If you wish to propose a special year topic, please email email@example.com with a brief overview of the field, an explanation of recent progress, and a justification for the timeliness of a special year. The proposal does not need to be long (1-2 pages is fine) and should focus on mathematical content, although information about potential senior participants is also useful. We will review proposals during our annual discussion of special year topics in November. If the proposal seems well-suited to a School of Mathematics Special Year, we will contact you to begin more detailed planning.
