Ways to Participate

Join a Research Program or Cluster

Senior researchers who would like to join one of our scheduled programs should contact the program organizers as early as possible. Alternatively, researchers may apply to become long-term visitors. Junior researchers may also apply for research fellowship in one of the programs.

Propose a Program

Proposals for research programs and clusters are solicited from the worldwide theoretical CS community and may be submitted at any time; proposals are reviewed twice a year. To propose a program, see our current call for proposals or contact our simonsassociatedirector [at] (associate director).

Join a Research Pod

Quantum Pod
Interested candidates should follow the instructions for the call for applications for postdoctoral researchers or visiting research scientists. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.

Machine Learning Pod
Visit the ML Pod page to check for current opportunities.

Attend a Workshop or Other Event

Register to participate in one of our upcoming workshops or public lectures. Everyone is welcome to attend the boot camp and workshops that are part of the program. We do not offer any funding for public registrants. Approximately 10 weeks before each boot camp/workshop, registration will open on its web page. You're welcome to go and register at that time. Registration is free.
