Important information for proposers

All proposals must be submitted in accordance with the requirements specified in this funding opportunity and in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted. It is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets these requirements. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.


Conferences, workshops, and related events (including seasonal schools and international travel by groups) support research and training activities of the mathematical sciences community.  Proposals for conferences, workshops, or conference-like activities may request funding of any amount and for durations of up to three years.  Proposals under this solicitation must select "Conference" as the proposal type, and they must be submitted to the appropriate DMS programs in accordance with the lead-time requirements, submission windows, or deadlines specified on the program web page. See the DMS Programs page and click on the appropriate program for program-specific information.

Program contacts


Please consult a Program Officer who represents the DMS program corresponding to the proposed meeting's topical area.  See https://www.nsf.gov/funding/programs.jsp?org=DMS 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.
