The new class of PhD students and post-doctoral fellows have joined the IAP in the fall of 2020.

During the welcome meeting that was held on November 12th 2020, the organization of the institute was presented to the new class, as well as the information they might need and the people they may contact during their stay in the laboratory.

The diversity of the subjects that will be addressed by these young researchers is large. Representative of this fact, their work at the IAP is funded by many sources: ministerial scholarships (including specific contracts for students from Ecole Polytechnique), scholarships from the Sorbonne Center for Artificial Intelligence (SCAI) and from the Initiative “Physique des Infinis” (IPI) of Sorbonne Université, scholarships from the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) and from the European Research Council (ERC) (for more information, see Partnerships). The entire staff of the IAP wishes them a fruitful stay, and many rich scientific exchanges.

The laboratory also congratulates the new doctors, who recently left the Institute at the end of their theses.
