The past few years have seen a resurgence of interest in integrability as a powerful tool for the understanding of non-perturbative phenomena in quantum and statistical-mechanical systems. This will be the fifth in a series of workshops on this topic, building on previous meetings (I, II, III, IV) that were primarily supported by the Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics located in Pohang, Korea. The workshop is intended to stimulate the exchange of ideas between scientists in the field and, in part, it is being held in symbiosis with the INSTANS Summer School at Benasque (20 June -- 3 July).

The List of Topics Include:

  • • Solvable lattice models and integrable systems
  • • Bethe ansatz and finite-size technology
  • • Thermodynamic Bethe ansatz
  • • Bulk and boundary conformal and quantum field theory
  • • Integrability in the AdS/CFT correspondence

This workshop will be held in the 'Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual' in Benasque. Benasque is a beautiful mountain village located 1140 m above sea level, in a valley at the heart of the Pyrenees, about 140 km north of the city of Zaragoza. The beautiful landscapes, scenic hikes and the proximity to the highest peaks in the Pyrenees make Benasque one of the main tourist sites in the region. The Center provides many facilities and an agreeable atmosphere to allow the participants to carry out their work during the workshop.

Registration must be completed through this website, not later than April 17.

The organization will only be able to cover the accommodation expenses for a limited number of participants. Those who will need it should add a comment when filling in the registration form. The organizers will communicate the final list of participants by the end of April.
