Frontiers in field and string theory

International Workshop, September 22-26, 2014

Yerevan, Armenia

The workshop will bring together active researchers in mathematical physics, string theory and quantum field theory.

The workshop is sponsored by the Volkswagen Foundation.


Main topics:

  • String Theory in nontrivial backgrounds
  • Generalized complex geometry
  • Interacting Higher Spin Gauge Theories
  • Instantons in Gauge and String Theories
  • N=2 SYM in four dimensions and correspondence to 2d CFT
  • Integrability in String Theory
  • Conformal (Higher Spin) Field Theory in Various Dimensions
  • Higher Spins, Strings and AdS/CFT

A review talk (60 minutes) is planned every day. The regular research talks are 45 minutes (including discussions).
