IPAM Room 1200 Dedication 140425IPAM seeks program proposals from the mathematical, statistical, and scientific communities for long programs, workshops, and summer schools.  Most program proposals are reviewed at IPAM’s Science Advisory Board meeting, held in November each year.  If you would like to discuss your program ideas and prepare a proposal for IPAM's consideration, you are encouraged to contact the IPAM Director. For all proposals, please include women and members of underrepresented minorities as organizers, speakers, and participants.  

IPAM accepts proposals for winter workshops and exploratory workshops.

Winter workshops are typically five days in length, held in January or February, and have 20-25 presentations. The Science Advisory Board typically considers proposals for winter workshops a year and several months in advance. Proposals for workshops on multiscale physics will be considered for inclusion in an endowed series made possible by the Julian Schwinger Foundation for Physics Research (JSF).

Exploratory workshops are typically two or three days in length. These workshops address a “hot topic” in applied mathematics. They are organized in just 6-12 months, and may be considered by the Science Advisory Board at any time.


To propose a workshop, please provide:

  • A short description of the mathematical and scientific content of the workshop
  • A description of how the workshop will support IPAM’s goals of promoting inclusivity and diversity
  • Names of individuals to serve on the organizing committee
  • Names, fields and institutions of individuals that you would like to invite as speakers or participants
  • Consideration of other sources of funding
