Call for Applications: Proposals invited for Tandem-Workshop 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 of 5-11 March 2023.

The workshop with up to 40 participants is held in both locations such that in each place there are 10-20 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 8:30-11 am could match up with RIMS at 4:30-7 pm). 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.

Applications should come with a team of at most four organizers including at least one organizer planning to attend in person for each location. It should contain:

  • Title of the suggested tandem-workshop.
  • Description of the topic and focus of workshop, recent results, references (4-6 pages).

  • Publication lists of the organizers.

Please send proposals (pdf-files) by email to both or one of the directors of MFO and RIMS prior to the deadline 31 July 2021:
