Park City Mathematics Institute

PCMI goes VIRTUAL in 2021!

The Park City Mathematics Institute will be running a series of online workshops in July 2021.

The Graduate Summer School will consist of three separate one-week programs:

  • Motivic Homotopy Theory - July 12-16
  • Illustrating Mathematics - July 19-23  
  • Number Theory Informed by Computation - July 26-30

Each of these is designed to start out at an introductory level and be broadly accessible.

The Undergraduate Summer School, July 11-31, will consist of a three-week program led by Dustin Clausen (University of Copenhagen) and Akhil Mathew (University of Chicago) on Quadratic forms, Milnor K-theory and arithmetic.

The Undergraduate Faculty Program, August 2-6, will be a one-week program led by Kyle Ormsby (Reed College) on Motivic Degree and Milnor Numbers. 

Workshop on Rehumanizing Mathematics, led by Rochelle Gutierrez, July 12-23

The Teacher Leadership Program will consist of three separate one-week programs:

  • Fibonacci Recurrences – July 12-16
  • Geometry & Complex Numbers – July 19-23
  • Hands-on Combinatorics – July 26-30

Each of these programs at PCMI will include some activities in common with the parallel programs held that same week.

Apply now!  Applications are open until April 5, 2021.  Late applications will be considered at the discretion of the organizers of each program.

PCMI welcomes all applications and especially encourages applications from people who self-identify as members of minoritized groups.

This conference supports the Welcoming Environment Statement of the Association for Women in Mathematics.

The IAS/Park City Mathematics Program (PCMI) is an outreach program of the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS).  Held in Park City, Utah, PCMI is an intensive three-week residential conference that includes several parallel sets of activities aimed at different groups of participants across the entire mathematics community. These activities include:

  • program for mathematics researchers
  • short courses for graduate students
  • lecture series for undergraduate students
  • undergraduate faculty program
  • faculty workshop on rehumanizing mathematics
  • professional development and leadership program for teachers of grades 3-12

At the annual Summer Session, all of PCMI's programs meet simultaneously, pursuing individual courses of study designed to enrich participants in mathematical topics appropriate for their level, and participating in cross-program activities based on the principle that each group has something important to teach and to learn from the others. The rich mathematical experience combined with interaction among groups with different backgrounds and professional needs increases each participant's appreciation of the mathematical community as a whole and results in an increased understanding and awareness of the issues confronting mathematics and mathematics education today.
