Séminaire Nicolas Bourbaki

The Séminaire Nicolas Bourbaki (Bourbaki Seminar) is a series of seminars (in fact public lectures with printed notes distributed) that has been held in Paris since 1948. It is one of the major institutions of contemporary mathematics, and a barometer of mathematical achievement, fashion, and reputation. It is named after Nicolas Bourbaki, a group of French and other mathematicians of variable membership.

The Poincaré Seminars are a series of talks on physics inspired by the Bourbaki seminars on mathematics.

The proceedings of the Séminaire have been published by four different publishers over the years. 1948/49 through 1964/65 were published as Textes des conférences / Séminaire Bourbaki by the Secrétariat Mathématique, Université Paris. In 1966, W. A. Benjamin, Inc. issued a special twelve-volume facsimile reproduction of the Séminaire Bourbaki, 1948-1965. W. A. Benjamin, Inc. continued to publish the proceedings for three more years, 1965/66 through 1967/68. Springer-Verlag published 1968/69 through 1980/81 as part of its Lecture Notes in Mathematics series. 1981/82 to date are published by the Société Mathématique de France as part of Astérisque.
