The Ising model is one of the most classical models of statistical physics and has been a testing ground for mathematicians and physicists for a century. On the occasion of its 100th anniversary, postponed from 2020 to 2022, the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHES) organises a special conference that will take place 30 May to 3 June 2022, with talks from various fields involved in the study of the model.

This event should serve as a platform between mathematicians and physicists working in the domain. 

This conference is organised by: Hugo Duminil-Copin (IHES), Slava Rychkov (IHES) and Béatrice de Tilière (Cérémade, Univ. Paris-Dauphine)
