Bringing Together the World's Leading Researchers and Scholars in Theoretical Computer Science


This past week, we celebrated a decade of innovation and discovery at the Simons Institute at our 10th Anniversary Symposium. It was a tremendous delight for me to see so many friends whose lives and research have been enhanced by the Institute. The symposium showcased topics in which researchers at the Institute and beyond have made enormous strides in recent years. The talks are viewable now on SimonsTV.
