The steering board of the “Séminaire de Mathématiques Supérieures” (SMS) invites letters of intent from potential organizers of the 2024 summer school. The letter (suggested length: 1-2 pages) should contain the proposed title of the school, names and affiliations of the organizers, as well as a short description of proposed mini-courses and the names and affiliations of prospective lecturers.

The main institutional partners of the SMS are the Centre de Recherches Mathematiques (Montréal), the Fields Institute (Toronto), the Pacific Institute for Mathematical Sciences (Vancouver) and the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (Berkeley). It also receives the support of the Institut des Sciences Mathématiques and of the Université de Montréal.
The selection of the winning proposal will be made by the steering board composed of Hélène Barcelo (MSRI), Octav Cornea (U de M and CRM), Henri Darmon (McGill), Deirdre Haskell (McMaster and Fields), Nilima Nigam (Simon Fraser) and Iosif Polterovich (U de M, SMS Director).
