The holographic duality has provided new insights into the physics of strongly-coupled systems by bridging together different subjects thought before to be completely unrelated, such as hydrodynamics and physics of black holes, string theory and strongly-coupled phenomena in condensed-matter physics, integrable systems and non-perturbative behavior of gauge fields. Symmetries have played an important role in these developments and have led to development of new non-perturbative methods based for example on integrability, bootstrap and localization.
The aim of the program is to discuss new developments in dualities and holography, with focus on
- Gauge/string dualities
- Symmetries in string theory
- Supersymmetric localization
- Bootstrap methods
- Applications of holography in QCD and condensed-matter systems
