Introductory school at Institut d'Etudes Scientifiques de Cargèse

Quantum many-body systems out-of-equilibrium, Cargèse

November 26th to December 2nd, 2023 

This school is part of the thematic trimester program "Quantum many-body systems out-of-equilibrium" held at Institut Henri Poincaré, Paris


We will target this school around 5 themes: (1) spin systems, (2) integrable systems; (3) open quantum systems; (4) Luttinger's theory of liquids; (5) quantum transport theory.

Each theme will be discussed and developed during 3 lesson sessions of one and a half hours each.

The participants will be  requested to present a short talk or a poster. We will select the participants and the speakers with the help of the scientific committee.




Confirmed courses:


  • Quantum thermodynamics (Liliana Arrachea (Uni. San Martín, Buenos Aires)
  • Integrable systems (Jean-Sébastien Caux, Uni. Amsterdam) 
  • Open quantum systems (Tony Jin, InPhyNi, Nice)
  • Luttinger liquids (Thierry Giamarchi, Uni. Genève) 
  • Theoretical approaches to quantum many-body non-equilibrium (Johannes Schachenmayer, Uni. Strasbourg)

Shuttles organization on the 26th of November (from the airport of Ajaccio)

There will be two shuttles:

  • a first shuttle leaving at 3pm
  • a second shuttle leaving after the arrival of the participants flying in the plane from Paris that should land at 6:25 pm


Participants should have received a message concerning their shuttle.


Lodging information

Everybody will be lodged at the Institute (terminus of the shuttle)
