Cécile DeWitt-Morette

on the May 9, 2017

December 21st, 1922 - May 8th, 2017.

In the early 50’s, thanks to her energy, courage, and vision, Cécile has very quickly created a unique and internationally renowned meeting place for physics. In bringing together the great physics masters and successive generations of young researchers in a spectacular and stimulating location, the Physics school has strongly contributed to the development of the French, European and International Physics.

The numerous Nobel laureates who have studied or taught in Les Houches are joining all students from around the world and the school permanent staff to express our deepest condolences to Cecile’s family as well as our deep recognition for her achievements.
