AdS4/CFT3 and the Holographic States of Matter



Abstract
String and M-theory can provide useful information for transport phenomena of strongly interacting theories, both in 3+1 as well as in lower dimensions. The crucial theoretic setup for such studies is AdS/CFT. The conference aims in bringing together experts working in applied as well as in more theoretic aspects of AdS/CFT, to discuss and develop further the various techniques and concepts that are currently used in efforts to understand the Holographic States of Matter.
Speakers include:
A. Zaffaroni, D. Jafferis, D. Martelli, G. Horowitz, K. Sfetsos, M. Taylor, M. Rangaman, i O. Bergman, J. Gauntlett, D. Minic, I. Bakas, N. Lambert,
