Abstract: 
Insights into the physics of gauge theories and strings have been gained by looking into the properties of the horizons of brane and black hole supergravity solutions. In this talk, I shall present a systematic exploration of the topology and geometry of such horizons utilizing the recent progress that has been made in the classification of supergravity backgrounds. The focus will be in heterotic, type II and M-horizons.
