Location:  Les Houches, France

The mathematical developments in Quantum Field Theory on curved spacetimes provide an exceptional testing ground for concepts at the interface of General Relativity 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 open. The registration deadline is the 31st of March 2018 (or until all places are filled). The registration fee of 340 EUR (paid upon arrival) covers the accommodation as well as all the meals.
