African Diaspora Joint Mathematics

2024 African Diaspora Joint Mathematics Workshop (ADJOINT2024) June 24, 2024 to July 05, 2024
The African Diaspora Joint Mathematics Workshop (ADJOINT) will take place at the Simons Laufer Mathematical Sciences Institute in Berkeley, CA from June 24 to July 5, 2024. ADJOINT is a two-week summer activity designed for researchers with a Ph.D. degree in the mathematical sciences who are interested in conducting research in a collegial environment.   The main objective of ADJOINT is to provide opportunities for in-person research collaboration to U.S. mathematicians, especially those from the African Diaspora, who will work in small groups with research leaders on various research projects.  Through this effort, SLMath aims to establish and promote research communities that will foster and strengthen research productivity and career development among its participants. The ADJOINT workshops are designed to catalyze research collaborations, provide support for conferences to increase the visibility of the researchers, and to develop a sense of community among the mathematicians who attend.  The end goal of this program is to enhance the mathematical sciences and its community by positively affecting the research and careers of African-American mathematicians and supporting their efforts to achieve full access and engagement in the broader research community.  Each summer, three to five research leaders will each propose a research topic to be studied during a two-week workshop. During the workshop, each participant will:  conduct research at SLMath within a group of four to five mathematicians under the direction of one of the research leaders  participate in professional enhancement activities provided by the onsite ADJOINT Director  receive funding for two weeks of lodging, meals and incidentals, and one round-trip travel to Berkeley, CA  After the two-week workshop, each participant will: have the opportunity to further their research project with the team members including the research leader  have access to funding to attend conference(s) or to meet with other team members to pursue the research project, or to present results  become part of a network of research and career mentors Eligibility Applicants must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, possess a Ph.D. in the mathematical sciences, and be employed at a U.S. institution. Selection Process The guiding principle in selecting participants and establishing the groups is the creation of diverse teams whose members come from a variety of institutional types and career stages. The degree of potential positive impact on the careers of African-Americans in the mathematical sciences will be an important factor in the final decisions. 2024 Research Leaders and Topics (Information coming in late September 2024.)
