Congratulations to the recipients of the Mathematical Sciences Sponsorship Fund 2016

Congratulations to the successful applicants of the Mathematical Sciences Sponsorship Fund 2016! They have been awarded funds ranging from US$500 to US$5,000 for their respective projects.

The Elsevier Mathematical Sciences Sponsorship Fund was started in 2014 to support events, projects and activities that benefit individuals and groups within the mathematical sciences.

We would like to thank all 135 applicants for taking the time to apply and we wish the following winners success in their projects.

Andreas Kyprianou applied for funding to go towards scholarships that will financially assist young researchers in attending the Bernoulli pre-meeting and the Bernoulli World Congress meeting that are hosted by the Fields Institute in Toronto, Canada.

Annamaria Barbagallo applied for financial assistance towards scholarships for young researchers to participate and give contributed talks at 66th International Workshop “Advances in Convex Analysis and Optimization” at the Ettore Majorana Center in Erice, Italy.

Balazs Szendroi and Michael Gahirima applied to fund participation of Masters and doctoral students and young faculty from sub-Saharan Africa at the 2016 ICTP-EAUMP School in Number Theory, to be held at the University of Rwanda.

Gurpreet Singh applied for funding to travel to the ‘7th European Congress of Mathematics’, Berlin, Germany, where he will be presenting his research.

Henk Bruin applied on behalf of the Lorentz Center in Leiden, Netherlands, to fund travel grants for young researchers to attend a workshop titled ‘Taking the Measure of One-Dimensional Dynamics’.
