Scientific Themes

Scientific activity at IMSI is organized around a set of themes which have been chosen as focal points for sustained engagement over many years.  These themes typically represent areas which we expect will provide fertile ground for interdisciplinary work involving the mathematical sciences, and where progress has the potential for significant benefits to society.  Long programs, interdisciplinary research clusters, and research collaboration workshops are generally expected to relate strongly to one or more themes.  Standalone workshops will often relate to themes, but may range further afield. The set of themes will evolve over time.  Here, we give a brief description of the Institute’s current themes.
