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.

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.

The fourth IPhT course of this academic year will start on Friday 4 May at 10:00, with the first of 6 lectures by Rémi Monasson on "Unsupervised neural networks: from theory to systems biology". For the abstract and further details, see the course's web page.

The lectures are open to all: students, postdocs and researchers, whether IPhT members or outsiders. Do not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who might be interested.
