Canceled Simons Summer Workshop: Strings and Geometry July 13 – August 7, 2020


Due to the current pandemic, Stony Brook University will remain closed throughout the 2020 summer. The Simons Summer Workshop 2021 will run from July 12-August 6.

Scientific organizer: Cumrun Vafa
Local organizer: Martin Rocek

This Workshop is the thirteenth conducted by the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at Stony Brook and the eighteenth in the series Simons Summer Workshops. This year’s summer workshop will focus on Strings and Geometry. For many decades, string theory and geometry have stimulated and enriched each other by the study of string compactifications. In this workshop we hope to review the many facets of this deep link in hope of furthering this rich interaction between these two fields.
