QCD and String Theory
2006, July 2 -- July 14
Dialogue, by Natalija Krisciuniene
The purpose of this meeting is to bring together a group of international
experts from the areas of QCD and string theory, in a relaxed atmosphere
conductive to discussion and research collaboration.
The intelectual feedback
between these two theoretical areas has been quite remarkable in the last
decade. Results from lattice field theory, AdS/CFT, twistor techniques,
large N methods, noncommutative geometry, black hole physics, quark-gluon
plasma, etc have been the source of extremely interesting overlapping.
It is expected that this meeting will contribute to further strengthen
such a fruitful communication between the two fields of research.
Participants are expected to arrive on Sunday July 2
and leave on Friday July 14.
A free bus will depart
from Barcelona (Universitat de Barcelona, Diagonal 647 (
metro: Palau Reial, green line) at 15.00h with a stop at the
airport bays between terminal A and B at 15.30h on July 2.
A return bus
Benasque to Barcelona airport will depart at 9.00h on July 14. The trip by bus takes 6h. The trip by car only takes 3.5h.
This session has received financial support from the following
institutions: BBVA, Ayuntamiento de
Benasque, Universitat de Barcelona, Universidad de Zaragoza and CSIC.
