First Announcement

The meeting is the continuation of a very successful series of similar meetings in Dresden in 2003 and at the Euler Institute in 2005 and 2007. You may find the details of the 2007 workshop at http://www.pdmi.ras.ru/EIMI/2007/WTMP.

We intend to bring together people actively working in condensed matter, high energy and mathematical physics -- to share new achievements, methods, and ideas. The guiding principle of the workshop is that theoretical physics is one field with many common methods shared by different sub-communities.

The main subject of the workshop are quantum field theories in condensed matter and high energy physics. In particular, the following topics will be discussed:

  • conformal field theories
  • phases of matter and critical phenomena
  • exactly solvable models
  • duality between weak and strongly coupled systems
  • topology in quantum field theories
  • supersymmetry in high-energy and condensed-matter physics
  • chiral fermions in particle and condensed-matter physics
  • field theories of interactions and disorder
The meeting starts on Friday, July 3, and ends on Wednesday, July 8, 2009. We plan to have five and a half working days with about 30 long talks in total. Following the main idea of the workshop, we ask the speakers to present their talks in a pedagogical form accessible to people from other subfields. In addition, there will be many students.
