Where you are.

Plenary Writer

Do you have a paper that you think you could finish, if you just had 48 uninterrupted hours?
Do you never seem to get those hours, because of intense daily human care responsibilities in your home?

We want you to finish that paper.

On two weekends in spring 2020, we will give a room of one's own to mathematicians who are in a life stage with intense human demands. Simultaneously across the nation, we will all work together in a community experience combining the best of solidarity and solitarity.
Each event will take place from late afternoon on a Friday until Sunday evening.

On the Friday afternoon, we'll check into our hotel.
We'll work on our papers until Sunday night.
Then we'll go home.

We believe that the chance for a qualitatively different kind of time will have a high impact.

We have limited funding for this new model of mathematical event. We will prioritize funding mathematicians with intense daily human care responsibilities in their homes. But note that all mathematicians are welcome to join our community event, whether working from home, a hotel, or anywhere else.

To apply to participate, without requesting funding for hotel costs, apply here:
apply without funding

Applications (for either event) received by 5 January 2020 will receive full consideration.

Note: this funding is available to mathematicians living and working in the US. International participants can apply to participate without funding.
Where is the hotel? Your choice, near where you live, to eliminate travel time.
All participants will agree to participate in the full community event, including emails before and after the event, and carefully moderated communications and coaching during the event.
All participants will agree to the welcoming, encouraging and respectful ethos of the event, as well as a common-sense code of conduct.
