The third edition of the IFT-Perimeter-SAIFR Journeys into Theoretical Physics will take place on July 16-22, 2018 at the IFT-SAIFR in São Paulo.

    • Lecturers:
      • Kevin Costello (Perimeter) – An introduction to topology for physicists
      • Gastão Krein (IFT-UNESP) – Effective quantum field theory
      • Aline Ramires (ETH Zurich/ICTP-SAIFR/IFT-UNESP/MPI-PKS) – Aspects of Superconductivity
      • David Schwab (CUNY/Princeton) – Current theoretical problems in biophysics
      • Kendrick Smith (Perimeter) – Physics of the Early Universe

       

      The school is aimed at exceptional undergraduates in their last year from all countries in Latin America. It is associated with a partnership between ICTP-SAIFR/IFT-UNESP, the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and the CUNY/Princeton Center for the Physics of Biological Function, and is also related to a joint international masters program between the institutes.
