### Conference

#### Large-N Gauge Theories Conference

**May 02, 2011 - May 06, 2011**

**Abstract**

The conference will focus on all aspects of large-N gauge field theories. In particular various aspects of the AdS/CFT correspondence, including finite temperature field theory and dynamical flavors, large-N equivalences and volume reduction, glueballs and k-strings at large-N from the lattice and other analytic field theory results.

**Organizers**

A. Armoni (Swansea), T. Cohen (Maryland), G. Grignani (Perugia), H. Neuberger (Rutgers),

L. Yaffe (Seattle), A. Zaffaroni (Milano Bicocca).
