Quantum fields, scattering and spacetime horizons:
mathematical challenges

22-25 May 2018, Les Houches



The mathematical developments in Quantum Field Theory on curved spacetimes provide an exceptional testing ground for concepts at the interface of classical and quantum physics. The aim of this meeting is to bring together expert mathematicians and theoretical physicists with the goal of addressing challenging problems in the description of phenomena where asymptotic or global aspects play a crucial role, and of exploring the various connections with recent advances in scattering theory, conformal methods and microlocal analysis.

Participation of PhD students and young researchers is strongly encouraged.


Registration is now closed; please contact the organisers directly for individual requests. The registration fee of 340 EUR (paid upon arrival) covers the accommodation as well as all the meals.
