Gauge theories, supergravity and superstrings

2017, Jun 11 -- Jun 23

Organizers:
J. Russo (ICREA, U. Barcelona)

This workshop is intended to foster discussions in various aspects of supersymmetric gauge theories, supergravity and superstring theory. Topics include branes, dualities, exact results, localization, on-perturbative effects, higher spin theories, AdS/CFT and symmetries.

We plan to have a flexible program consisting of two talks in the morning and a discussion session in the evening. This includes pedagogical review talks. We may also have informal talks to encourage debate and new ideas, according to the wishes of the participants.
