ICGTMP series

The series of International Colloquia on Group Theoretical Methods in Physics was initiated in 1972 following the efforts of Henri Bacry in Marseille and Aloysio Janner in Nijmegen. The aim was to provide a forum for physicists interested in group theoretical methods which were mostly represented at that time by various communities, elementary particle theorists and phenomenologists, nuclear and atomic physicists and solid state specialists. Also mathematicians were eager to apply newly developed group theoretical techniques and algebraic structures. The annual Colloquia developed in an international series in the field of group theory in its widest sense and have earned a strong scientific reputation around the world.

Currently the ICGTMP attract theoretical and experimental physicists, mathematicians and scientists in related disciplines who are interested in the latest methods and applications of group theory in its widest sense.

(*) In 1988 the Colloquia changed from an annual to a biannual series.
In order to continue the annual meetings, members of the ICGTMP Standing Committee proposed to use the odd years to organize in our field a new series of meetings, more thematically diversified than the ICGTMP Colloquia.
