Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Fundamental Science Winter School

January 3–14, 2023

The Wolfram Fundamental Science Winter School offers students the opportunity to contribute to a number of active basic research projects in which Stephen Wolfram and his colleagues are involved. These projects include the Physics Project, Metamathematics Project and other new projects that apply a multi-computational paradigm to the study of technological and natural systems.

Each student will complete an original research project under a team of Wolfram mentors. Individuals with experience in computational research and other relevant scientific fields—and particularly those with an interest in real-time training in doing fast-paced, original, foundational work—are encouraged to apply. (Please note lectures and presentations will be held in US Eastern/Central time.)
