Generalized Global Symmetries, Quantum Field Theory, and Geometry: August 29-September 2, 2022

Organizer: Michele Del Zotto (Uppsala) and Sakura Schafer-Nameki (Oxford) Over the past ten years tremendous progress has been achieved in quantum field theory thanks to the realization that symmetries can be interpreted in terms of the action of topological defects on the space of operators. This gives a generalization of the notion of symmetries, explicitly […]

5d N=1 SCFTs and Gauge Theories on Brane Webs: October 17 – October 21, 2022

Organized by Amihay Hanany, Imperial College London, Marcus Sperling, Tsinghua University, Antoine Bourget, Imperial College London, Julius Grimminger, Imperial College London. Five dimensional (5d) Lagrangian gauge theories are non-renormalizable, however many 5d N=1 supersymmetric gauge theories can be understood as effective infrared (IR) descriptions of 5d or 6d conformal fixed points in the ultraviolet (UV) under […]

Geometry of (S)QFT: October 10 – October 14, 2022

Organized by: Ibrahima Bah, John Hopkins University and Shlomo Razamat, Technion. Quantum field theory (QFT) is a universal language used to describe a wide variety of phenomena in Nature, including elementary particles, condensed matter systems, and cosmology. Despite its remarkable successes, novel toolkits are needed for exploring the landscape of QFTs and for computing and […]
