Campuses:

Annual Thematic Programs

From September to June each year, the IMA explores a theme in applied mathematics through a series of tutorials, workshops, and seminars. The annual program, lasting 10 months and involving more than 1,000 participants, draws a large and diverse community of participants from academia, industry, and government. The annual themes are broad and timely and aim to advance mathematical research, generate new opportunities, and create lasting impacts in various application areas. Generally, 60 percent of the program’s participants are from mathematics departments, and 40 percent are from application fields. Connecting mathematicians with applied scientists in an environment conducive to interdisciplinary collaboration is at the core of the IMA’s mission and a major outcome of this yearly program.
