Gauge/Gravity Duality 2018

Conference Gauge/Gravity Duality 2018

30 July - 03 August 2018

Gauge/Gravity Duality has established itself as a significant new link between gravitation and quantum field theory. It provides as a major tool for describing strongly coupled quantum systems. It relates concepts of information of black hole physics and quantum information theory. Moreover, it creates significant new links between gauge theory and string theory.

The aim of the conference is to explore all aspects of gauge/gravity duality, both applied and theoretical, and to generate an extensive exchange of ideas.

At the conference, the topics to be discussed include gauge/gravity duality in the context of:

  • Quantum information,
  • Applications to condensed matter physics,
  • Applications to particle physics and to cosmology,
  • Supergravity, higher spin theory, integrability and the conformal bootstrap.

Postdocs and PhD students are particularly encouraged to apply for a parallel session talk (15+5 minutes) or for a poster.
