This is a virtual scientific conference. You can publish at this site anything you could present at a scientific meeting:

  • new research results;
  • your articles and books;
  • research ideas, which you could talk to colleagues verbally;
  • presentations, talks and videos;
  • curious science facts;
  • and even science-related jokes.

The conference is currently centered on mathematics, but all sciences are accepted. The topics include pure math, applied math, math in physics and other sciences, theoretical computer science.

Unlike a real math conference, this virtual one runs not say every year but constantly all time.

Research in the middle

Another usage of this site is to publish research-in-the-middle: rough research ideas (such as proof ideas), negative results, incomplete calculations, etc.

We will follow general ideas and conventions of Polymath Project.

However, this project is a dual of Polymath project:

  • Polymath is for precisely formulated problems, this wiki is not only for precise formulations but also for rough ideas.
  • Polymath is for problems of interest to wide variety of mathematicians, this wiki is for more special problems which may involve additional learning before joining projects presented on this site.
  • Polymath develops primarely on blogs and then in the wiki, this project is meant to be developed inside this wiki (don't hesitate to use blogs if you want, however).
  • Polymath project comes in waves focusing on particular problems. This site is to present as much problems as possible, simultaneously.

This project is similar to Polymath project in the respect that these both are for massively collaborated math research.

The list of our research projects is available at Category:Research in the middle. Please participate in these projects.

Sections

Feel free to create new sections you may want to place references to your research in.

About this site

When adding new research items to this site press "Signature and timestamp" button to mark that you are the author and add the time when the item was added.

Should we adapt the policy that every research item is at a separate page, or should we allow several related items (by several unrelated author?) at one page? Placing every item at a separate page has the advantage that we may categorize the items by (among other categorization) author name.

Currently this site is run on conference.portonvictor.org domain. We should get top-level domain instead. If you want to donate money for a domain, please contact Victor Porton.

To make a math formula at this site you just enclose a LaTeX formula in dollar signs: $E=mc^2$ becomes $E=mc^2$. Do not use <math>...</math> tags.

Which file formats for video lectures should we accept for uploading? (Currently we support 'pdf', 'png', 'ps', 'txt', 'doc', 'docx', 'svg', 'ppt', 'pptx'. If you want to upload another file format, contact me.) We currently don't accept video uploads due limited space at the server. (Donate!) Links to videos are however welcome.

If any institutions wants to host this site instead of me, please contact me.
