Presentation of IPhT : The Institute of Theoretical Physics (IPhT) is an Institute of the Direction of Fundamental Research (DRF) of the Commissariat for Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies (CEA).
"Les Houches" International School of Physics (July 29- August 23)  


Bertrand Eynard, Paolo Gregori, Dimitrios Mitsios and Soufiane Oukassi from the IPhT are among the organisers of the August 2024 session (29 July - 23 August) of the prestigious "Les Houches" International School of Physics.

The Les Houches Quantum Geometry School (Mathematical methods for gravity, gauge theories and non-perturbative physics) will bring together leading experts in theoretical physics. It will offer to 50 students from all over the world introductory courses covering topics such as quantum gravity, gauge theories and non-perturbative physics. These courses will focus on the methods of mathematical physics, in particular the theory of random matrices, topological recurrence, resurgence and moduli space.

This event is part of the ERC-SyG Project ReNewQuantum.

28emes rencontres Itzykson: Analytic results in Conformal Field Theory from September 10 to 12 2024 at IPhT-Saclay  


Since the 1980s, many exact results have been discovered in 2d CFT, from critical exponents to correlation functions to complete solutions of certain models. In d>2, there is a wealth of numerical results as well as promising analytic approaches, but comparably fewer exact answers.

The aim of this conference is to review the most promising analytic methods and results in CFT in any dimension. In particular we will try to understand to which extent the 2d methods can be extended to d>2, and what is missing to exactly solve d>2 CFTs.
