LAPTh, an overview

LAPTh is a mixed research unit (UMR 5108) of the CNRS lapth-lapp(within the Institute of Physics, INP) and the Université de Savoie. It is  located in Annecy-le-Vieux, 5km from the centre of Annecy and about 40km from CERN and Geneva.  The activities of LAPTh are centred around three main areas of research:

  • phenomenology of particle physics,
  • astroparticles and cosmology,
  • mathematical physics in particular field and string theory and  aspects of symmetry. 


Lauréat prix Daniel Guinier 2017


Le prix Daniel Guinier 2017 de la SFP a été décerné à Vivian Poulin, pour sa thèse intitulée "Signatures gravitationelles et électromagnétiques de particules massives en Cosmologie". Thèse dirigée par Pasquale D. Serpico (CNRS) et codirigée par Julien Lesgourgues (RWTH Aachen).

Vivian Poulin a préparé sa thèse au sein du Laboratoire d'Annecy-le-Vieux de Physique Théorique et de l'École doctorale de physique de Grenoble en cotutelle avec l'Université RWTH d'Aachen.

Ce prix Jeunes Chercheurs/euses de la Société Française de Physique, présenté par la Division Champs et Particules récompense un/e jeune ayant récemment soutenu sa thèse.

L'ensemble du laboratoire le félicite.




Recent Advances in Quantum Integrable Systems

These international meetings aim at bringing in contact people working on various aspects of the Theory of Quantum Integrable Systems. Applications of Integrable Systems, such as string/gauge theories, condensed matter physics or statistical physics are also emphasized. In particular, the two last days of RAQIS'18 will be dedicated to a Statistical Physics session devoted to out-of-equilibrium problems.


The conference will be held at LAPTh, Annecy from 10th to September 14th, 2018.

dsu2018 affichev4.5

The 14th international workshop on the "Dark Side of the Universe 2018" will be held at LAPTh, Annecy, France. The Dark Side of the Universe (DSU) workshops bring together a wide range of theorists and experimentalists to discuss ideas on models of the dark side, and relate them to current and future experiments.

Topics covered include dark matter, dark energy, cosmic rays, cosmology,  gravitational waves, and physics beyond the standard model.

CRISM 2018


LAPTh (Annecy), LPSC and IPAG (Grenoble) and LUPM (Montpellier) organize the

4th "Cosmic Rays and the InterStellar Medium"

(CRISM) Conference, that will be held at Saint-Martin-d'Hères, France, from 25 to 29 June 2018.

The main objective of this workshop is to contribute to a better review and understanding of the multiple effects of the energetic component of the interstellar medium. Topics include cosmic rays sources, cosmic rays transport, local interstellar medium and impact of galactic cosmic rays.

Post-doc Position Fall 2018

logo agc rc2015

 In the framework of the French Excellence Initiative, ENIGMASS, a consortium of the four laboratories (LAPP, LAPTh, LPSC and LSM), we are seeking candidates for a post-doctoral position at LAPTh Annecy. Priority will be given to applicants with expertise on precision calculations (QCD and electroweak higher order corrections) with applications to LHC physic. Applications from candidates working on LHC Phenomenology in a broader sense will also be considered. A good knowledge or familiarity with HEP Monte-Carlo generators, tools or techniques will be a bonus.

The successful candidate will join a team of theorists at LAPTh, in particular the permanent members of LAPTh (G. Bélanger, F. Boudjema, C. Delaunay, D. Guadagnoli, J.P. Guillet, B. Herrmann, E. Pilon and E. Re). Collaboration with theorists at LPSC Grenoble and with experimentalists in ATLAS (LAPP Annecy and LPSC Grenoble) is foreseen. The fellowship is awarded for a period of two years. Applications are to be made here 

Applications will be reviewed starting Dec. 11 2017. It is therefore highly advisable that the recommendation letters have reached by then. Submissions will remain open until the position is filled.

PhysTev Les Houches 2017

houches2017In a few weeks the high-energy physics team will be going to Les Houches, overseeing the 10th session of the Les Houches PhysTeV Workshop.

The highlight of the 2017 edition is to take full advantage of the 13TeV data that has been collected at the LHC so far and prepare for future runs. With this much data, following the discovery of a Higgs-like particle, one aim of this Workshop is how to best sharpen our tools and techniques in order to reconstruct the profile of this particle and possibly uncover New Physics. An equally important aim is to reassess some of the still open fundamental questions in the light of this discovery and investigate which kind of New Physics such a particle may be hinting at. The importance of precision measurements on the one hand and precision calculations and simulation on the other hand is central.
