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.
