Symposia and workshops

Each year, the IAP organizes an international symposium on a current topic in astrophysics, cosmology or gravitational physics. Many experts come together for a week and present their most recent observational or experimental results, as well as their interpretation and the understanding of the underlying physics. They also think about the progress they expect to make with future observatories, instruments, computer software and hardware, theoretical developments, and may even introduce and develop new lines of research. Participation is for professionals only, and one must sign up to attend.

In addition, the lab regularly hosts workshops that focus on particular subjects which are chosen amongst the different fields and projects of the lab. The range of topics covered in an individual workshop tends to be much narrower than those of the international symposia, allowing researchers to make progress in specific aspects of a research field. The workshops last several days and are meant for professionals only.

Upon Daniel Kunth’s suggestion, the IAP medal was created in 1985 by Jean Audouze, the founder of the IAP symposia. It honors astronomers who distinguish themselves in a subject discussed during the IAP symposia, enabling us to express our gratitude publicly for their significant contribution to increasing our understanding and scientific knowledge.

Code of conduct

The Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris holds symposia and workshops to provide to its members and the community an opportunity to present and hear about the latest research findings, in a respectful, inclusive, and ethical environment. All participants agree to abide by IAP's code of conduct, and to ensure that the event is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, and unprofessional or disruptive behavior.
