Program Description:

This program aims to bring together leading international and Australian experts in string theory and related mathematics with the goal of exchanging ideas, results and launching new collaborations.

The research focus is on two-dimensional supersymmetric field theories that are related to string theory and mathematics. Key topics will centre on new developments in (2,2) and (0,2) supersymmetric theories and their connections to heterotic strings and quantum corrected supergravity, Calabi-Yau manifolds and vector bundles, AdS/CFT, generalised complex geometry, 2D conformal field theories and their T-Tbar deformations.
