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 201 Physics and Mathematics of Link Homology June 24 – July 5, 2013 in Montréal, Canada

ISM Summer School – May 16-18, 2012, Montréal, Canada
May 16-18, 2012, the Institut des sciences mathématiques (ISM) will be holding a summer school for undergraduate and Master’s students interested in continuing their studies at the graduate level. The aim of the school is to present the ISM, its member universities, and its research groups, namely: analysis, algebra and number theory, combinatorics, non-linear dynamics, geometry and topology, financial mathematics, applied mathematics, mathematical physics, probability and statistics.

ISM Graduate Program in Mathematics
The ISM, a unique consortium of eight Quebec universities, offers a unified graduate program in the mathematical sciences. Through specialized courses and seminars, graduate students quickly become part of inter-university research groups, making the transition from student to researcher perfectly natural. The ISM works closely with the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM), a world-renowned mathematical research centre located in Montreal.

Registration
All interested students are welcome, and registration is free. Please register at:
http://www.math.uqam.ca/ism/ecole/formulaire.php?lang=en

Financial Aid
Participants may apply for financial aid to cover travel costs to attend the School by sending transcripts, a letter of recommendation and a letter of motivation to the following postal or email address by April 25, 2012:

Institut des sciences mathématiques
Université du Québec à Montréal
Case postale 8888, succursale Centre-Ville
Montréal (Québec) Canada H3C 3P8
email: ism@uqam.ca <http://ism@uqam.ca>

It would be helpful in your application if you mention which field of the mathematical sciences is of particular interest to you.

To:

Workshop in Analysis and Probability
Department of Mathematics
Texas A&M University
Summer 2012

The Summer 2012 Workshop in Analysis and  Probability at Texas A&M University will be in session from July 2  until August 10, 2012.  For information about the Workshop, consult the Workshop Home Page, whose NEW URL is

http://www.math.tamu.edu/~kerr/workshop/

The Informal Regional Functional Analysis Seminar (SUMIRFAS) will be held August 3-5.

July 16 – 19 there will be a Concentration Week on “Frame Theory and Maps Between Operator Algebras”,
organized by Chris Heil, Emily J. King (chair), Keri Kornelson, David Larson (local organizer), and Darrin Speegle.  A researcher working in frame theory will naturally be led to consider matrices (the Gram matrix, the analysis operator and the synthesis operator), and many problems in frame theory have a re-casting in operator theory.  The most celebrated example of this is the Kadison-Singer problem.  By now, there are many mathematicians familiar with the basics of the two areas, and there is a fruitful collaboration.  Less obvious is the relationship between frame theory and maps between operator algebras.  Very recent work in this area by Han, Larson, Lu, and Lu indicate that this may be a relationship that is ripe for exploiting.  The goal of this concentration week is to bring together researchers in these two fields so that they may learn from one another and build networks of potential collaborators.  There will be introductory series of talks on “Frame theory” by Ole Christensen, on “Maps on Operator Algebras” by Vern Paulsen, and on “Bridging the Gap Between Frame Theory and Maps on Operator Algebras” by Deguang Han.  This concentration week will also lead into a separate conference on the following weekend celebrating the 70th birthday of David Larson. The home page for this Workshop is at

http://page.math.tu-berlin.de/~king/cw.html

August 6-10 there will be a Concentration Week on “Recent advances in Harmonic Analysis and Spectral Theory”,
organized by Andrew Comech, David Damanik, Constanze Liaw (chair), and Alexei Poltoratski.  This CW is designed to bring together two  groups of experts: those specializing in complex and harmonic analysis and those working in spectral theory of differential operators and mathematical physics. The main goals of the CW are to study new relationships and to widen further participation in this area in the United States. Introductory series of lectures by Stephen Gustafson, Svetlana Jitomirskaya (to be confirmed), Helge Krueger, and Brett Wick are planned to acquaint non-experts with these topics with the reasonable expectation that some the  participants in the larger Workshop will be attracted to this program and inject new ideas into the area.
The home page for this Workshop is at

http://www.math.tamu.edu/~comech/events/hast-2012/

The Workshop is supported in part by grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Minorities, women, graduate students, and young researchers are especially encouraged to attend.

**An opportunity for Graduate Students and Postdocs in Canada**

The 2012 Brisbane Winter School on Geometric Partial Differential Equations

The Winter School will be held at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia July 2nd to July 13th. Designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, the programme will focus on recent progress in
non-linear partial differential equations and their applications,
emphasizing three interlocking themes:

*Nonlinear elliptic equations and their applications to geometry
and optimal transportation

*Geometric flows and applications

*Harmonic maps and applications

The first week will be comprised of introductory lecture courses, while
the second week will focus on key topics in recent research and contemporary applications. These lectures will be presented by world
leaders in the area of Geometric Partial Differential Equations, including:

Robert McCann (Toronto, Canada),
Neil Trudinger (ANU, Australia),
Xu-Jia Wang (ANU, Australia).
Richard Schoen (Stanford, USA),
Gang Tian (Princeton, USA and Beijing, China),
