Advisory Committee: Silviu  Pufu, Leonardo Rastelli, Slava Rychkov

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers with expertise in high-energy physics, bootstrap, and in condensed matter physics in order to discuss topics of mutual interest and share new ideas on topics such as

— The phases of Four- and Three-Dimensional Gauge Theories.
— Duality.
— The Continuing Study of Conformal Field Theories in Three Dimensions and Their Applications.
— The Classification of Anomalies and SPT Phases.
— Higher Symmetries.
— Phases of Lattice Models and Topological Excitations.
— Topological Quantum Field Theories.
