EPSRC-LMS Durham Symposia

This meeting is held in July and usually lasts 10 days with up to around 70 participants from different branches of mathematics.  Preliminary proposals are made approximately two years in advance of the meeting.  Prospective organisers should read the guidance notes (see weblink below).  Each symposium is funded by a substantial EPSRC research grant.
Sponsor guidelines: http://www.lms.ac.uk/activities/rmc/index.html

LMS Research Workshops

These can be research workshops held anywhere in the UK and are an opportunity for a small group of active researchers to work together for a concentrated period, on a specialised topic.  There is no prescribed format for the workshop but it is expected that the number of participants will be no more than 40 and could be as low as 10, meeting for a period of one week or more.
Applicants are advised to contact Professor Nick Manton (manton@lms.ac.uk) informally about their proposed programme and timescale before making an application.
Sponsor guidelines: http://www.lms.ac.uk/activities/rmc/index.html

EPSRC-LMS Short Instructional Courses

The principal aim of the programme is to provide training for postgraduate students in core areas of mathematics.  It is expected that the course will be accessible to first year research students not least to accommodate students from related areas.  Prospective organisers should refer to the sponsor guidelines (see weblink below) and contact the Short Course Facilitator, Dr Riaz Ahmad (facilitator@lms.ac.uk) in the first instance.

Royal Society of Edinburgh International Open Exchange Programme

This programme supports researchers wishing to further collaboration with research groups in other countries not covered by bilateral agreements.  The grants are for visits of one to four weeks' duration. The society will provide funding to cover travel, visa, subsistence and accommodation costs.
Award maximum not specified.
Deadlines in 2010: 15th January; 7th April; June (date tbc) and 10th October
