BIRS is accepting proposals for its 2025 program. The proposal submission deadline for 5-day workshops is Friday, September 15, 2023. In 2025, BIRS will be hosting 5 five-days workshops at the Institute of Mathematics of the University of Granada (IMAG).

BIRS provides an environment for creative interaction and the exchange of ideas and knowledge in the mathematical, statistical, and computing sciences. It seeks to advance research frontiers and facilitate connections between related disciplines and industrial sectors. BIRS and its affiliated facilities offer full accommodation, board, and research facilities at no cost to the invited in-person attendees.

Proposed programs should aim to engage with diverse mathematical communities, in particular those that are geographically close to the locations of the proposed program, and pay special attention to training and mentorship of junior researchers. Applicants are asked to take into consideration BIRS’s commitment to increasing the participation of women and other under-represented minorities in mathematical sciences.

Proposal submission guidelines are available at:

All proposal submissions must be made using the online submission form at:
