Since then, the journée de Rham has been hosted each year in spring by the mathematics departments of EPFL and UNIGE. Each year, two speakers of international reputation are invited to present their work and future developments in mathematics. The journée de Rham aims at stimulating interactions bewteen phd students, postdoc and professors. It offers perspectives of mathematical sciences and establishes contacts between the participants at an international level.

Prof. Claudia de Rham (Imperial College London)
From de Rham Cohomology to Massive Gravity

de Rham Cohomology is the fundamental principle that governs any gauge symmetry and provides the building blocks for our understanding of particle physics. I will discuss how to make those dynamical for spin-1 field and implications for spin-2 fields and gravity.

Prof. Martin Hairer (Imperial College London)
Taming Infinities
