The 25th edition of the Claude Itzykson Conference will take place online on June 2-4, 2021. The topic of this year edition will be “Many-Body Chaos, Scrambling and Thermalization in Interacting Quantum Systems“. Recent years have seen a growth of interest around these subjects, with contributions coming from condensed matter and statistical physics,high-energy theory and mathematical physics. The aim of this workshop is to review the latest theoretical developments and foster an exchange of ideas between these different communities. If you wish to attend, please register before May 24th.
The kick-off meeting of IRN:QFS, initially due to take place in Tours on May 18-20, 2020, will finally take place virtually on June 9-11, 2021, mornings only. The scientific program will consist of one review talk each morning, followed by short presentations by postdocs from the french community. Attendance is open to all members of institutions participating in the network. Please register to receive the connection details.
This Solvay workshop will take place online. Follow this link for schedule and registration.
This symposium is a regular event to share some of exciting recent developments in String Theory and Quantum Field Theory with many active researchers from the globe. Due to the current circumstance, the meeting will be held via Zoom. Please register to obtain connection details.
This informal workshop hosted by IST, Lisbon will cover recent progress in microstate counting of supersymmetric black holes, asymptotic symmetries, integrability and thermalization. See this link for details.
The conference in honor Prof David Gross will be held online from IIT Madras. The talks will encompass the following broad themes: Matrices and quantum spacetime, Quantum black holes, Fundamental aspects of holography with focus on the entanglement wedge, Applied holography, Swampland debates, and Nonperturbative methods in QFT including low dimensional systems and scattering amplitudes. A panel discussion on fundamental physics and society will take place on Oct 24. Please register at this link before Sep 20 in order to participate in the Zoom sessions.

The primary goal of this conference is to bring together experts in the diverse approaches to the study of black-hole microstates, to identify synergies, engage in constructive criticism and resolve apparent conflicts. A significant focus will be the dynamics of black-hole microstructure. The conference will involve three talks a day and a panel discussion on the first four days of the conference. See the timetable. All events will be held via Zoom, the lectures and panels will be recorded and live-streamed to Youtube, instructions will be posted on the Conference webpage.
The organizers: Iosif Bena and Nick Warner, CEA Saclay
Due to the coronavirus situation, the next Eurostrings meeting, initially planned for August 24-28, 2020 in Oxford, is postponed to 2021, same location.
IRN:QFS, the International Research Network on Quantum Fields and Strings, has been approved by CNRS on January 24, 2020. It gathers about 200 scientists from 80 research institutes throughout the world.
Negociations are under way with a handful of official foreign partners to establish Memoranda of Understanding. Meanwhile, the IRN:QFS network is up and ready for fruitful exchange of information and knowledge !
