3rd French Russian Conference on Random Geometry and Physics: Sachdev–Ye–Kitaev Model and Related Topics (June 3–7, 2019, Steklov Mathematical Institute, Gubkina, 8, Conference hall, Moscow)
This conference aims at developing the French-Russian interaction at the mathematics/physics interface. There is a long tradition in both countries in theoretical and mathematical physics, and many cooperations existed in the past, using in particular the Laboratory Poncelet. However although the cooperation remains very active in pure mathematics it has been recently less active in physics.
For this iteration of the conference, we chose its main focus and subtitle to be the Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev model and related topics. It will include related problems on quantum gravity, especially about holography, quantum black holes, random tensors and the melonic approximation. However the conference is not narrowly focused: it will welcome the participation of scientists interested in related topics from quantum field theory, string theory, matrix models, integrable models, mathematical physics of random or quasi-periodic media. The goal is to encourage in particular the new generations of French and Russian theoretical and mathematical physicists to know each other.
