Supergravity: what next?
This is a kick-off conference for the workshop "Supergravity: what next?". The important objectives for supergravity research in the next years will be discussed. This conference is expected to prompt a first exchange of ideas and to promote an energetic start of activities of the workshop.
- Cosmological applications to inflationary scenarios in relation with new observational data.
- Exceptional structures of supergravity, exotic branes, and non-geometric fluxes.
- Extensions of presently-known supergravities, including higher-derivative, or Dirac--Born--Infeld actions.
- Quantum supergravity, including the conclusions to be drawn from surprising finiteness results.
- Solutions of supergravity equations, including black holes and domain walls and implications for gauge-gravity dualities.
- Mathematical aspects of supergravity, including hidden symmetries and dualities.
