COVID-19 update 06-17-2021:

Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, IPAM’s programs have been running online. Encouraged by the improving infection rates and the newly announced State mandate, IPAM building will partially open through the summer with limited staff presence. We are looking forward to returning to a more robust in-person operations in the fall. A number of COVID related restrictions and procedures will remain in place, and we will follow all guidelines established by UCLA, LA county, the state of California, and the CDC.

The following IPAM programs have been, or may need to be, modified due to COVID-19:

  • 2021 Summer School on Mathematics of Topological Phases of Matter is taking place in-person on August 29 – September 3, 2021. The Summer School on Post-quantum and Quantum Cryptography has been postponed (date TBD). The new dates will be announced on the Summer Schools web page.
  • The Undergraduate Student Research Programs RIPS Los Angeles is taking place in-person. However, this may change depending on the trajectory of the pandemic and State and City public health regulations. RIPS Singapore has been cancelled.
  • The Graduate Student Research Programs  G-RIPS Sendai is taking place virtually. G-RIPS Berlin has been cancelled.
  • We anticipate that all fall programs will meet in-person with the workshops having a virtual component. Program participants should expect to be notified of the specific nature of each program no later than 30 days prior to the start of the program.
