"One of the aims of the PACOMs is to gather mathematicians from all over the world among the presenters as well as among the general participants, and particularly many from Africa. In order to achieve this goal, AMU has instigated a general policy of established a solidarity fund by setting a part of the registration fees, and applying for financial support from some international institutions and sponsors, in order to be able to offer, for some participants across the African continent, who may not be able to secure support elsewhere.
A “PACOM 2021 Grants selection Committee”, appointed by AMU will distribute the grants from the Solidarity Fund amongst the successful applicants. Priority will be given to young mathematicians and African women mathematicians who contribute to the scientific programs.
Grants will be given mainly as partial support to registration fee, accommodation, and travel costs. All potential applicants are advised to apply for funding from other sources as well.
Participants who consider themselves eligible for grants are encouraged to send a grant application. Application form will be available before 1st October 2020 at the PACOM 2021. Interested participants are asked to apply between 1st October and 1st December 2020.
It is necessary to include the following details in the application for grant: Basic personal information (full name, postal and e-mail addresses); Current institution; academic position; country/region ; contribution in the scientific program; Paper or poster submitted ; Academic CV; List of publications ; Current financial situation; a recommendation letter by PhD-supervisor for the PHD students. »
