Call for Applications: Proposals invited for MATRIX-MFO Tandem Workshop in September 2025

The Mathematical Research Institute Oberwolfach (MFO), Germany, and the Australian Mathematical Research Institute MATRIX invite proposals for a tandem workshop taking place simultaneously in a hybrid format at MATRIX and MFO in the week of 21-26 September 2025.

The workshop is held simultaneously in both locations. At each institute about 20 participants are possible (up to 25 at MFO), who can interact in the usual intense way locally and in addition share a certain number of joint lectures/discussions via zoom (for example Oberwolfach 9-11 am could match up with MATRIX at 5-7 pm). Talks given outside this time slot can be recorded via zoom for viewing by participants at the other institute, but not publicly.

Applications should come with a team of about four organizers including at least two organizers planning to attend in person for each location. Organizers should aim for gender balance. The application should contain:

  • Title of the suggested tandem workshop.
  • Description of the topic and focus of workshop, recent results, references (4-6 pages).
  • The proposed provisional program of the tandem workshop taking into account the different time zones.
  • List of about 20 suggested participants at each institute with names, gender info and affiliation planned for each institute (i.e. two lists of intended invitees; please consider diversity issues of each institute).
  • Publication lists of the organizers.

Please send proposals (pdf-files) by email to the director of MFO and.or upload to the MATRIX website ( prior to the deadline 1 September 2024:
