Autism: Emerging Concepts

Autism: Emerging Concepts

Throughout the academic year, the Simons Foundation will host the Autism: Emerging Concepts lecture series in an effort to bring together scientists and scholars who practice or are interested in autism research. Lectures will cover a broad range of topics essential to our current understanding of autism. Lectures are open to the public and will be held at the Gerald D. Fischbach Auditorium at the Simons Foundation headquarters in New York City. Each lecture will be followed by a reception, allowing speakers and attendees to discuss and mingle.

Biotech Symposia

Biotech Symposia

Throughout the academic year, the Biotech Symposia provide a venue for discussing the latest technical approaches in life sciences, as well as new methods and algorithms in life sciences, genomics and data science, such as resting-state functional MRI. Lectures are open to the public and are held at the Gerald D. Fischbach Auditorium at the Simons Foundation in New York City. Each lecture will be followed by a reception, allowing speakers and attendees to discuss and mingle. Please visit our lecture pages, below, to learn more and register.

Celebrating the Mathematics of Pierre Deligne

Celebrating the Mathematics of Pierre Deligne

The Simons Foundation division for Mathematics and the Physical Sciences is pleased to host Celebrating the Mathematics of Pierre Deligne, a day to share and discuss Pierre Deligne’s contributions to the field of mathematics.

Frontiers of Data Science

Frontiers of Data Science

The Frontiers of Data Science lecture series provides a venue to present and discuss new algorithms and techniques aimed at organizing and exploring the vast amounts of information that are becoming available in the natural and physical sciences. Lectures are open to the public and will be held at the Gerald D. Fischbach Auditorium at the Simons Foundation headquarters in New York City. Each lecture will be followed by a reception, allowing speakers and attendees to discuss and mingle.

MPE2013 Simons Public Lecture Series

MPE2013 Simons Public Lecture Series

The Simons Foundation is pleased to support the Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 (MPE2013) Simons Public Lecture Series as a part of Mathematical Sciences Research Institute’s MPE2013 project. These lectures showcase the relevance of mathematics in meeting the global challenges facing our planet today.

Origins of Life

Origins of Life

Throughout the academic year, Simons Foundation Lectures hosts the Origins of Life lecture series, bringing together chemists, geophysicists, astronomers and others to explore one of the great unanswered questions of our time. Lectures are open to the public and are held at the Gerald D. Fischbach Auditorium at the Simons Foundation in New York City. Each lecture is preceded with a tea and followed by a reception, allowing speakers and attendees to discuss and mingle. Please visit our lecture pages to learn more and to register.

The Discovery and Study of a Higgs Boson at the Large Hadron Collider

The Discovery and Study of a Higgs Boson at the Large Hadron Collider

The Simons Foundation is pleased to host The Discovery and Study of a Higgs Boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a lecture to explore the LHC physics program, the discovery of a Higgs boson and expectations for future findings.

The Science of Climate

The Science of Climate

The Science of Climate series was inspired by the Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013/Simons Public Lecture Series. These lectures are targeted to the graduate level and above scientific community, and explores the relationship between mathematics and climate issues.

Theory and Biology

Theory and Biology

These lectures explore the role that theory plays in the life sciences. They are targeted to scientists at the graduate level and above and are intended to be of interest both to life scientists who wish to hear more about theory and to mathematically and theoretically inclined scientists interested in connections to biology.

Where is Fundamental Physics Heading?

Where is Fundamental Physics Heading?

In recent decades, physicists and astronomers have discovered two beautiful standard models, one for the quantum world of extremely short distances and one for the universe as a whole. Both models have had spectacular success, but there are also strong arguments for new physics beyond these models.
