Bringing Together the World's Leading Researchers and Scholars in Theoretical Computer Science

Join the Simons Institute Annual Fund and be a part of future discovery!


The reams of data being collected on human activity every minute of every day — from websites and sensors, from hospitals and government agencies — beg to be analyzed and explained. Was the rise in coronavirus infection rates visible in one data set caused by the falling temperatures in another data set, or a result of the mobility patterns apparent in a separate data collection, or was it some other less visible change in social patterns, or perhaps even just random chance, or actually some combination of all these factors?

COVID-19 Update

The Simons Institute resumed limited in-person events on June 28, 2021. Please verify the status of workshops, public lectures, and internal program events as we adapt to the changing health policies. We hope you can join us.


You should not come to campus if you have had any new and unusual symptoms of COVID-19 (not attributed to a previously known medical condition) in the last 24 hours. When on campus, masks are strongly recommended.
