Scattering amplitudes provide a time-honored probe of the mathematical and physical content of quantum field theory. Recent years have seen dramatic developments in this area. Fundamental principles of causality and unitarity lead to new consistency conditions, while novel considerations have enabled perturbative calculations to be carried out to loop orders that were previously intractable. Through this work new mathematical structures have begun to emerge, such as the central role played by positive geometry. This symposium will review these recent developments and point ways toward future advances.
