Workshop on Strongly-Interacting Field Theories


14 - 16 November

This workshop is founded by the DFG research training unit "Quantum and Gravitational Fields" (GK1523/1) and aims to bring together researchers from different areas of theoretical physics who study phases of strongly-interacting field theories. The main goal of the workshop is to provide a platform of the communication between people working on different aspects of strongly-interacting field theories, in order to allow for a transfer of knowledge and methods.

This year's workshop puts a special emphasis on beyond-equilibrium properties of field theories as well as on generic properties of conformal and supersymmetric field theories.

Confirmed speakers include:
  • J. Berges, Heidelberg
  • A. Codello, Trieste
  • P. H. Damgaard, Copenhagen
  • J. Erdmenger, Muenchen
  • V. Forini, Berlin
  • M. P. Heller, Amsterdam
  • K. Landsteiner, Madrid
  • E. Mottola, Los Alamos
  • J. M. Pawlowski, Heidelberg
  • R. Percacci, Trieste
  • A. Rebhan, Wien
  • A. Schäfer, Regensburg
  • J. Serreau, Paris
  • A. Vuorinen, Bielefeld
