PiTP 2023 Nathan Seiberg 3

Prospects in Theoretical Physics 2024

Quantum Matter Summer School

Program Description

From July 8 to 26, 2024, the Institute for Advanced Study will partner with Princeton University, offering consecutive summer programs focusing on the field of Ultra-Quantum Matter. The Institute’s two-week Prospects in Theoretical Physics (PiTP) Program will be followed by the one-week PCCM Summer School on Condensed Matter Physics

PiTP 2024: “Ultra-Quantum Matter” 
Date: July 8-19, 2024
PiTP is an intensive two-week summer program designed for advanced graduate students and postdoctoral scholars and will cover a broad range of topics in the theory of highly entangled quantum matter.  This subject cuts across traditional subdisciplines of theoretical physics, and the program will feature lectures from experts in condensed matter physics, high energy physics, and quantum information science. PiTP will occur on the Institute’s campus Monday, July 8 through Friday, July 19. Applications Closed 

PCCM 2024: "Quantum Matter, Superconductivity, Topology and Correlations"
Date: July 22-26, 2024
The Princeton Summer School will be held Monday, July 22 through Friday, July 26 on the IAS campus. Registration for week 3, including poster presentation information; will open later in April, 2024, due to an overwhelming interest and response to our joint summer program.  Please check periodically for updates.  Thank you for your understanding and support. for PCCM Summer School Only (No application necessary). Additional information (speakers, topics etc.) and a registration form will be posted when available on the PCCM website
