Group33: POSTPONED UNTIL 2021

In the present circumstances of unstoppable avance of the COVID-19 pandemic around the world the Standing Committee of the ICGTMP and the Local Organising Committee have decided to postpone Group33 until 7-11 June 2021.

 2020 HERMANN WEYL PRIZE

The 2020 Hermann Weyl Prize has been awarded to Erik Panzer of  the University of Oxford (UK) for his pioneering achievements in the calculation of amplitudes in gauge theories, for developing new mathematical structures that exploit the language of symmetries, and for his contribution to the description of important physical phenomena present in Nature.

2020 HERMANN WEYL PRIZE

 Call for nominations (OPEN until January 31, 2020)

The purpose of the Hermann Weyl Prize is to provide recognition for young scientists who have performed top level original work in the area of understanding physics through symmetries.

To be eligible for the Hermann Weyl Prize, the candidate should be either 35 years of age or younger, or be within 5 years of having received the doctoral degree, at the time of the deadline of the application.

Candidates should be nominated by or through the members of the Standing Committee of ICGTMP

Each nomination should include:
1. A copy either of a valid identification document that indicates the age of the nominee or of the PhD diploma according to the eligibility criterion used by the candidate.
2.  The relevant work of the nominee (open access links are OK) together with a summary of up to 4 pages of her/his work.
3.  A brief CV of the nominee.
4.  A letter from the nominating scientist introducing the nominee and appraising his/her work.
5.  At least two letters of support for the nomination. These letters cannot be from the members of the Selection Committee.
The deadline for the nomination of candidates is JANUARY 31, 2020.

Group33: Preliminary Bulletin

The 33rd International Colloquium on Group Theoretical Methods in Physics (Group33) will be held in Cotonou, Republic of Benin, from Monday 13th July until Friday 17th July 2020.

This is the first time that ICGTMP will take place in Africa. It is being organized under the auspices of the Benin National Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters, and with sponsorship of the Benin Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research.

The Group33 is a historic milestone for Africa, and will build bridges between scientists, mathematicians and students from Africa and from all other continents. In particular, we feel that African participants as well as others in the scientific community, will benefit greatly from your presentation.

Travelling to Benin has become quite easy. You just complete a short online e-Visa application form for visiting Benin. This allows a citizen of any of the eligible countries with passports that are valid for at least six (6) months from the expected date of entry into Benin, to obtain a Benin e-Visa for tourism or business purposes, which is sent by e-mail.

As a precaution against the possibility of malaria, it is recommended to take prescribed medication for the period of your stay. We would be glad to provide you with any additional information or assistance in connection with planning your travel to Benin.


Group32: PRAGUE July 9-13 2018

The 32nd International Colloquium on Group Theoretical Methods in Physics (Group32) will be held at Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic, from Monday 9th July until Friday 13th July 2018. Arrival date 8th July and departure date 14th July.

Registration deadline for scientific contributions : 10 June 2018


 2018 WIGNER MEDAL

The 2018 Wigner Medal has been awarded to Pavel Winternitz of  the Université de Montreal (Canada) for his fundamental contribution to the determination and application of symmetries in the resolution of differential equations and (super-) integrable systems.

 

The 2018 Hermann Weyl Prize has been awarded to:
Simon Caron-Huot (McGill University, Canada) in recognition of seminal contributions in the areas of scattering amplitudes in gauge theories and conformal bootstrap, examples are: the generalization to general helicities of the amplitude/Wilson loop duality and the analog of the Froissart-Gribov formula in conformal field theory
and
David Simmons-Duffin (Caltech, USA)  for breakthroughs in the analytical and numerical development of the conformal bootstrap method and its applications, in particular to the understanding of the critical point of the 3D Ising model.

The 2016 Wigner Medal has been awarded to Bertram Kostant of  the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA) for his fundamental contributions to representation theory that led to new branches of mathematics and physics.

The Chair of the Selection Committee, Professor Michio Jimbo of Rikkyo University, Tokyo, said: “the lifelong achievements of Bertram Kostant have had profound impact in pure mathematics. At the same time, his work miraculously has been finding its way to physics. Kostant’s winning the award perfectly suits the spirit of Wigner who coined the famous phrase the `unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in the physical sciences’.”   more…


The 2016 Hermann Weyl Prize has been awarded to Vasily Pestun of Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (France) for his groundbreaking results in the study of supersymmetric gauge theories, such as his ingenious computation of partition functions that led to the discovery of rich connections between four-dimensional and two-dimensional quantum field theories.
The Chair of the Selection Committee, Professor Edward Frenkel of University of California, Berkeley, said: “Vasily Pestun’s original contributions opened new opportunities for fruitful interaction between mathematics and quantum physics. It is quite fitting that his work is honored by the prize named after Hermann Weyl, a pioneer in both of these fields who used to say that in his research he always tried to unite the true and the beautiful.”  more…
