The CERN Winter School on Supergravity, Strings and Gauge Theory is the continuation of the yearly training school of the former EC-RTN string network "Constituents, Fundamental Forces and Symmetries of the Universe". The 2020 edition of the school is supported and organized by the CERN Theory Department and will take place from Monday 4th February to Friday 8th February, at CERN.
The school will cover the following topics: Recent advances in Quantum Field Theory, String Cosmology, Swampland vs Landscape Conjectures, Matrix models and c=1 String Theory.
Previous schools in this series were organized in 2005 at SISSA in Trieste, and in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 at CERN, Geneva. The school is funded by the CERN Theory Department and the Arnold Sommerfeld Center at the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich.
Like its predecessors, this school is meant primarily for the training of doctoral students and young postdoctoral researchers in recent developments in theoretical high-energy physics and string theory. The program of the school will consist of five series of pedagogical lectures, complemented by discussion sessions in the afternoons.
