### Conference

#### Supergravity at 40

**Oct 26, 2016 - Oct 28, 2016**

**Abstract**

On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the construction of the first supergravity action, the highlights of 40 years of supergravity research will be reviewed, and its expected impact on future research lines will be discussed. In parallel to this, the results of the workshop "Supergravity: what next?" will be presented.

**Topics**

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.

**Invited speakers****:** Laura Andrianopoli, Nikolay Bobev, John-Joseph Carrasco, Davide Cassani, Sergio Ferrara, Pietro Frè, Dan Freedman, Gary Gibbons, Michael Green, Adolfo Guarino, Murat Gunaydin, Chris Hull, Olaf Hohm, Alberto Lerda, Dieter Lüst, Dario Martelli, Hermann Nicolai, Yi Pang, Krzysztof Pilch, Chris Pope, Ergin Sezgin, Dimitrios Tsimpis, Stefan Vandoren, Peter Van Nieuwenhuizen, Thomas Van Riet, Jorge Zanelli
