Interactions of Low-dimensional Topology and Quantum Field Theory

This conference will bring together students and close collaborators of Peter Teichner on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday. With Teichner’s contributions to both Low-dimensional Topology and Quantum Field Theory, this will be an opportunity to share ways of thinking between experts of these two areas. The accent will be on recent results which will […]

Geometric and analytic aspects of the Quantum Hall effect

Quantum Hall effect, discovered in the 1980s, continues to this day to attract enormous interest among both physicists and mathematicians. With its nontrivial connections to modern theoretical physics, analysis, geometry, probability and hydrodynamics, the subject can be counted on to provide novel insights, problems, ideas and collaboration prospects for respective communities. The topics to be discussed at this workshop […]

19 March 2023 - 24 March 2023
Groups of dynamical origin, automata and spectra

The conference follows a long tradition of schools and workshops on Geometric Group Theory and beyond  in the Swiss Alps. The 2023 edition will be an occasion to celebrate the 70-th birthday of Slava Grigorchuk.

Non-Archimedean methods in arithmetic and geometry

Non-Archimedean geometry provide a natural setting to study degenerations in various contexts. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers coming from different fields of mathematics but related by the use of non-Archimedean geometry. They will share with each other their experience and points of view on this subject. More precisely the following […]

3 February 2023 - 12 February 2023
Integrability in Condensed Matter Physics and Quantum Field Theory

Solving a strongly interacting quantum system, even with simplified interactions, turns out to be a challenging task. It requires the application of techniques from a variety of mathematical disciplines such as algebra, representation theory, geometry and topology, etc. On the other hand, exact solutions provide unparalleled insight into interesting phenomena in quantum many-body systems and […]

29 January 2023 - 3 February 2023
Workshop on Quantization and Resurgence

The theory of resurgence was introduced by Jean Ecalle in the 1980’s, partially motivated by the study of perturbative series in quantum theory. In the last years, there has been a renewed interest in this theory.

15 January 2023 - 20 January 2023
New connections: chaos, field theory and quantum gravity
8 January 2023 - 13 January 2023

28 November 2022 - 2 December 2022

The goal of this workshop is to bring together mathematicians and scientists from various backgrounds as well as any and all who are interested in the question “what can we do about climate change“. By creating strong networks of scientists, we hope to create a synergy that will benefit both scientific advances and their applications […]

23 October 2022 - 29 October 2022
Let's talk about outreach ! & Math'émerveille

We propose a conference on outreach bringing together its different actors and its different aspects.

25 September 2022 - 30 September 2022
Workshop on Spin Glasses

Few other branches of statistical mechanics are pushing the frontiers with other sciences as the theory of spin glasses. In this workshop the focus will be on the newest trends in the mathematical theory of spin glasses and its application to high dimensional statistics and machine learning. Topics of central interest include: pure states in […]

4 September 2022 - 9 September 2022
Young Group theorists workshop: exploring new connections

This is a five day workshop with the uniting theme “Groups and group actions”. Each day focuses on a specific topic and will be planned by an experienced colleague together with early stage researchers.

28 August 2022 - 2 September 2022
Algebra, Topology and the Grothendieck-Teichmüller group

A recurring theme in algebra and topology is the study of algebraic structures associated to manifolds, with the goal of finding invariants, and understanding automorphisms. Examples include the study of the Grothendieck-Teichmüller- and related groups in algebra, string topology and its invariance properties, and configuration spaces and the Goodwillie-Weiss embedding calculus in topology. Recent progress […]

21 August 2022 - 26 August 2022
Gauged maps, Vortices and their moduli

A gauged map u is a generalization of a morphism Y → X between almost complex manifolds that takes into account a given symmetry under some group G on the target X. It is natural to consider objects that are invariant under this symmetry, assumed Hamiltonian, and a most sensible extension is to promote u […]

3 July 2022 - 8 July 2022
Large Charge in Les Diablerets

It has become clear over the last few years that working in a sector of large quantum number leads to significant simplifications in strongly coupled theories which are otherwise inaccessible to analytic methods. At large charge, it is for example possible to calculate the conformal data of CFTs with a global symmetry. The field has […]

5 June 2022 - 10 June 2022

29 May 2022 - 3 June 2022
Workshop on Network Non-Locality

Non-locality is by now a well established field, both within foundations of quantum physics and in quantum information science. However, non-locality in networks is a new burgeoning field, triggered by ”old” (Bell) nonlocality and by the prospect of future quantum network that will connect quantum processors and deliver, among others, informationally secure cryptography.

Deciphering AdS/CFT

Recently, the AdS/CFT duality for the case of AdS3/CFT2 has been understood in quite some detail. In particular, a solvable world-sheet theory has been identified that has been argued to be exactly equivalent to the dual free symmetric orbifold CFT.
