#### New Perspectives in String Theory School

**Jun 08, 2009 - Jun 19, 2009**

**Abstract**

Within the GGI workshop "New Perspectives in String Theory", this two-week school aims to provide an updated introduction to modern trends in String Theory and to offer highly qualified students the tools to tackle interesting emerging problems in such a competitive field. Each lecturers will give a mini-course of two lectures of two hours each.

Registration for the School is no more possible, all available positions have been filled.

**Organizers**

Costas Bachas (Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, France), Massimo Bianchi
(University of Roma Tor Vergata, Italy), Michel Green (DAMTP, Cambridge
University, UK), Jeff Harvey (Chicago University, USA), Augusto Sagnotti
(Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa, Italy), Ashoke Sen (Harish-Chandra
Research Institute, Allahabad, India)
