State of I2CAM/I2CAM Coordinating meeting ICAM Annual Conference, Nov 10, 2005: State of I2CAM/I2CAM Coordinating meeting ICAM Annual Conference, Nov 10, 2005 UCSB Outline: Outline Reminder, what is I2CAM Summary of workshops occurred/scheduled Discussion of Fellow Awards Overview of web pages Discussion of Budget What is I2CAM?: What is I2CAM? On Aug. 15, 2004, the NSF awarded an International Materials Institute Award for 5 years at $700,000 per year for the establishment of an International Institute for Complex Adaptive Matter (I2CAM). The goal of I2CAM is to nucleate an international ``institute without walls’’ networking between the 18 US ICAM branches and our European partners at Cambridge, Paris Consortium, Karlsruhe Consortium, Ecole Polytechnique Federale Lausanne (affiliate), Dresden Max Planck Consortium, Erice, ICTP Trieste, and Leibniz Institute Dresden, Sabanci University (Istanbul), The University of Zurich, our Israeli partners in the Tel Aviv University/Weisman Inst./Hebrew University consortium, and our Japanese partners at the University of Kyoto and the Institute for Solid State Physics of the University of Tokyo.

Fellowships available to support for 2-6 months between I2CAM institutions for collaborative research. Full travel and generous perdiem support Students may apply directly (Track 1) or through mentors (Track 2). Junior Travel Awards available for short visits to I2CAM related conferences or for research I2CAM sponsors various workshops around the globe and an annual advanced workshop at Cargese. Applications will be evaluated by the I2CAM Subcommittee of the ICAM Fellowship Committee. Please visit our website for more information and to apply online.
