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 school is supported and organized by the CERN Theory Department.
The school will cover the following topics: Quantum gravity, supersymmetric black holes, gravitational waves, integrability, swampland vs. landscape conjectures.
Previous schools in this series were organized in 2005 at SISSA in Trieste, and from 2006 at CERN, Geneva. Link to the previous editions in the left menu.
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 the discussions in the dedicated Slack channels.
We particularly encourage students from Ukraine to apply for the school. We have funds for additional financial support.
