Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival


The Julia Robinson Mathematics Festivals are a program of in-person math events supplemented by deep contest problems you can work on in small teams at your school.

Julia Robinson was a mathematics professor at UC Berkeley for many years. She is famous for her solution of Hilbert’s tenth problem. The Julia Robinson Mathematics Festivals were founded by MSRI in collaboration with Nancy Blachman, David desJardins and Josua Zucker to honor her legacy and encourage more students to pursue mathematics. The festivals began in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2007 and have expanded with festivals across the country. The Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival is now hosted by the American Institute of Mathematics. Please follow this link to visit the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival Website.
