The Initiative for the Theoretical Sciences provides a home for theoretical research in the sciences and cuts across a wide range of subjects in its search to find a mathematical description of the world around us.

The initiative aims to share the excitement of science with the general public, as well as to provoke high level discussion and new collaboration within the theoretical sciences community. To meet this aim, ITS hosts several programs, for both the public and those associated with ITS, which include workshops, seminars, symposia, and conferences.

Events are held at the Graduate Center, CUNY, 365 Fifth Avenue, between 34th and 35th Streets, in Manhattan. We are located within convenient walking distance of several subway lines and buses, as well as Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal.
