Each year since 1998, MSRI has held week-long workshop on some areas of intense mathematical activity. In honour of the 2013 special year on the Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE 2013) MSRI will run a Hot Topics' workshop on one of the subjects pertinent to that thematic year. The workshop should last 5 days (or less) . If you are interested in proposing such a workshop please let us know.
To be considered for the spring or fall of year n+1, a proposal should be received by November 1 of year n. All proposals will be considered by the Institute's Scientific Advisory Council. To be most useful, a proposal should contain:
- A short summary of what is going on in the field, especially what makes it suitable for treatment at this moment
- A list of possible organizers and/or main speakers for the workshop. This list need not be complete, and the proposer does not have to contact the people listed in advance.
- Any known information about other recent or proposed conferences in the area.
