Date/Time Event
14 January 2024 - 19 January 2024
Quantum Topology Biennial (QTB): focus on representation theory

This is the first event in the Quantum Topology Biennial series (QTB), with a particular focus on the interplay between quantum topology and representation theory. The workshop will study interactions between the two fields, including pDG stuctures, non-semisimple TQFTs, modified traces, and the relation between Hilbert schemes of points and triply graded homology.

21 January 2024 - 26 January 2024
Conformal field theory 3 ways: integrable, probabilistic, and supersymmetric

Two dimensional conformal field theories (CFTs) are ubiquitous in mathematical physics and as such provide surprising connections between different areas of research. The past decade has seen a surge of powerful techniques using supersymmetry, integrability, and more recently, random geometry/probability to study different aspects of CFTs. For instance, the task of explicitly computing conformal blocks […]

28 January 2024 - 2 February 2024
Workshop on the Enumerative geometry of the Hilbert scheme of points

The Hilbert scheme of n points on a manifold parametrizes length-n subschemes of M. On the one hand, this is a classifying space of finite codimension ideals in polynomial rings, on the other hand, being one of the most natural moduli spaces, it plays a major role in many classical problems in enumerative geometry, complex […]

4 February 2024 - 9 February 2024
Phase mixing, kinetic theory and fluid mechanics

The connections between kinetic theory and fluid mechanics are deeply rooted in the multitude of phenomena that these theories describe. From the classic examples of gas and plasmas dynamics to the recent applications in collective behavior, the multiscale nature of these problems is undoubtedly a fundamental common feature. Kinetic equations are paramount in modeling large […]

11 February 2024 - 16 February 2024
Quantum metrology in many-body open systems

Quantum physics provides unprecedented possibilities for metrology. In this workshop we aim at exploring new opportunities and challenges arising from the presence of interactions and dissipation in quantum sensors. Many-body interactions lead to non-trivial many-body states and dynamics, which open a whole range of possibilities for metrology. On the one hand, it offers new resources […]

18 February 2024 - 23 February 2024
Workshop in Statistical Mechanics 2024

This is a recurring workshop, held in Les Diablerets every February for the last 15 years. Workshop will cover current developments in mathematical physics. The emphasis will be on hot topics in statistical mechanics and neighboring areas, to be chosen three motnths before the workshop. There will be 2-3 minicourses, a few invited talks by […]

25 February 2024 - 1 March 2024
Quantum information

The concept of information permeates both our everyday life as well as our understanding of the universe. With quantum theory and not classical theory at the base, our concept of information needs a fundamental revision. This workshop will take a fresh look at this maturing subject bringing together thinkers of all levels of seniority. Focus […]

12 May 2024 - 17 May 2024
Advanced Lectures in Physics in Switzerland

Alps I: Quantum information, from gravity to computers and back The Alps (Advanced Lectures in Physics in Switzerland) is a series of junior schools in theoretical physics taking place in the Swiss Mountains. Its principal aim is to lay the foundation for fruitful collaborations between young researchers with a variety of backgrounds. It is achieved […]

2 June 2024 - 7 June 2024
Gravitational physics and its mathematical analysis

In recent years, the field of (mathematical) general relativity has expanded in exciting ways. This workshop will cover the latest developments in three key areas: the study of the stability and scattering properties of various solutions to the Einstein equations (including black holes spacetimes); the dynamical formation of singularities and instability phenomena associated to extremal […]

30 June 2024 - 5 July 2024
Birational geometry and dynamics

The workshop aims to explore various connections between birational geometry and complex dynamics, focusing on recent achievements in the field. The projective space Pn is one of the most fundamental objects in geometry. Therefore, it is important to understand the structure of its group of birational transformations Bir(Pn), called the Cremona group. In the past […]

18 August 2024 - 23 August 2024
Quantum Key Distribution Summer School

While classical cryptographic schemes always have to fear the risk of being broken, in particular with the possibility that quantum computers are built, quantum cryptography promises unconditional security solely based on the laws of physics. This field of research is currently in an exciting phase in which theoretical concepts and ideas are not only experiencing […]

25 August 2024 - 30 August 2024
Topologically recursive behaviors

This event is the conclusive week of an overarching Summer program inclusive of a 4 weeks School and Conference at Les Houches (July 29 – August 25). The Summer program features research talks and PhD courses by leading experts in quantisation, string theory, resurgence, topological recursion, enumerative geometry and integrable systems, Chern-Simons theory and stability […]

31 August 2024 - 4 September 2024
Matrix x IMAGINARY

What is the future of mathematics communication? What does successful knowledge transfer in mathematics look like? What are its modern tools, concepts, and strategies? How can the public be involved in a meaningful way? This conference addresses these topics inviting actors from mathematics museums, maths outreach organizations and researchers involved in communicating mathematics. This conference […]

15 September 2024 - 20 September 2024
Quantization in Representation Theory, Derived Algebraic Geometry, and Gauge Theory

Quantization is the mathematical tool to understand the transition between classical and quantum mechanics. Intuitively, classical mechanics is the limit of quantum mechanics as the quantum parameter tends to zero and, conversely, quantization is “an algorithm by which a quantum system corresponds to a classical dynamical one” (F.A. Berezin).   The ultimate goal of this […]

22 September 2024 - 27 September 2024
12th International Conference on the Exact Renormalization Group 2024 (ERG2024)

The ERG conferences, held every second year, are intended to bring together researchers from different branches of theoretical physics who apply modern functional renormalization group (fRG) methods to describe and understand a variety of physical phenomena. For example, applications include quantum many-body systems, statistical mechanics, particle physics, nuclear physics and quantum theories of gravity. The […]
