Gauge theories, supergravity and superstrings


L.F. Alday (Oxford), J.D. Edelstein (IGFAE, U. Santiago de Compostela), P. West (King's Coll. London)

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, non-perturbative effects, higher spin theories, conformal field theories, AdS/CFT and symmetries.

We plan to have a flexible program that includes pedagogical talks and discussion sessions. We may also have informal talks to encourage debate and new ideas.

The conference will be held in the 'Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual' and it is intended to stimulate the exchange of ideas between scientists with different views of the field.

The Center provides many facilities and an agreeable atmosphere to allow the participants to carry their work during the meeting.

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.
