The eleventh edition of the Modave Summer School in Mathematical Physics has taken place from September 13th to 18th, 2015. Some lectures notes are available in the section LECTURES of this website. Proceedings of those same lectures are published on Proceedings of Science.

The organizer committee from ULB, VUB, KULeuven and UMons invite you to the next edition, the XII Modave Summer School in Mathematical Physics, which will occur from September 11th to 17th, 2016.



Practical Information

Modave is a charming village in Belgium near Huy. The school will take place as every year at the center Les cent fontaines.

The arrival day is Sunday 13th of September 2015 from 4pm on (dinner is planned at 7pm on that evening). The departure day is either Friday 18th September 2015 from 7pm or Saturday 19th before 2pm. No lecture is foreseen on the 13th and on the 19th.

Modave is not very accessible; the simplest solution to get there is to take the train to Huy (from Brussels e.g.), from where we will organize a shuttle service to Modave. All details about trains (timetables, changes and names of intermediate stations, route plan…) can be found on the website of the Belgian National Railroad Company.

Organizing committee

Gabriele Conti (KUL), Laura Donnay (ULB), Laure-Anne Douxchamps (ULB), Marco Fazzi (ULB), Amaury Léonard (ULB), Jonathan Lindgren (VUB), Pujian Mao (ULB), Andrea Marzolla (ULB), Ruben Monten (KUL), Blagoje Oblak (ULB), Brecht Truijen (KUL) , Ellen van der Woerd (KUL), and Yannick Vreys (KUL).

We gratefully acknowledge the support of:




Leisure activities

Some activities will be proposed during the free time: different sport activities (we will most likely organize a 5km and a 10km race through the woods adjacent to the Modave castle),


a visit to the Modave castle and its gardens,


a game set on Thursday night (right after the BBQ). It might also be possible to visit a local brewery. Participation is discretionary.


To celebrate the tenth edition, some of the previous organizers (among whom Stephane, who also organized the first edition!) thought it would be nice to have some fireworks to illuminate the night sky over Modave.

Congrats to the team The Victorious, who won the school game -- an orienteering competition around the village (a scientific puzzle to be solved at each checkpoint) -- with the outstanding time of 19m46s!
