Research Programs

The ICMAT is organizing three-month and semester thematic research programs, the characteristics of which will be improved with experience, and which are conceived of as a service to the Spanish mathematical community. They have in common that they all involve visits of varying durations by international scholars considered leading experts in their respective disciplines.
