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.

Johannes Henn, Director and Scientific Member of the Max Planck Institute for Physics

johannes-henn

Johannes Henn former Erasmus master student in physics at the Université de Savoie and former PhD student at LAPTh under the supervision of Prof. Emeri Sokatchev, has been appointed as a new Director at the Max Planck Institute for Physics. Johannes, 37 years old, is one of the world's leading experts in the research field of scattering amplitudes, which are used for the precise description of accelerator experiments. It is a very innovative research area, which establishes a close link between theoretical and experimental particle physics. Johannes has been running a research group for theoretical and mathematical physics at Mainz University since 2015.

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.


   

PhysTeV 2019 Les Houches

lh2019 logoThis series of workshops, started 20 years ago, aims  to bring together theorists and experimentalists working on the phenomenology of  TeV colliders with an emphasis on the physics at the LHC. The highlight of the 2019 Les Houches Edition is to take full advantage of the data that has been collected at the LHC so far and prepare for the future runs. In the light of the LHC results, a reflection on the strategy in HEP and prospects from future facilities (at high and low energy) should be conducted. The Workshop will address issues such as how to best exploit these data as well as how to prepare for future LHC data, and what is most desirable in LHC upgrades. These activities will be conducted in close connection with the development and improvements of related theory tools, in particular of Monte-Carlo event generators. The role of machine learning and artificial intelligence will be part of these new development. The Workshop runs over one year, including two meetings in Les Houches in the month of June, and exchanges and collaborations before and after the meetings. The meetings in Les Houches will consist of two sessions:

Session I: 10-19 June 2019 with emphasis on SM-related issues.

Session II: 19-28 June 2019   with emphasis on New-Physics searches

La Nuit des Ondes Gravitationnelles

OG-affiche

La Nuit des ondes gravitationnelles sera l'occasion pour des lycéens, étudiants et tous les curieux des sciences de venir s'informer et échanger sur cette découverte scientifique majeure lors d'une grande soirée festive qui se tiendra simultanément dans 12 villes en France et 2 villes en Italie.

Dans chacune de ces villes, la soirée commencera à 18h30. A Paris la soirée se terminera par une conférence portant sur la relativité dans le cinéma de science-fiction. Elle sera présentée par Quentin Lazzarotto, cinéaste, et Richard Taillet, physicien. En s’appuyant sur plusieurs extraits de films, les intervenants décrypteront les différentes façons de montrer de la science au cinéma.
