7th Joburg workshop on string theory: Strongly Coupled Gauge Theory, Integrable Systems & Holography
December 5-9, 2016, Department of Physics, University of Pretoria
This is a continuation of a very successful series of annual workshops held in South Africa since 2009. It aims to bring together local and international experts working on String Theory to stimulate interactions and discussions, which might lead to new research directions and collaborations.
This workshop is jointly organised by the Theoretical High Energy Physics group at the University of Pretoria and the Mandelstam Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of the Witwatersrand.
This year, the research part of the workshop will take place at the Physics Department of the University of Pretoria.
An integral part of the workshop is a PhD school, which was held at Wits from August 29 - September 2nd, 2016.
