Chandan Dasgupta (ICTS-TIFR, India), Abhishek Dhar (ICTS-TIFR, India), Smarajit Karmakar (TIFR-Hyderabad, India) and Samriddhi Sankar Ray (ICTS-TIFR, India)
15 December 2021 to 17 December 2021

The 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded, in part, to Giorgio Parisi of Sapienza University of Rome ``for the discovery of the interplay of disorder and fluctuations in physical systems from atomic to planetary scales.'' In a uniquely diverse career, Professor Parisi has made, and continues to make, pioneering contributions in several areas of statistical mechanics, quantum field theory, disordered and complex systems. This discussion meeting assembles experts to help understand the scale of Parisi's work in all these areas as well as place them in the context of the outstanding questions of today.

As a part of this discussion meeting, Giorgio Parisi will deliver the ICTS distinguished lecture on 16 December, 2021.
