Description
Slmath 40th anniversary design
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. Funding is extremely limited. Questions? Contact coord@msri.org.  * Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required for in-person attendees. Masks are strongly encouraged. Live broadcasts of events will take place via Zoom.   How to Register for SLMath Workshops You must be logged into msri.org to register for workshops. You may create a free msri.org account here if you do not have one already.  On the right side menu, there is an orange button with "Click here to Register online". Follow this link and proceed with the registration. ABOUT ORCID ID: In order to register for most workshops, MSRI/SLMath needs to collect your ORCID ID as required by the National Science Foundation, the primary funder of MSRI/SLMath workshops. ORCID is an independent non-profit organization that provides a persistent identifier – an ORCID ID – that distinguishes you from other researchers and a mechanism for linking your research outputs and activities to your ID. ORCID is integrated into many systems used by publishers, funders, institutions, and other research-related services. Learn more and create an ORCID ID account at orcid.org. For questions regarding registration for non-researchers, please contact Ms. Tracy Huang, thuang@msri.org, for assistance. We welcome friends of MSRI / SLMath to this event for whom our standard workshop registration system is not applicable.
