The Institut de Physique Théorique (IPhT) is a laboratory of fundamental research, located in Saclay, about 20 km south-west of Paris.

The research performed at the IPhT aims at better understanding the laws which govern our universe and its organisation. It encompasses most of the great subjects of modern theoretical physics:

The IPhT comprises about fifty permanent physicists (2/3 CEA, 1/3 CNRS), about thirty PhD students and postdocs, assisted by a support staff of about ten people. The IPhT also hosts permanently many short term visitors.


Amplitudes 2014, a Claude Itzykson memorial conference 


The 19th Itzykson conference will focus on recent progress in the computation of scattering amplitudes in quantum field theory and string theory.
The conference will take place at IPhT from June 10th to 13th, 2014, in the Claude Bloch lecture hall.
