There has been significant recent progress in understanding deformations of integrable string sigma models, their relation to non-abelian and Poisson-Lie duality, and their possible AdS/CFT interpretation in terms of non-commutative field theory. These models can also be naturally recast in terms of double and exceptional field theory. Numerous interesting connections between these research areas are developing, promising to shed light on important open questions.

The goal of this conference is to bring together experts in:

  • Integrable models and their deformations
  • Worldsheet dualities and extended field theories
  • Non-commutative and non-associative field theory
  • Integrability in gauge/gravity duality

to facilitate the exchange of ideas, collaboration, and new developments across these fields.

Registration will remain open until the end of May.
