Call for Applications: Proposals invited for Tandem-Workshop 2024 at MFO and RIMS

The Mathematical Research Institute Oberwolfach (MFO), Germany and the Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences (RIMS), Kyoto University, Japan invite proposals for a Tandem-Workshop taking place simultaneously in a hybrid format at MFO and RIMS in the week 22-28 September 2024.

The workshop with up to 50 participants is held in both locations such that in each place there are 15-25 participants 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 8:30-12 am could match up with RIMS at 3:30-7 pm). Invitations of their suggested participants will be sent out by each center with their own standard procedure. Emphasis is on on-site participation at the centers, online participation is reserved to justified exceptions (weak pandemic assumed). Talks which are given outside this time slot can be recorded via zoom such they are also available to the participants at the other institute.
