The Bridges Organization

The Bridges Organization oversees the annual Bridges conference on mathematical connections in art, music, architecture, education, and culture. Since 1998, Bridges has traveled to North America, Europe, and Asia, and has attracted participants from over thirty countries. The conference features invited speakers, full and short paper presentations, educational workshops, a juried art exhibition, and arts performance events.

On this site, you will find information about the organization, our upcoming conferences, archives of information from previous years, and many other resources of interest to the Bridges community.

Reza Sarhangi

In 2016, we lost the founder and president of the Bridges Organization, Reza Sarhangi. Reza devoted his life to building the conference and its community. We invite you to read more about the loss of this inspiring person, and to consider donating to two memorial funds that have been launched in his name.
