Integrability in Classical and Quantum Field Theory

Scope of the school

The Young Researchers Integrability School and Workshop (YRISW) is an ongoing series of meetings devoted to review the latest advances in exact techniques in theoretical physics, at the frontier with mathematics. Past editions have focused on integrable quantum field theories, exact results in AdS/CFT, two dimensional conformal field theory, and superconformal field theories. The aim of the 2023 school will be to explore the role of classical and quantum symmetries in two-dimensional integrable models and their applications to solving these theories.

The YRISW spirit

The 2023 edition will be the seventh in a series of meetings, characterised by an underlying idea: a meeting for young researchers, designed by young researchers. The topics are presented in a pedagogical way, combining lectures and tutorials, to be accessible to PhD students in theoretical physics as well as to exceptional MSc students. All courses are part of a coherent narrative to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest advances in this modern topic.


It is necessary to apply in order to attend the school. The deadline for applications is 16 May 2023. Limited financial support is available.
