Overview

The workshop aims at bringing together students, postdoctoral researchers and senior scientists to discuss results, perspectives, and novel trends in (quantum) field theory and gravity.

The format of the meeting is informal to allow for discussions and the exchange of ideas amongst participants. Depending on demand, we plan for up to 10 slots for presentations. We also plan for a barbecue afterwards (subject to weather conditions).

This is the 2nd meeting of its kind. The 1st UK-QFT meeting entitled Non-perturbative aspects in field theory has been held at Kings, see: http://www.kcl.ac.uk/nms/depts/physics/news/non-perturbative-aspects-in-Field-Theory.pdf
