KEK Theory Workshop 2016 (Dec.6-9)

KEK theory workshop 2016

We are pleased to announce KEK Theory Workshop, an annual workshop on string theory and quantum field theory. In addition to long talks given by the invited speakers, we plan to have short talks as well as posters, which registered participants can apply for.
We hope the workshop will provide a valuable opportunity to have active discussions on various fundamental problems in theoretical physics related to superstrings, supersymmetric gauge theories, black hole physics, quantum field theories, condensed matter physics and so on. This year, we put special emphasis on new attempts to realize chiral fermions on the lattice.

Date:  December 6 (Tue) – 9 (Fri), 2016
Venue: KEK Theory Center, Tsukuba, Japan
