The “Sino-French Research Program in Mathematics” (SFRPM) was created in 2011 to enhance the collaborative research between Chinese and French mathematicians. The founding centers of the SFRPM are:
- The Beijing International Center for Mathematical Research of Peking University (BICMR) Website
- The Chern Institute of Mathematics at Nankai University (CIM) Website
- The Fondation Mathématique Jacques Hadamard (FMJH) Website
- The Fondation Sciences Mathématiques Paris (FSMP) Website
- The Institut Joseph Fourier at Grenoble University (UJF) Website
- The School of Mathematical Sciences of the University of Science and Technology of China at Hefei (USTC) Website
The SFRPM is co-directed by Gang Tian (BICMR) and Hans Henrik Rugh (FMJH). It is meant to work in a flexible way and is open to all the branches of mathematics. For each academic year, the total budget of SFRPM is about 100 000 Euros (about 1,000,000 RMB). A scientific committee with six members as follows is responsible for the academic activities of SFRPM:
Gérard Besson (UJF), Sinnou David (FSMP), Jiayu Li (USTC), Lei Fu (CIM), Frank Pacard (FMJH), Gang Tian (BICMR).
Two conferences were sponsored by the SFRPM in 2012 :
-The first one (operator theory) has taken place in Shanghai from July 9 to July 28. For further information, please click here.
-The second one (arithmetic theory) has taken place in Beijing from August 27 to 31. For further information, please click here.
For the academic year 2014 - 2015:
Research in Pair.
This program will help financing one or two weeks long exchanges for a precise scientific research collaboration between Chinese and French mathematicians of the network of institutions involved in the SFRPM. It is expected to have a common publication as an outcome of the collaboration.
To submit your proposal for the Research in Pair Program, please fill in this application form, preferably before December 31st, 2014. Results will hopefully be available by the end of January 2015.
Intensive Workshop Program for Young Researchers.
For the second year, the SFRPM supports an Intensive Workshop Program for Young Researchers. The call for application is launched twice a year. It aims to organize workshops focusing on certain topics with active participation of young researchers. In principal, the workshops could be under various forms (Séminaire Bourbaki type, Arbeitsgemeinshaft type as in Oberwolfach, …). Each workshop is expected to produce some scientific outcomes (for instance, lecture notes, a survey article or book clarifying a recent work, etc.) is produced for each workshop.
The organizing committee of an Intensive Workshop Program for Young Researchers should mainly consists of junior researchers, with at least one Chinese and one French senior researchers belonging to the departments of the founding members of the SFRPM involved.
To submit your proposal for the Intensive Workshop Program for Young Researchers, please fill in this application form, preferably before December 31st, 2014. Results will hopefully be available by the end of January 2015.
