RIMS Research Projects
An international joint research program implemented in combination with any of the several types of Joint Research Activities described below. Leading researchers in their respective fields are invited and stay at RIMS for a medium to long-term, working on specific research subjects for a period of several months to one year. RIMS chooses and implements more than one project under this RIMS Research Project each academic year. Call for proposal is published in around June each academic year for projects to be implemented two years later. Each applicant should organize an organizing committee comprising several members to submit an application. Projects under this RIMS Research Project are implemented to develop researchers who will lead research projects in the fields of mathematics and mathematical sciences in the future. RIMS may recommend young researchers who participate, in cooperation with leading researchers, in planning, drawing and implementing international research projects as "RIMS Project Fellows."
List of future RIMS Research Projects
Outline of the Several Types of Joint Research Activities
[RIMS Workshops (Type A,B,C)] Open or closed workshop
- A: A group consisting of at least two researchers shall be formed. The researchers conduct joint research at RIMS for a few days to two weeks. RIMS starts accepting applications around September each academic year.
- B: A group comprising a few researchers, including at least one foreign researcher and Japanese researcher, conducts joint research at RIMS for a few days to about one week. RIMS accepts proposals throughout the year.
- C: A group comprising a few foreign researchers conducts a joint research at RIMS for a few days to about one week. RIMS starts accepting applications around April each academic year.
[RIMS Symposia] Open Symposia
These are an open workshop style joint research. The program of this joint research shall be notified to organizations/institutions in Japan. RIMS starts accepting applications around September each academic year.
[RIMS Satellite Seminars] Closed seminar
These are a closed seminar where researchers invited from both within and outside Japan stay at a venue outside RIMS and discuss research subjects in mathematical sciences. The purpose of these seminars is to promote rapid progress in target research areas and help develop future leaders in those areas. RIMS starts accepting applications around April each academic year.
[RIMS Review Seminars] Open or closed seminar
These are a Joint Research Activities in which intensive discussions on new fields and new trends in research are conducted by researchers specialized in those fields and trends. The purpose of these seminars is to share information on the new fields and new trends in research among related researchers’ groups rapidly and promote joint researches smoothly and speedily. RIMS starts accepting applications around April each academic year.
