This document provides a broad
outline of the procedures used by SEAMS to organize SEAMS Schools. Each SEAMS
school has its own characteristics. All proposed SEAMS school projects will be
evaluated by the SEAMS School Committee (SSC).
A. Eligibility and Objectives
Each institution (research center or
university) in any country in South East Asia is eligible to propose to conduct
a SEAMS school. The proposal must be submitted for evaluation to SSC. Acceptance
or rejection of a school project is decided by SSC. The objectives of the SEAMS
School are as follows.
SEAMS school is intended to provide opportunity to have an advanced learning
experience in mathematics, and to introduce a research-based learning for
undergraduate as well as master students of the country in which it is held,
and for those of countries nearby. Women are especially encouraged to participate
in this school.
school can be also considered as a preparation for students to be able to
attend the CIMPA Schools. A leading academic institution or national
mathematical society from each country member of SEAMS is eligible to hold such
a school under a selection procedure.
subject of the SEAMS school must correspond to prior on-site research and/or
advanced teaching work. It must have a foreseeable development in the region.
project must be planned at least 6 months – 1 year in advance. The proposal of
the projects must be submitted on October
30th every year. The evaluation of the projects will be done by SEAMS
School Committee (SSC). The decision is made on November 30th. The implementation of the project will be
in the following year. For the 2014
SEAMS schools, the deadline for the proposals submission is February 15th 2014. The
decision is made on February 28th
2014. All the proposals are submitted to Intan Muchtadi: email@example.com and cc to firstname.lastname@example.org.
research school has a scientific organizer consisting of at least 2 persons.
SEAMS school takes place at least in 7 working days and comprises at least 35 hours
of talks and at least 10 hours of group discussions.
level of the school is equivalent to advanced undergraduate course or master course.
lectures should be designed by considering the scientific contents as well as
the pedagogical approaches. The lecturers should be selected according the
theme of the school.
each course in the project proposal, the summary must be provided as well as
the lecturers assigned to this course.
SEAMS school is intended to promote the development of mathematics; the
lecturers are thus not remunerated.
organizer of a proposed SEAMS school must seek to secure diversified sources of
funding: local (universities, centers, ministries, ministries, etc.) and international
(ICTP, IMU, Embassies, etc.)
SEAMS school will receive a financial support between 4500 – 5000 euros from
CIMPA. At least 2/3 of CIMPA support
need to be used for travel and/or living expenses of young researchers (less
than 38 or recent PhD) from neighboring countries of the activity; at most 1/3
at most can be used for lecturers (economy class travel and/or standard living
common site is strongly recommended for the talks, meals and accommodation.
Preferably all meals are taken together, at least those at midday.
site is simple and adequate for the talks. SEAMS schools do not take place in
documentation for the courses should be available on site.
site is favorable to idea exchanges, discussions and informal working sessions.
excursion-walk, for example on Saturday, can be organized. A financial
participation can be required.
of the School
SEAMS School Committee (SSC) selects and approves the projects. Once approved, the
chair of SSC will contact the scientific organizer of the school.
scientific organizer sets up a website for the school and maintains it. This
website provide all information regarding the implementation of the school.
sets up a webpage concerning the research school and a link towards the SEAMS
Selection of the participant
candidates fill-out the application form and send together with their CVs to
the scientific organizer of the school.
months before the beginning of the SEAMS school, the scientific organizer
selects the participants, as well as the ones who will be funded by CIMPA. A
maximum amount of travel expenses is fixed for each one. The list of the
candidates who will receive the support should be approved by SSC and/or CIMPA.
people who receive the financial support should buy their own travel tickets
first. Then, they will be refunded at real cost, not exceeding the maximum
amount allocated. The purchase of the ticket by other manner can be studied by SSC,
at the request of the participants.
scientific organizer of the school must write a report on the implementation of
the SEAMS school. The report consists of summary of the school, objectives and
rationale, organizers and lecturers, list of participants, school program,
conclusion and financial report consisting of all the received financial
supports as well as the detailed and total expenses. The financial report for
CIMPA funding must follow the requirement of CIMPA. Within one month after the
implementation of the SEAMS school, the report should be sent to SSC as well as
report also consists of some photos representing the school.
