The conference will take place in Paris, Institut du Cerveau (47 boulevard de l’Hôpital, 75013 Paris) November 23 and 24, 2021

This November, we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Pierre-Gilles de Gennes' Nobel Prize in Physics. On this occasion, we organize a 2-day international conference to celebrate de Gennes' scientific legacy. The idea is to show the relevance of this legacy for today's research, and how it constitutes a source of inspiration for the future.
Registration is now open. See the section "My registration" in the left banner.
 Due to the limited availability of seats, early registration is strongly recommended to ensure your participation.
