The Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP) welcomes visiting researchers, and hosts conferences and seminars. Since its establishment in 1928, it has played a major role in the scientific exchanges of a wide range of fields related to mathematics, including theoretical physics, statistics, theoretical computer science and mathematical biology. It was at the IHP that Einstein and Volterra, among many other renowned scientists, introduced their theories in France, and the IHP was also the birthplace of the first french computer project.
The IHP endeavours to combine its long tradition with the introduction of modern equipment and techniques. An extensive renovation program of our lecture halls,
computer network, website and audiovisual materials is currently being undertaken, while at the same time preserving the historical character of the premises.
The IHP is a meeting point for the extremely rich scientific environment of Paris, and also a well established meeting place for the French and international communities of mathematics and theoretical physics.
