### Southern California Probability Symposium

**April 13, 2024****Organizers:**Tom Hutchcroft (Caltech), Amber Puha (CSUSM)

The Southern California Probability Symposium (SCPS) is an annual event. Probabilists from Southern California and beyond have been gathering at the SCPS since its inception. For the first time in 50 years, this event is coming to Caltech.

### Algebraic Models of Generative Linguistics

**March 9-10, 2024****Organizers:**Robert Berwick (MIT), Matilde Marcolli (Caltech)

This meeting brings together theoretical linguists, mathematicians, mathematical physicists, and computational linguists, for informal discussions on algebraic models of the Merge operation in generative linguistics, models of the syntax-semantics interface, and models of semantic spaces, along with the question of their realization in large language models. Thanks to Caltech Center for Evolutionary Science for support.

### Mini-workshop: Plumbings, Spectra, and Resurgence

**March 1-2, 2024****Lead organizer:**Josef Svoboda (Caltech)

The goal of this informal event is to bring together researchers to discuss and share ideas at the intersection of topology, algebraic geometry, and mathematical physics.

### Idea Incubator

**February 10:**Nicolai Reshetikhin (YMSC, Tsinghua University and UC Berkeley) and Anton Kapustin (Caltech)**Organizer:**Sergei Gukov (Caltech)

A series of recurring events (held on Saturdays, roughly every quarter) that can be best described as "fireside chats" or "corporate retreats," devoted to topics at the interface of geometry, representation theory, and physics.

### MAA/MESCal/AIM Assembly

**January 21**, 2pm - 5pm

This event, hosted by the SoCal-Nevada Section of the MAA, will feature brief addresses, social activities, and a fun mixer with Board and Section Members as well as MESCal members (Math Equity in Southern California).
