Geometry and Physics

19.11.2012 – 23.11.2012

The workshop will focus on assessing recent developments in all aspects of geometry and their use in general relativity, quantum field theory and string theory. Other emerging trends on the crossroads of geometry and physics are also welcome for presentation. There will be about four one-hour talks every day (Monday to Friday) with sufficient time left for discussions and interaction among the participants.

More information can be found on the workshop webpage.
