Summer Graduate School

IAS/PCMI Summer 2012: Geometric Group Theory July 01, 2012 - July 21, 2012
Parent Program: --
Location: IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute, Salt Lake City, Utah
Organizers Mladen Bestvina (University of Utah), Michah Sageev (Technion – Israel Institute of Technology), and Karen Vogtmann (Cornell University)

Some mobility between the Research in Mathematics and Graduate Summer School programs is expected and encouraged, but interested candidates should read the guidelines carefully and apply to the one program best suited to their field of study and experience. Postdoctoral scholars who are working in the field of Geometric Group Theory should apply to the Research Program in Mathematics, not to the Graduate Summer School.

Graduate students who are beyond their basic courses and recent PhDs in all fields of mathematics are encouraged to apply to the Graduate Summer School.  Funding will go primarily to graduate students.  Postdoctoral scholars not working in the field of Geometric Group Theory should also apply, but should be within four years of receipt of their PhD.

Deadline for submission of applications is January 31, 2012. Supplemental materials (such as Reference Letters) must be received in the PCMI office by February 4, 2012.   Please plan accordingly. (Late applications may be accepted at the discretion of the organizers.) Response may be expected in early April.  Financial support is available.  Applicants are invited to request financial support by checking the appropriate boxes on the application form.

Please visit the PCMI workshop home page for further details on the subject and the format of the summer school.  Complete information will be available on November 1, 2011

Special restrictions:

  1. In addition to the nomination at MSRI, a separate PCMI Application (Application deadline: January 31, 2012) is required to participate in this workshop.
  2. Due to the small number of students supported by MSRI, only one student per institution will be accepted.
