The NSF-CBMS Regional Research Conferences in the Mathematical Sciences are a series of five-day conferences each of which features a distinguished
lecturer delivering ten lectures on a topic of important current research in one sharply focused area of the mathematical sciences. CBMS refers to
the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences which publicizes the conferences and administers the resulting publications. Support is provided
for about 30 participants at each conference. Proposals should address the unique characteristics of the NSF-CBMS conferences, outlined in the Program Description. ELIGIBILITY:
(a) Universities and two- and four-year colleges (including community colleges) accredited in, and having a campus located in the US, acting on
behalf of their faculty members; (b) Non-profit, non-academic organizations: Independent museums, observatories, research labs, professional
societies and similar organizations in the U.S. associated with educational or research activities. FUNDING: Each anticipated 1-year award
will total approximately $35,000 including direct and indirect costs. Between 1 and 10 awards each year are anticipated.
