Call for Proposals for Scientific Programs and Workshops – Deadline September 30th, 2021

The Simons Center for Geometry and Physics (SCGP) at Stony Brook University is seeking proposals for scientific programs/workshops/conferences for the 2022-23 and future academic years. SCGP is a research center devoted to furthering fundamental knowledge in mathematics, not (strictly) limited to geometry, and theoretical physics, especially knowledge at the interface of these two disciplines. Each […]

SCGP Postdoc Gabriel Cuomo receives the CHIPP Prize 2021

Last year, 2020, Gabriel Cuomo successfully defended his PhD thesis in theoretical particle physics at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). For this academic achievement, the Sicilian-born physicist, now a member of the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, received the Doctoral Students Award of the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics (CHIPP). The prize will […]

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

Organized by Amihay Hanany, Marcus Sperling, Antoine Bourget and Julius Grimminger 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 the renormalization group (RG) flow. Consequently, several questions need […]
