CERN Winter School on Supergravity, Strings and Gauge Theory 2021 (via Zoom)

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

The CERN Winter School on Supergravity, Strings and Gauge Theory is the continuation of the yearly training school of the former EC-RTN string network "Constituents, Fundamental Forces and Symmetries of the Universe". This year the school will take place online.

The school is supported and organized by the CERN Theory Department.

The school will cover the following topics: Quantum gravity, supersymmetric black holes, gravitational waves, integrability, swampland vs. landscape conjectures.

Previous schools in this series were organized in 2005 at SISSA in Trieste, and from 2006 at CERN, Geneva.

The school is funded by the CERN Theory Department and the Arnold Sommerfeld Center at the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich.

Like its predecessors, this school is meant primarily for the training of doctoral students and young postdoctoral researchers in recent developments in theoretical high-energy physics and string theory.

The program of the school will consist of five series of pedagogical lectures, complemented by the discussions in the dedicated Slack channels.

The registration is now closed. The registered participants will receive the Zoom link via email. There will be also a live webcast of the lectures open to everyone.

Local organizers: A. Grassi, S. Komatsu, W. Lerche, K. Papadodimas, A. Zhiboedov

Speakers: Henry Maxfield, Sameer Murthy, Rafael Porto, Bogdan Stefanski, Irene Valenzuela.
