The program in Geometric Analysis supports research on differential geometry and its relation to partial differential equations and variational principles; aspects of global analysis, including the differential geometry of complex manifolds and geometric Lie group theory; geometric methods in modern mathematical physics; and geometry of convex sets, integral geometry, and related geometric topics.
Principal Investigators should carefully read the program solicitation "Conferences and Workshops in the Mathematical Sciences" (link below) to obtain important information regarding the substance of proposals for conferences, workshops, summer/winter schools, and similar activities.
For conference proposals with budgets not exceeding $50,000, which in accordance with NSF policy can be reviewed internally at NSF, the following target dates are in effect: For an event that will start on a date prior to October 1 during a given calendar year, the proposal should be submitted in September of the previous year. For an event that will start in the period October 1 through December 31 of a given year, the proposal should be submitted in April of the same year. A conference proposal with a budget request exceeding $50,000 should be submitted at least eight months before the event is scheduled to take place, in order to allow time for external review.
For fiscal year 2021, the September due date for conference proposals is waived in view of the current pandemic. Please submit conference proposals for in-person meetings with budget requests not exceeding $50,000 at least four months in advance of the conference dates. No decisions will be made on proposals to support in-person conferences until it is established whether any pandemic-related travel restrictions for the conference site and time frame will be in place.
