100…(102!) Years of the Ising Model

Initially planned for 2020 to mark the 100th anniversary of the Ising model, the dedicated conference was finally held from May 30 to June 3, 2022, at IHES.

The Ising model is one of the most classical models of statistical physics and has been a testing ground for mathematicians and physicists for more than a century.

For the 100th (102!) anniversary of the Ising model, IHES wad pleased to host the special conference organized by Hugo Duminil-Copin (IHES), Slava Rychkov (IHES) and Béatrice de Tilière (Cérémade, Université Paris-Dauphine). These five days of talks, on subjects coming from various fields involved in the study of the model were an opportunity for scientists to exchange their views on a model that continues to fascinate and challenge them.

The conference was broadcast live online:
