submission deadlines are May 15th.
The aim of thematic trimesters
The thematic trimesters provide in-depth coverage on a cutting-edge research topic over a period of six weeks (for short programs) or three months (for long programs). The Henri Poincaré institute 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.
The IHP’s Scientific Committee 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.
