The Center for  Mathematics at Notre Dame seeks Program proposals for  2015.

Please read the description of this year's Program before preparing your proposal. This will give you an idea of what we envision.

A Program should include the following activities:

1. Mini-courses, at least one of which is aimed at graduate students (either beginning or advanced).

2. Some activities directed to honors (or honors-level) undergraduate students.  For example, this could entail another mini-course, or a research/mentoring activity.  The staff at Notre Dame will help hiring someone that can organize the undergraduate week.

3.  A conference.

The proposal should be 1 - 2 pages in length, and should include the following information:

1. Names and contact information of the organizing committee.

2. A brief description of the theme of the program, and a rationale for its broad appeal.

3. A tentative list of the mini-courses, with a brief synopsis and aims of each, along with the names of potential lecturers.

4. A tentative list of speakers for the conference.

5. A commitment to produce a volume of proceedings which would include lecture notes of the mini-courses, to be published as part of the Notre Dame Mathematical Lectures series.

The budget for each Program is estimated to be $75,000, with separate funds available for the production and publication of the proceedings.

The organizers are expected to secure additional external funds. The staff at Notre Dame will help in preparing a proposal.

It would be desirable, but not mandatory, to include a public lecture in conjunction with the Program.

Proposals should be submitted by e-mail to Lisa Driver (  on or before April 1, 2013.  The Scientific Committee of
the Center for Mathematics at Notre Dame will make its selections by May 15, 2013.
