Presentation of IPhT : The Institute of Theoretical Physics (IPhT) is an Institute of the Direction of Fundamental Research (DRF) of the Commissariat for Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies (CEA).
Conference et Workshop : Black-Hole Microstructure V  
Conference: June 5 - 9 Informal workshop: June 12-16


The microscopic description of black holes has been a challenge for more that forty years.  There are now quite a number of promising approaches to solving this problem and the primary goal of this conference and workshop is to bring together experts in these areas to identify synergies, engage in constructive criticism and resolve apparent conflicts.  A significant focus will be the dynamics of black-hole microstructure: how infalling matter is scrambled and how information is recovered.

The conference will have four or five talks a day.    The talks will all be "in-person" at the IPhT, CEA-Saclay and they will be broadcast via Zoom.

Matt Von Hippel is to join IPhT on September 1.  


Matt von Hippel went to Stony Brook University for his doctoral studies after obtaining an undergraduate degree at Tufts.  He obtained his PhD in 2014, on N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory.  His advisor was Michael Douglas.  During his PhD he developed a method to bootstrap perturbative scattering amplitudes in quantum field theories.  He then spent three years as a postdoc at the Perimeter Institute, where he continued working on bootstrapping higher-loop amplitudes in the N=4 theory. 

In 2017, he moved to the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, first as a postdoc and later as an Assistant Professor.  Matt is interested in the broad variety of integral functions that appear in scattering amplitudes.  He seeks to understand them using novel integration methods.  He has already discovered surprising iterative structures in them. His current interests lie in developing new approaches to calculations based on the structure of these functions, specifically in particle physics and also in perturbation theory more broadly.

Welcome to Matt!

Antoine Bourget joins the IPhT as a permanent researcher!  


We are pleased to announce that Antoine Bourget will join the IPhT permanent researchers team, as of September 1, 2023.

After studies at Ecole Polytechnique and Ecole des Mines, Antoine Bourget did a Ph.D. at LPTENS, followed by post-doctoral studies at the University of Oviedo, Imperial College London, and IPhT (joint with LPENS).

Antoine is an expert of strong coupling phenomena in quantum field theory, which encapsulate the vast field of problems outside the reach of perturbation theory, from classical field configurations (monopoles, instantons) to quantum effects (quark confinement, low-energy structure of the proton). Using algebra and geometry, he has been striding the bridge provided by string theory and supersymmetric field theory to address the far-reaching problem of the classification of conformal field theories and the study of the renormalization group flows connecting them.

Welcome among us Antoine!
