Recent Developments in Quantum Field Theory

The basic idea of the conference is to bring together a mixture of young and well-established researchers, both working at the forefront of quantum field theory and quantum gravity, to discuss their contributions to the recent developments within their respective fields. The fields to be covered are

  • String Theory
  • Loop Quantum Gravity
  • Quantum Field Theory on Curved Space-Time
  • Non-Commutative Field Theory/Geometry as well as the different approaches to quantum field theory and quantum gravity using
  • Topos Theory.

The number of participants is limited not to exceed 35 - 40 internationally well-recognized scientists. We hope that such a small number of invited scientists will allow a lively discussion of the subject of the conference.

We plan to have about 12 talks of 45 - 60 minutes each (three in the morning and two in the afternoon session), which are thought to build the bases of the ensuing discussions. The latter are regarded to build the `core' of the meeting.
