Simons Symposia

RFA | Application Instructions | FAQ | Policies and Procedures | Upcoming & Past Symposia

The Simons Symposia series brings together mathematicians, theoretical physicists, and theoretical computer scientists to interact and collaborate in symposium series that focus on one topic or tightly connected group of topics, leaving plenty of time for collaboration and open-ended discussion.

The next symposia will begin in late April, 2017. Participation is by invitation only. The Simons Foundation will issue invitations upon the recommendation of the organizers. The foundation will also make travel arrangements for all symposium participants and will provide support at the conference site. All expenses, including travel, lodging, and meals, will be paid by the foundation.
