Workshop

Emergent Geometries from Strings and Quantum Fields   POSTPONED TO MAY 31, 2021

Mar 30, 2020 - May 08, 2020



Abstract
The workshop gathers experts on the main geometric structures emerging from string and field theories, in particular: Poisson geometry, noncommutative geometries, generalized geometries and open/closed string inspired (non)geometries, complex and Kaehler geometry, algebraic and super geometry, 3d quantum geometries. It aims at further interconnecting these researches thus paving the way to physical applications. Topological field theories, T- and U-dualities, supersymmetric field theories, superstrings, string field theory is a non-exhaustive list of topics where these new geometric tools emerged and inspired new directions. The expected outcome is a deeper understanding of the relations between geometry and physics, and ultimately advancements in the quantum structure of spacetime emerging from theories of fields and strings.

We regret to inform you that, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the whole six week GGI workshop "Emergent geometries from Strings and Quantum Fields" has been cancelled.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. The Hotel reservations made by the GGI housing service will be cancelled by us without fees for you. If you need further clarifications, please contact us.
The workshop has been rescheduled for the next year 2021. We would really appreciate your participation to the new activity, and, in case, you will need to apply again on the GGI website.
Further developments will be posted on the GGI webpages.

Sincerely Yours,

The workshop Organizers
