Previous Euler Symposium 2009/ 2011

First Announcement

The meeting is the continuation of a very successful series of similar meetings in 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011. You may find the list of participants and the programme of the 2009 and 2011 symposia at http://www.pdmi.ras.ru/EIMI/2009/tmp/list.html , http://www.pdmi.ras.ru/EIMI/2011/STMP/ , respectively. Those of you who have enjoyed the Euler symposia before as well as newcomers are welcome to the club!

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 symposium is that theoretical physics is one field with many common methods shared by different sub-communities.

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

  • duality between weakly and strongly coupled systems, ADS/CFT and the like
  • holography in quantum field theory
  • critical phenomena and conformal field theories
  • exactly solvable models
  • topology in quantum field theories
  • supersymmetry in high-energy and condensed-matter physics
  • chiral fermions in particle and condensed-matter physics
  • field theories of disorder and random matrices
  • new ideas in quantum gravity and cosmology.

The meeting starts on Friday morning, July 12, and ends on Wednesday, July 17, 2013. We plan to have five and a half working days with about 30 long talks in total, plenary only. Traditionally, we arrange high energy / math and condensed matter talks in the antiferromagnetic order: it works! On Sunday, July 14th, there will be a boat trip along the beautiful rivers and canals of St. Petersburg, accompanied by the conference dinner.

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. Also, there will be many students.
