The Simons Collaboration on Wave Turbulence has brought together scientists and mathematicians working in disparate areas, but with a common goal of understanding, verifying, and constructing a rigorous theory of wave turbulence. They have been meeting, discussing, and collaborating to achieve their goals. Scientists and mathematicians working within this collaboration have made substantial progress during the past four years. They have conducted experiments and have reported the first observation of weak inertial wave turbulence. In other experiments they have observed weak turbulence of internal waves.
Mathematically they have provided a rigorous proof of the validity of the wave kinetic equation, which is a central component of the theory. They have also analytically obtained solutions of these kinetic equations.
The Simons Collaboration on Wave Turbulence Annual Meeting intends to provide the latest on our collaborative research, as well as highlighting important external research from related fields, with the scope of further developing the collaborative research approach started by the PIs of the grant.

Travel & Hotel
Air and Train
For individuals in Groups A and B the foundation will arrange and pay for round-trip travel from their home city to the conference.
All travel and hotel arrangements must be booked through the Simons Foundation’s preferred travel agency. Travel arrangements not booked through the preferred agency must be pre-approved by the Simons Foundation and a reimbursement quote must be obtained through the foundation’s travel agency. Travel specifications can be provided by clicking the registration link above.
Personal car trips over 250 miles each way require prior approval from the Simons Foundation via email.
The James NoMad Hotel offers valet parking. Please note there are no in-and-out privileges when using the hotel’s garage, therefore it is encouraged that participants walk or take public transportation to the Simons Foundation.
Participants in Groups A & B who require accommodations are hosted by the foundation for a maximum of three nights at The James NoMad Hotel. Any additional nights are at the attendee’s own expense. To arrange accommodations, please register at the link above.
The James NoMad Hotel

Attendance & Reimbursement Policies
In-person participants and speakers are expected to attend all meeting days. Partial participation is permitted so long as the individual fully attends the first day, which is typically Thursday for two-day meetings. Participants receiving hotel and travel support wishing to arrive on meeting days which conclude at 2:00 PM will be asked to attend remotely.
Individuals accessing Simons Foundation and Flatiron Institute buildings must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Entry & Building Access
Upon arrival, guests will be required to show their photo ID to enter the Simons Foundation and Flatiron Institute buildings. After checking-in at the meeting reception desk, guests will be able to show their meeting name badge to re-enter the building. If you forget your name badge, you will need to provide your photo ID.
The Simons Foundation and Flatiron Institute buildings are not considered “open campuses” and meeting participants will only have access to the spaces in which the meeting will take place. All other areas are off limits without prior approval.
If you require a private space to conduct a phone call or remote meeting, please contact your meeting manager at least 48-hours ahead of time so that they may book a space for you within the foundation’s room reservation system.
Meeting participants are required to give 24 hour advance notice of any guests meeting them at the Simons Foundation either before or after the meeting. Outside guests are discouraged from joining meeting activities, including meals.
Ad hoc meeting participants who did not receive a meeting invitation directly from the Simons Foundation are discouraged.
Children under the age of 18 are not permitted to attend meetings at the Simons Foundation. Furthermore, the Simons Foundation does not provide childcare facilities or support of any kind. Special accommodations will be made for nursing parents.
Individuals in Groups A & B will be reimbursed for meals and local expenses including ground transportation. Expenses should be submitted through the foundation’s online expense reimbursement platform after the meeting’s conclusion.
Expenses accrued as a result of meetings not directly related to the Simons Foundation-hosted meeting (a satellite collaboration meeting held at another institution, for example) will not be reimbursed by the Simons Foundation and should be paid by other sources.
Below are key reimbursement takeaways; a full policy will be provided with the final logistics email circulated approximately 2 weeks prior to the meeting’s start.
The daily meal limit is $125 and itemized receipts are required for expenses over $24 USD. The foundation DOES NOT provide a meal per diem and only reimburses actual meal expenses.
- Meals taken on travel days are reimbursable.
- Meals taken outside those provided by the foundation (breakfast, lunch, breaks and/or dinner) are not reimbursable.
- If a meal was not provided on a meeting day, dinner for example, that expense is reimbursable.
- Meals taken on days not associated with Simons Foundation-coordinated events are not reimbursable.
- Minibar expenses are not reimbursable
- Meal expenses for a non-foundation guest are not reimbursable.
- Group meals consisting of fellow meeting participants paid by a single person will be reimbursed up to $65 per person per meal and the amount will count towards each individual’s $125 daily meal limit.
Expenses for ground transportation will be reimbursed for travel days (i.e. traveling to/from the airport) as well as local transportation. While in NYC, individuals are encouraged to use public transportation and not use taxi, Uber or Lyft services.
