Festival de Théorie 2011

General Principles for Relaxation and Self-Organization

4 - 22 July 2011,  Aix-en-Provence, France



The attached programme document contains 2 parts:

Part I is a tentative list of topics. Names of leaders are attached to it. These leaders are expected to organize the round table discussions, working sessions, the reporting and discussion sessions. Feel free to add new topics, related to the festival theme.

Part II is a draft of agenda. Participants should check their availability and send a title back to the organizers. Tutorial talks are there to introduce the various aspects of the Festival main topics. A substantial fraction of a tutorial should be pedagogical. In particular they should be accessible to the various scientific communities present in the audience. Jargon should be avoided as much as possible.

Invited talks are more focused and should highlight results related to the festival theme. Lectures are intended to students and young physicists, to clarify some of the concepts and results presented (or to be presented) in tutorials. Blackboard style is expected. Senior physicists are not expected to attend lectures. They were much appreciated by most students during the previous festivals. As a consequence, their number has been increased. Moreover it is intended to publish these lectures.
Participants whose names appear in the provisional agenda should mention whether they accept to present and write a lecture. Student sessions are an opportunity for students to present their results. Talks should not exceed 10 minutes. Candidates should contact the organizers to get a slot (please send a title and a short abstract).
