Following the tradition of the previous ERG meetings, we aim at bringing together researchers from different areas of theoretical physics who apply modern functional RG methods to describe and understand a variety of physical phenomena. A principal goal of the conference is to strengthen the growing communication between people working on different applications and aspects of the ERG, and to allow for a transfer of knowledge and methods. The main themes will be the application of the ERG to strongly correlated fermions, critical and quantum critical phenomena, particle physics, gauge theories and gravity, and non-equilibrium phenomena.
The conference will take place in the Centre Paul Langevin, a conference centre of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in the French Alps.
ERG2012 is a « Ecole Thématique et de formation du CNRS ».
