Every month on a Tuesday, since more than 20 years, the IAP organizes conferences open to the public. These conferences are held in our amphitheatre and start at 19:30.
The lectures on astrophysics and physics take place on the first Tuesday of each month. Their programme is established by Florence Durret, Guillaume Hébrard and Daniel Kunth.
Since 2022, another cycle entitled “Carte blanche à...” has been offered on the third Tuesday of each month. Its programme is established by François Bouchet, Jean Audouze and the Rationalist Union under the responsibility of Daniel Kunth.
In 2013, a series of monthly conferences entitled “Le ciel entre science et religions” (The Sky: between science and religion), jointly organized by the École Pratique des Hautes Études (IESR-EPHE) and the IAP, was also open to the public on the IAP premises. More information here.
We will post the program of the next conferences on this page. You can also follow us on social networks: Twitter and Facebook.
COVID-19 health crisis update: while continuing to broadcast our lectures live on YouTube, we can now once again welcome the public in our amphitheatre, with some constraints: capacity reduced, wearing of masks, health pass, mandatory reservation, as before.
The conferences are video recorded and live streamed on our Youtube channel, and visible online on Canal-U, after one week or so.
By clicking on the title of each conference, you can access their video recording and read the summaries for conferences to come.
The short film directed by Jean Mouette (in french only), on the occasion of the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the conferences dedicated to astrophysics and physics can be seen on Canal-U Web TV.
