11th International Conference on Path Integrals

11th International Conference on Path Integrals

In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers have decided to postpone the conference to July 2021 (tentative dates are July 12 - 15). We hope to see you next year.


The 11th International Conference on Path Integrals, hosted by the Creighton University Department of Mathematics, aims to bring together researchers around the world who study path integrals in various settings as well as researchers who use path integrals in their particular areas of study.  The conference program will consist of plenary talks, contributed talks and a poster session.  For questions, please contact Lance Nielsen at lnielsen@creighton.edu

Creighton University has NOT contracted with any hotel booking service, but recommends conference attendees select either on-campus lodging (can be reserved at the time of conference registration) or lodging at the Element Omaha hotel through the link on the lodging page. Please be alert to recent scams in which conference attendees are contacted by those stating they are the booking agent for a conference.
