Slmath 40yrs transparent
In 2022-23, SLMath (formerly MSRI) celebrates 40 years of serving the mathematical sciences community through our topic-focused programs and workshops, and the general public via our national and global outreach initiatives. Director Tatiana Toro and Deputy Director Hélène Barcelo invite the community to join us for a symposium to reflect upon these four decades of extraordinary activity.  This celebration will feature special guest speakers, panel discussions and an evening reception. This event is free and open to the public. Questions? Contact coord@msri.org.   All programs take place in U.S. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT, UTC - 7) beginning at 9:00 AM. (What time is that for me?) * Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required for in-person attendees. Masks are strongly encouraged. Live broadcasts of events will take place via Zoom.
