  1. 2021 African Diaspora Joint Mathematics Workshop

    The African Diaspora Joint Mathematics Workshop (ADJOINT) will take place at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley, CA from June 21 to July 2, 2021.

    ADJOINT is a two-week summer activity designed for researchers with a Ph.D. degree in the mathematical sciences who are interested in conducting research in a collegial environment.  

    The main objective of ADJOINT is to provide opportunities for in-person research collaboration to U.S. mathematicians, especially those from the African Diaspora, who will work in small groups with research leaders on various research projects. 

    Through this effort, MSRI aims to establish and promote research communities that will foster and strengthen research productivity and career development among its participants. The ADJOINT workshops are designed to catalyze research collaborations, provide support for conferences to increase the visibility of the researchers, and to develop a sense of community among the mathematicians who attend. 

    The end goal of this program is to enhance the mathematical sciences and its community by positively affecting the research and careers of African-American mathematicians and supporting their efforts to achieve full access and engagement in the broader research community. 

    Each summer, three to five research leaders will each propose a research topic to be studied during a two-week workshop.

    During the workshop, each participant will: 

    • conduct research at MSRI within a group of four to five mathematicians under the direction of one of the research leaders 
    • participate in professional enhancement activities provided by the onsite ADJOINT Director 
    • receive funding for two weeks of lodging, meals and incidentals, and one round-trip travel to Berkeley, CA 

    After the two-week workshop, each participant will:

    • have the opportunity to further their research project with the team members including the research leader 
    • have access to funding to attend conference(s) or to meet with other team members to pursue the research project, or to present results 
    • become part of a network of research and career mentors
