Focus Week

Applications of AdS/CFT to condensed matter systems

Nov, 01 2010 - Nov, 05 2010

The total number of participants is limited to about 70 people. Participants are encouraged to propose contributed talks. For their accommodation the participants should contact Studio Guidi (tel: +39 055 241561; fax: +39 055 2346178). There will be no proceedings but pdf of talks will be posted on the conference webpage. There will be a conference fee of 100 Euros to help defray costs of lunches and coffee breaks.

AdS4/CFT3 and the Holographic States of Matter

During the final week of the GGI program AdS4/CFT3 and the Holographic States of Matter, we aim to bring together experts from the string theory community as well as from the condensed matter physics community- in the latter case theoreticians and experimentalists - who are interested in applications of Holography to condensed matter systems.
Speakers include:
E. Fradkin, P. Phillips, T. Faulkner, S. J. Rey, K. Schalm, C. Bachas, S. Hartnoll. P. Kraus
