The workshop will take place in Durham, UK from August 21th to August 25th in 2023. All talks will take place in Scott Logic Lecture Theater in the Mathematical Sciences/Computer Sciences building. The workshop is designed to bring together a small number of expert speakers across the fields related to quantum field theory, including high-energy, nuclear and condensed matter physics, applying a range of techniques from numerical to theoretical and hybrid approaches. The number of formal talks will be quite limited. A typical day will consist of either two talks, with 2 hour slots available to to speakers to use as they wish, or one 2 hour talk and three 30 minute talks. The idea of the longer talks is to enable the speakers to give a thorough introduction to a broad audience and to encourage questions and discussions during the talks. The 30 minute talks allow for several speakers to briefly introduce the participants to exciting recent developments. Curcially between all talks there will be sufficiently long breaks which will allow more in-depth discussions. Finally, we hope that a number of junior researchers will join as participants in discussing and posing insightful questions.
We will fully fund all speakers, and a number of junior participants. If you have questions please contact the organizers using the contact link below.
This is the third workshop in an annual series of "Paths to Quantum Field Theory" workshops. The earlier workshops were held in 2021 and 2022.
