The annual Landau-Dirac School in Fundamental Physics was established in 2015 within the Russian-French PhD program. The School is founded by the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI, the University of Savoy, the University of Grenoble and the Keldysh Applied Mathematics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences. It aims on attracting young researches, PhD and master students from Russian and French universities and research centers as well as from other countries for lectures of leading world experts in different fields of fundamental physics including astrophysics and cosmology, elementary particle physics, physics of superstrong gravitational and electromagnetic fields, solid state physics, plasma physics and other fields.

The first session of the School has been conducted in June 2015 in Annecy, France.

The second session entitled “Visions in Fundamental Physics” and dedicated to the memory of Prof. Nikolay Narozhny, an eminent Russian theorist, will be held in Moscow, Russia at the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI on December 10-16, 2016. The focus of the current session will be made on the three fields of fundamental physics:
- Extreme Light Science
- Gravitation, Cosmology and Fundamental Interactions
- Elementary Particles and Nuclear Physics at Modern Accelerators

Young scientists, PhD and master students from MEPhI and other Universities and research centers are invited to attend the School. An application form should be sent to the School secretary ( before December 5. For a limited number of external participants, accomodation at the MEPhI guesthouse will be provided by the organizers.

All School participants are invited to give short (15-20 min) presentations on their reserach activities. A title and a short abstract of the proposed presentation should be submitted to the School secretary jointly with the application form.

-5...+4° C

In Moscow outside temperatures in December may be quite unpredictable and is either possible to fall down to -20ºC (about -5 ºF) or to rise above 0ºC (+32ºF). Please, be sure you will bring warm clothes for the first possibility and an umbrella or a raincoat for the second one.
