Holography and Dualities 2016: New Advances in String and Gauge Theory
from 30 March 2016 to 22 April 2016 Nordita, Stockholm

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
  • Integrability
  • Symmetries in string theory
  • Supersymmetric localization
  • Bootstrap methods
  • Applications of holography in QCD and condensed-matter systems

Participants will include L.F. Alday (Oxford U.), M. Cederwall (Chalmers, Gothenburg), G. Festuccia (Uppsala U.), T. Harmark (NBI, Copenhagen), C. Hull (Imperial College, London), N. Gromov (King's College, London), V. Kazakov (ENS, Paris), D. Martelli (King's College, London), J. Minahan (Uppsala U.), B. Nilsson (Chalmers, Gothenburg), N. Obers (NBI, Copenhagen), J. Plefka (Humboldt U., Berlin), R. Roiban (Penn State), G. Semenoff (UBC, Vancouver), B. Sundborg (Stockholm U.), R. Szabo (Heriot-Watt U. Edinburgh), A. Tseytlin (Imperial College, London), M. Zabzine (Uppsala U.).

The program is jointly organized by Nordita, by the Marie Curie Initial Training Network GATIS, and by the COST Action MP1210 “The String Theory Universe”.
