BUDGET 

The budget consists of the following components. The amounts will depend on the duration and amplitude of the proposed program:

  1. NSERC funding: costs related to the scientific activities included in the program: workshops, schools, graphic design (posters and web page banners);
  2. Up to 2 Aisenstadt chairs;
  3. Simons funding (subject to extension of our grant, spring 2024):
  • 1. Visiting professors and scholars;
  • 2. 1 full or 2 halves postdoctoral fellow support;
  • 3. In exceptional cases: support for 1 teaching-relief for an organizer;
  1. FRQ funding: French researchers participating in thematic program activities;
  2. CNRS-IRL possible support for long-term stays for French researchers (to be discussed with the IRL director);
  3. Outside sources: organizers are encouraged to apply for financial support from other organizations, such as NSF, Clay Mathematics Institute, etc.

Note : We strongly suggest avoiding organizing activities on public holidays.

If this were to be the case the support provided by the CRM would take into account the additional overtime cost for the personel, the amound would be subsumed within the budget offered.
