MSRI Graduate Summer Schools 2014

The nomination period for MSRI’s 2014 summer graduate schools (see poster below) will begin on Monday, December 2nd.

To be considered for these programs, students should send me a short statement containing the following information, no later than Thursday, November 28th:

  • explanation of your interest in attending a particular school
  • year of study
  • advisor’s name (if applicable)
  • list of previous summer schools attended (including source of funding).


In cooperation with Centro de Investigaci n en Matem ticas (CIMAT), MSRI will sponsor a summer graduate school on Algebraic Topology in Guanajuato, Mexico in 2014.  The school will reprise the very successful school held at MSRI in the summer of 2013.

Algebraic Topology

Held at CIMAT in Guanajuato, Mexico

Organizers: Mike Hill (University of Virginia), Jos  Mar a Cantarero L pez


June 30 — July 11, 2014

Modern algebraic topology is a broad and vibrant field which has seen recent progress on classical problems as well as exciting new interactions with applied mathematics.  This summer school will consist of a series of lecture by experts on major research directions, including several lectures on applied algebraic topology.  Participants will also have the opportunity to have guided interaction with the seminal texts in the field, reading and speaking about the foundational papers.

Please note that any student who attended the school at MSRI will be ineligible to attend.


Students must be nominated by the department to be able to participate
in the following workshops.

As U of t is a full-level academic sponsor of MSRI, the department can
nominate two students per summer and a third if at least one of them is
female or from a group that is underrepresented in the mathematical sciences.

If you wish to be considered for nomination, please provide Ida  with
the following information as soon as possible:

Your Name:

Your supervisor's name (if you have one):

Your e-mail address:

Summer School Name:

Short Justification as to why attending the summer school is good
for your program of study: 

This coming summer MSRI is hosting three summer graduate schools in Berkeley, CA and co-sponsoring two* additional schools at off-site locations:

Algebraic Topology

June 17 – 28, 2013 at MSRI

Séminaire de Mathématiques Supérieures 2013: Physics and Mathematics of Link Homology

June 24 – July 5, 2013 in Montréal, Canada


IAS/PCMI Summer 2013: Geometric Analysis

June 30 – July 20, 2013 in Park City, Utah

New Geometric Techniques in Number Theory

July 1 – 12, 2013 at MSRI

Introduction to the Mathematics of Seismic Imaging

July 29 – August 9, 2013 at MSRI

* There is a strong possibility that we will be offering one additional international summer school.  We will send you more information when we receive confirmation.


The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) at Berkeley
provides support (travel and local expenses) for two
University of Toronto mathematics graduate students,
three if one of the three is female or from
a group that is underrepresented in the mathematical sciences,
to attend one of their summer graduate schools.  The five schools
are listed below.  

If you wish to be considered for nomination or you have a
student you wish to consider for nomination, please provide the
following information to Ida no later than Friday, October 28th:

Student's Name:

Student's Supervisor: 

Student's e-mail address:

Summer Graduate School of interest:

Short description as to why this school would be of importance:

We usually give preference to the more senior students, though we
may deviate from that if a particular workshop seems like a particularly
great match for some particular younger student.
