Recent years have seen significant progress in the understanding of 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. Moreover, these models can also be naturally recast in terms of double and exceptional field theory. As such, numerous interesting new connections between these different research areas are developing, promising to shed light on various important open questions.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts from the fields of
- Deformations of integrable models
- Worldsheet dualities and extended field theories
- Non-commutative and non-associative QFT
- Quantum integrable systems in gauge/gravity duality
to facilitate exchange of ideas, collaboration, and the development of new insights across these fields.
The format of the conference will allow plenty of time for work and interactions among participants.
