The Maynooth University Hamilton Institute was founded in 2001 with support from Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), and is the University's flagship centre for interdisciplinary mathematics, communications and computational research. Its aim is to bring together excellent researchers from both Maynooth and external partners, and be recognised as an international centre of excellence for research in domains related to artificial intelligence, communications, networks and computation.

This is an initial call for affiliate membership to academic staff members of Maynooth University. The sole criterion at this point is a research interest in one or more of the Hamilton areas of research.  ​Additional membership criteria may be added over time.
