Please consult a Program Officer who represents the DMS program corresponding to the proposed meeting's topical area.  See for a list of DMS programs. A proposal may identify more than one program of interest. A conference proposal without a disciplinary focus may be eligible under certain circumstances for submission to the Mathematical Sciences Infrastructure program. Please check that program's webpage for applicable details.
