Gauge/Gravity Duality 2021


ZOOM only at CERN

 Gauge/Gravity Duality has established itself as a significant link between gravitation and quantum field theory. It provides a major tool for describing strongly coupled quantum systems. It relates concepts of information of black hole physics and quantum information theory. Moreover, it creates significant new links between quantum field theory and string theory. Previous conferences in this series have been held in Würzburg (2018), Florence (2015) and Munich (2013).

The aim of the conference is to explore all aspects of gauge/gravity duality, both applied and theoretical, and to generate an extensive exchange of ideas. 

At the conference, the topics to be discussed include gauge/gravity duality in the context of:

• Quantum information, 
• Applications to condensed matter physics, 
• Applications to particle physics and to cosmology, 
• Supergravity, integrability and the conformal bootstrap.
