Owing to the current epidemic situation, the in-person 4-weeks 12th edition of the Festival de Théorie has been postponed to June-July, 2022.
As 11th edition, we will be running a series of online Zoom « Festival de Theorie Lectures » in the spirit of our long tutorials, accessible and pedagogic.

The programme is reproduced below.
We hope to see you online for fruitful discussions before resuming to our more usual format.
Every two years the « festival de Théorie » aims to promote interactions beetween PhD students, postdocs and young scientists in fusion plasma physics & related fields (including theory, simulation and experiment) with leading reseachers from around the world, in a collaborative environment where current ideas are discussed.
This year’s topic is « Phase Dynamics »
For 2019, the Program is organized around a four-week courses of study and research involving a core group of prominent scientists closely interacting with a small group of competitively selected graduate & postgraduate Fellows.
WEEKS 1 & 2
The program commences with two weeks of Seminar by prominent scientists and a serie of Principales Lectures broadening Seminar topics.
WEEKS 3 & 4
Research projects are pursued in weeks 3 & 4 . They aim at associating about 10 competitively-selected Fellows with Research Scientists & Lecturers on topics spanning plasma physics, fluid dynamics, astrophycics & applied mathematics
TRAVEL & HOUSING SUPPORT
