COVID-19 Advisory: Please note that due to the Covid-19 crisis, the G-RIPS – Sendai program has been cancelled in 2020. G-RIPS – Sendai will resume again in 2021.
Program Overview: Graduate-Level Research in Industrial Projects for Students (G-RIPS) in Japan will offer graduate students in mathematics and related disciplines the opportunity to work on industry-sponsored research problems in Sendai, Japan. Students from the U.S. and Japan will work on cross-cultural teams on research problems designed by industrial sponsors. The projects will be of serious interest to the sponsor and will offer a stimulating challenge to students; most will involve both analytic and computational work. At the end of the program, the teams will present the results of their work and prepare a final report. IPAM will encourage the U.S. students to publish and/or present their research at conferences in the year following the program. English is the only language required for participation. A description of GRIPS Sendai in 2019 can be found at the following links: English; Japanese.
Round-trip travel to Sendai and accommodations in Sendai are included. Students will also receive a meal allowance and a stipend, and conference support to present their research. (These terms apply to U.S. participants recruited by IPAM.)
