For a given topic, you can suggest, zero, one, or several possible lecturers. Suggested lecturers may be yourselves, colleagues from IPhT, or people from outside.

Dear all,

this is a reminder that the IPhT course by Nick Warner (USC and IPhT) will start next Friday, May 3rd at 10am.

More info about schedule and program, including the pdf file of the first lecture, can be found here:


Please notice that RERB on May 3rd will operate through substitive buses between Bourg La Reine and Massy Palaiseau,

which could substantially impact commuting time from Paris to Saclay (see link below)

Alternative itinerary includes taking RERC from Paris to Massy Palaiseau, then the usual bus to Orme des Merisiers.

IPhT courses exist in their present form since 1996. Since 2012, they have been organized by Riccardo Guida and Sylvain Ribault. Notable evolutions of the last few years include:

  • A dedicated website.
  • Filming courses.
  • Yearly Doodle surveys for testing the popularity of course proposals.
  • Inviting speakers to have lunch at the cafeteria with listeners after each lecture.

The organizing team has recently changed and is now composed of Riccardo Guida and Marco Schiró, who volunteered to join.

The second lecture by Rémi Monasson on Neural networks will not take place on Tuesday 15 May as originally planned. The next lecture will be on Friday 18 May, the original date for the third lecture. The missed lecture might be replaced at a later date.

Dear all,

We are still looking for ideas for next year's IPhT courses. There is still one week left (until May 2nd) for sending your ideas, or for making your ideas more precise: proposing a topic if you already suggested a speaker, and vice versa.


Riccardo Guida and Sylvain Ribault
