THE SAMSA MASAMU ADVANCED STUDY INSTITUTE (MASI)
AND WORKSHOPS IN MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES
November 18-27, 2022 in Maputo, Mozambique
THE MASAMU ADVANCED STUDY INSTITUTE (MASI) AND WORKSHOPS IN MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES:
The primary goal of the Masamu Program is to enhance research in mathematical sciences within Southern Africa Mathematical Sciences Association, or SAMSA, (samsa-math.org) institutions through promotion of international research collaboration. A key component of the Masamu Program is the Advanced Study Institute and Workshop Series in mathematical sciences, which provides a platform for such collaboration. The target audiences of the Masamu Advanced Study Institute are undergraduate and graduate students, post-docs, and early career faculty while the workshops are open to all students, faculty, and other researchers in mathematical sciences.
2022 MASI AND WORKSHOPS:
The 2022 MASI and Workshops will be held November 18-27 in Maputo, Mozambique, in conjunction with the 2022 SAMSA Annual Conference. During the institute, participants will work in teams on problems and promising techniques and develop plans for future collaboration. Teams will be led by research faculty members from the Masamu Collaborative Research Network. Participants will be provided materials for them to review before coming to the institute. Each team will work on specific research topics during the institute. In subsequent months, participants will continue to collaboratively work on these research topics, prepare research grant proposals, and prepare research publications and presentations for conferences including the 2023 SAMSA conference.
