Description
New deadline for applications not needing financial support and/or visa: 11 August

The workshop consists of a series of talks covering different complementary approaches to non-perturbative quantum field theories and includes plenty of discussion time. The goal is to bring together different communities working in closely related fields to stimulate exchange of ideas.

Topics:

  • 3d Dualities
  • S-Matrix Bootstrap
  • Resurgence
  • T-Tbar Deformations
  • Hamiltonian Truncation
  • Lattice QFT
