The Simons Foundation announced a new
Simons Collaboration - Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory and
Computation - which grew directly out of ICERM's Fall 2015 ICERM
program "Computational Aspects of the Langlands Program".
The grant, totaling $982,000, will augment ICERM's primary funding from
the National Science Foundation. ICERM will use the additional funding
to improve financial support for the academic leaders of the
institute's semester-long programs and workshops.
ICERM recently received a generous gift of $50,000 from Microsoft
Research. Part of this gift will be used to fund and expand our
GirlsGetMath program. We are very grateful to Microsoft Research for
their continued support.
Sigal is a Professor of Mathematics at UMass Dartmouth, where she also
founded the Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization. She has
extensive experience organizing conferences both at ICERM and around
ICERM's annual sponsorship fee is
allocated for support of an institution's participation in ICERM's
programs and events. Up to 200% of the balance of sponsor funds may be
applied to support the travel of graduate students to our programs.
Sponsor institutions also receive priority status for support at ICERM
events and programs.
