Collection Mikefest : A conference in honor of Michael Douglas’ 60th birthday
We are organizing a conference at the IHES on the occasion of Michael R. Douglas' 60th birthday. Mike has a long association with IHES, as a visiting professor in 2000-2008 (Louis Michel Chair), by leading the US-based fundraising effort, and as a president and chairman of the Friends of IHES in 2013-2021. The conference will cover the topics on which Mike has worked and made profound contributions: string theory, matrix models, physical mathematics, and machine learning.
