Summer School

The School on String Theory, Quantum Field Theory and Geometry of Spacetime will take place at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, from July 24 to July 28, 2016, the week before Strings 2016. Topics include basics of gauge/gravity duality, black hole physics, quantum entanglement, exact results in supersymmetric gauge theories, string perturbation and scattering amplitudes, integrability, F-theory. The school is intended for advanced graduate students and junior researchers, but more senior scientists who registered for Strings 2016 are also welcome.
