2018 brings with it the centenary of a major milestone in mathematical physics: the publication of Amalie ("Emmy") Noether's theorems relating symmetry and physical quantities, which continue to be a font of inspiration for "symmetry arguments" in physics, and for the interpretation of symmetry within philosophy.

In order to celebrate Noether's legacy, the University of Notre Dame and the LSE Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Sciences are co-organizing a conference that will bring together leading mathematicians, physicists, and philosophers of physics in order to discuss the enduring impact of Noether's work.
