Park City Mathematics Institute

Note January 16, 2023:  Application deadlines extended for the Teacher Leadership Program, Research Program, Undergraduate Faculty Program to January 31 and to February 3 for the Workshop on Rehumanizing Mathematics. 

PCMI will be back in Park City in 2023! 

The Park City Mathematics Institute, a three-week residential summer session, will be held from July 16 – August 5, 2023 in Park City, Utah.  Please see below for vaccination requirements. We will continue to evaluate and provide updates on this webpage regarding any further covid restrictions.

We look forward to receiving your applications, and to seeing many of you this next summer!

PCMI will require organizers, lecturers, staff, participants, and all visitors to provide proof of having completed a course of COVID-19 vaccinations before gaining on-site access to lodging, offices, libraries, seminars, meetings, meals and other resources in Park City. Additional information will be posted in the coming months.

All participants coming to IAS/PCMI in 2023 must provide proof of vaccination for Covid-19 in order to attend this summers program. Unvaccinated individuals or those who do not provide proof will not be permitted to participate in PCMI. No exceptions or exemptions will be granted. Click here for details.

PCMI 2023 Research Topic: Quantum Computation, organized by David Gosset (University of Waterloo), Aram Harrow (MIT), Stacey Jeffery (CWI and QuSoft), Ryan O'Donnell (Carnegie Mellon University), and Thomas Vidick (Caltech).

Course descriptions and additional information on the Graduate Summer School program can be found here.

Information on the Research Program can be found here.

The Undergraduate Summer School, will consist of a three-week program led by Jamie Pommersheim (Reed College) on Introduction to Quantum Computation.

The Undergraduate Faculty Program will be a three-week program led by Eric Rowell (Texas A&M Univeristy) and Shawn Cui (Purdue University). 

The Workshop on Rehumanizing Mathematics, led by Rochelle Gutierrez, will be held July 16-29.

The Teacher Leadership Program will also be a three-week program, organized by Peg Cagle (Los Angeles Unified School District).

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 7-12

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.
