Eurostrings 2024-FPUK, 2-6/9/2004

The Eurostrings 2024 meets Fundamental Physics UK conference will take place at University of Southampton on Sep 2-6, 2024. The conference aims to bring together researchers from continental Europe and the UK (and elsewhere!) by combining two annual conferences, Eurostrings and Fundamental Physics UK (FPUK). The latter is an STFC-funded virtual theory centre, which coordinates theoretical physicists in the UK who work on formal topics in fundamental physics. The conference will contain review talks, plenary sessions and parallel sessions, with opportunities to contribute talks, both in plenary and in parallel sessions. We invite anyone (especially junior researchers) to submit an abstract for a contributed talk during registration. More details coming soon.

GenHET meeting, April 29-30, 2024

The GenHET meeting in String Theory will take place at CERN, April 29-30, 2024. An important aim of this meeting is to reactivate the discussion on gender-related issues in the field of String Theory, after a few years of quiescence, partly due to the pandemic. The meeting will include scientific talks by Fernando Alday, Dionysios Anninos, Atish Dabholkar, Ruth Gregory, Monica Guica, and Irene Valenzuela, as well as presentations by Marika Taylor (Birmingham) and Melissa Dansy (Western Michigan U) and panel discussions. In addition, young researchers will have the possibility to apply for a 20-minute research talk on topics related to string theory. Registration is now open on the meeting website.

Workshop on Quivers, CY threefolds and DT Invariants, April 11-15, 2022, Sorbonne Université, Paris

This workshop will bring together physicists and mathematicians working on Quivers,  Calabi-Yau threefolds, Donaldson-Thomas invariants, and related topics. The workshop will be held in hybrid mode, although almost all speakers will be present physically. Please register on the workshop website if you want to participate remotely.

Eurostrings 2022, April 25-29, Lyon

The conference Eurostrings 2022 will take place at Ecole Normale Supérieure in Lyon, from April 25 to April 29, 2022. It is part of a cycle of yearly conferences gathering researchers from all over Europe and elsewhere, working in the areas of quantum field theory, string theory, quantum gravity and related topics.  Registration is now open, with a reduced fee available till March 18.

First meeting of the International Society for Quantum Gravity, Oct 5-7, 2021

The purpose of this meeting is to engage in a scientific dialogue about different approaches to quantum gravity and their interconnections. The focus is on “status reports” on several approaches and overarching topics in quantum gravity. For more details about the programme and if you would like to participate, please register here:

SFT@Cloud 2021, Sep 20-24

The conference SFT@Cloud 2021 will take place online on Sep 20-24. This is an annual meeting for researchers working in string field theory, worldsheet formalism, and related areas in physics and mathematics. For the list of speakers and registration, please see the conference website.
