Lighting new Lampposts for Dark Matter and Beyond the Standard Model: February 24 – April 8, 2020

Organized by: Ranny Budnik, Rouven Essig, and Maxim Pospelov. Continuing progress in collider physics and dark matter searches in the past few decades have put significant pressure on several favorable theoretical models for Dark Matter and other beyond the Standard Model physics. However, the mystery of dark matter, and its true identity in relation to […]

Supersymmetric Black Holes, Holography and Microstate Counting: April 20-May 1, 2020

Organized by: Cyril Closset (Oxford U.), Leopoldo Pando Zayas (Michigan U.), Luigi Tizzano (SCGP, Stony Brook), Chiara Toldo (Ecole Polytechnique and CEA Saclay), Alberto Zaffaroni (Milano Bicocca U.) This two-week program will be dedicated to the study of supersymmetric black holes in holography from both sides of the AdS/CFT correspondence. Holography provides a powerful framework […]

Many faces of renormalization: June 1-5, 2020

Organized by: Mikhail Lyubich and Konstantin Khanin The goal of this Workshop is to explore connections between variousaspects of Renormalization in Dynamics (unimodal and circle, holomorphic and cocyclic, Henon, KAM, and stochastic renormalizations) and Physics (QFT and statistical mechanics, fluid dynamics, and KPZ), which could help to reveal a unifying theme for all these phenomena. […]

Quantum Hall Effect: Status Report: May 11 – 15, 2020

Organized by: A. Gromov, G. Csáthy, F.D.M. Haldane, S. Simon, D. Son. Two-dimensional electron system (2DES) in a strong magnetic field exhibits extraordinary rich variety of phenomena that arise from the strong interactions between the electrons. Among these phenomena, the most notorious one is the fractional quantum Hall (FQH) effect, which is the major playground […]

Neural Networks and the Data Science Revolution: from Theoretical Physics to Neuroscience, and Back: January 6-31, 2020

Organized by: Michael R. Douglas, Sergei Gukov, Jim Halverson, Sven Krippendorf, Fabian Ruehle, Giancarlo La Camera, Luca Mazzucato, Jin Wang The availability of very large datasets and the striking progress in artificial intelligence are revolutionizing the way scientists approach their disciplines. The deployment of state-of-the-art techniques in machine learning and statistical inference to study large […]

Renormalization and universality in Conformal Geometry, Dynamics, Random Processes, and Field Theory: February 3 – June 5, 2020

Organizers: Kostya Khanin and Misha Lyubich The goal of the program is to bring together mathematicians and physicists working on various aspects of renormalization in dynamical systems. The idea of Renormalization group emerged in Quantum Field Theory. Later, in the 1960s, it became a major tool in Statistical Mechanics in analysis of phase transitions and […]

Analysis, Dynamics, Geometry and Probability: March 2-6, 2020

Organized by: Raanan Schul, Hrant Hakobyan, Kirill Lazebnik Scientific committee: Peter Jones, Misha Lyubich, Dennis Sullivan The workshop will bring together experts in Analysis, Dynamics, Geometry and Probability. These fields have had fruitful interaction in the past and present. One example is the connection between Brownian motion, harmonic measure, analysis of singular integrals, and geometric […]

Novel Vistas on Vortices: November 11-15, 2019

Organized by: Mathew Bullimore (Durham, UK), Nuno M. Romão (Augsburg, Germany), Sushmita Venugopalan (IMSc Chennai, India) Moduli spaces of symplectic vortices, well known to particle and condensed-matter physicists since the 1970s, have experienced a substantial revival over the last twenty years. This has been motivated, on one hand, by the extension of the vortex equations […]
