Mathematical physics: algebraic cycles, strings and amplitudes


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.

**The activities of the KAH programme were disrupted by the global spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).  Further information about its resumption will be made available in due course. See this page for further details**


Workshop theme:

This workshop will bring to INI a highly selective group of physicists with strong mathematical backgrounds and interests together with a mix of mathematicians working on transcendental aspects of string dualities and applications to amplitudes in physics. The aim is to consolidate recent progress on several fronts and to deepen our understanding of the connections between physically-motivated computational frameworks and applications of tools developed within pure mathematics. A list of motivating conjectures and open problems will be generated. 

Deadline for applications: 1st March 2020

KAH programme participants DO NOT need to apply, programme participants with visit dates during KAHW04 will automatically be added to the attendee list.

Please note members of Cambridge University are welcome to turn up and sign in as a non-registered attendee on the day(s) during the workshop and attend the lecture(s). Please note that we cannot provide you with any support including name badge, meals or accommodation.

In addition to visiting the INI, there are multiple ways in which you can participate remotely.
