Local organisation: MIAPP  info(at)

Conference fee: 75 €

The topical workshop "Aspects of Higher-spin theories" from 23rd to 25th May 2016 will bring together experts on higher-spin theories, conformal field theories, AdS/CFT correspondence and string theory.

It will focus on

  • Foundations of higher-spin theories
  • AdS/CFT dualities in diverse dimensions
  • Quantum properties of higher-spin theories
  • Higher-spin theories and string theory
  • Broken higher-spin symmetries and condensed matter physics

A conference dinner (included) is planned on the second evening of the workshop.

The workshop is a part of the MIAPP programme "HIGHER-SPIN THEORY AND DUALITY" which will take place 2 May – 27 May 2016.
