The Abdus Salam Distinguished Lectures 2019 will be given on 28-29 January 2019 by Prof. Juan Maldacena, from the School of Natural Sciences at IAS, Princeton, USA. Juan Maldacena’s work focuses on quantum gravity, string theory, and quantum field theory. He has proposed a relationship between quantum gravity and quantum field theories that elucidates various aspects of both theories. He is studying this relationship further in order to understand the deep connection between black holes and quantum field theories, and he is also exploring the connection between string theory and cosmology. The abstracts of the 2019 Salam Lectures will be available shortly.
