String Phenomenology, April 23rd – 27th, 2012

Organized by Mike Douglas, Gordon Kane and Dave Morrison String phenomenology is the field which attempts to make contact between string theory and “real world” physics such as experiments at particle colliders, cosmology and astroparticle physics.  Especially after the duality revolution of the 90’s, major progress has been made towards constructing string models which reproduce […]

Topological Phases of Matter: June 10-14, 2013

Organized by Paul Fendley (University of Virginia), Andreas Ludwig (UCSB), Xiao-Liang Qi (Stanford), Nicholas Read (Yale), Steven Simon (Oxford) and Zhenghan Wang (Microsoft Station Q)       A topological phase of matter can be broadly defined as a (quantum-mechanical) phase of matter in which the ground state has a gap for all local excitations. This […]

F-theory Workshop, 3/19/12 – 3/23/12

Organized by Mike Douglas, Dave Morrison and Antonella Grassi This workshop will explore the recent progress in F-theory, including the detailed structure of elliptic fibrations on Calabi-Yau manifolds, techniques inspired by duality with the heterotic string, the role of flux, the relation to orientifold constructions, and applications to string phenomenology.  Participants will include both mathematicians […]

Topological Quantum Computing, September 12 – 16, 2011

We are pleased to announce the upcoming workshop, Quantum: Topology, Information, Computation, to be held at Stony Brook University from September 12 through September 16, 2011. Quantum has become ubiquitous in topology, information, and computation. The central theme of the workshop evolves around mathematical and scientific challenges in the topological approach to building a large-scale […]
