Simons Summer Workshop: July 17 to August 11, 2017

This Workshop is the tenth conducted by the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at Stony Brook and the fifteenth in the series Simons Summer Workshops. This year’s Summer Workshop will focus on strings and QFT without supersymmetry, including non-supersymmetric vacuum constructions in string theory, dualities in nonsupersymmetric theories in 3 and other dimensions, issues in connection with deSitter space and its stability, as well as bootstrap techniques which also apply to nonsupersymmetric contexts.
