Random Geometry and Quantum Gravity

A thematic semestre at Institut Henri Poincaré from April to July 2020.

— - News : Due to the spread of Covid19 in France and around the world, the « summer » school at CIRM and the long term visits have been cancelled. We will evaluate the situation in due time in order to maintain/cancel/postpone the workshops.---

The governing idea of the trimester is to bring together researchers from
mathematics and physics which are working on random geometry and quantum gravity. The main aim of the program is to intensify the fruitful interactions between the researchers in these and related communities which have been more and more converging in the recent years in order to make significant progress on the outstanding problems at the interface of random geometry and quantum gravity.
