Virtual Claude Itzykson Conference, June 2-4, 2021

 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.

Online Conference: The dual mysteries of gauge theories and gravity, Oct 19-23, 2020

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.

Zoom Conference on Black Hole Microstructure, June 8 – 12, 2020

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
