About Kyoto Prize Symposium

KPS features lectures by the latest Kyoto Prize laureates and esteemed scholars in the laureates’ fields. It aims to provide an opportunity for an international audience to learn about the achievements of the laureates and to discuss their accomplishments and contribution to society. The symposium has been held since 2002, thanks to the dedicated and generous support of the Kyoto Prize Symposium Organization, co-hosting universities (University of California San Diego and Point Loma Nazarene University), and local citizens in San Diego.
