John von Neumann (Johnny) was one of the great minds of the past century whose work has continued to shape research and entire disciplines. He studied chemical engineering at ETH Zurich from 1923 to 1926. See The Unparalleled Genius of John von Neumann for an article about his life.
The John von Neumann Lectures are held in Zurich annually to remember and honor his contributions to science.
In 2023, on June 2, hundred years after John von Neumann matriculated at ETH Zurich, we will hold the John von Neumann Symposium in the core field of his contributions featuring Serge Haroche (physics), Yurii Nesterov (computing), Larry Samuelson (economics), and Benny Sudakov (mathematics).
