About

The Winnipeg Institute for Theoretical Physics (WITP) is the consortium of all the theoretical physicists within Manitoba and exists to support theoretical physics research in the province. It carries out this mandate by encouraging collaboration between members of the Institute and by financially supporting workshops, visiting colloquium speakers, and short- and long-term visits by research collaborators of international standing.

The WITP's Permanent Members are theoretical physicists (and allied scientists) drawn from the physics (and mathematics) departments of Brandon University, the University of Manitoba, and the University of Winnipeg. The WITP is jointly funded by all three universities, and it is a joint institute of the Universities of Manitoba and Winnipeg.

Research at the WITP includes work in astrophysics, condensed matter physics, cosmology, gravity, mathematical physics, particle physics, quantum computation, quantum field theory, statistical mechanics, and string theory. The WITP aims to encourage collaboration among its members and interaction across disciplines.
