Mathematical Aspects of String and M-Theory


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

11th January 2012 to 13th January 2012

Organisers: Philip Candelas (Oxford), Xenia de la Ossa (Oxford), Matthias Gaberdiel (Zurich), and David Berman (Queen Mary)

Workshop Theme

The meeting will cover recent developments of mathematical aspects in string and M-theory. Specific topics that will be covered (amongst others) are applications of generalised geometry, stabilisation in Calabi-Yau compactifications, quantum geometry and topological strings. Apart from talks the meeting will also have ample time to allow discussions and interactions between participants.
