Established in 1989, the International Society for the Interdisciplinary Study of Symmetry, also known as the International Symmetry Society exists as a friendly framework for interdisciplinary discovery. Members come from the sciences and mathematics, the fine arts, and such disciplines as languages, philosophy, and computer science.
The Society is not a typical art/math group, but instead is committed to exploration grounded in both formal and intuitive insights inspired by symmetry.
It is known for its openness, its curious nature, and deep scholarship. It is also aggressively international, drawing members from all over the world and holding meetings in a similarly wide range of locations.
On this site are administrative reports, scholarly articles and member pages.
