Description 
ICTP's annual Spring School on Superstring Theory and Related Topics provides pedagogical treatment of these subjects through lectures by some of the world's top string theorists. The activity is intended for theoretical physicists or mathematicians with knowledge of quantum field theory, general relativity and string theory. It is organized in collaboration with the Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP) and the Italian Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN).
TOPICS include:
LECTURERS include: Zohar Komargodski (Stony Brook) Kyriakos Papadodimas (ICTP) Leonardo Rastelli (Stony Brook) Shlomo Razamat (Technion) Matt Reece (Harvard) Tadashi Takayanagi (Yukawa Institute) _{There is no registration fee for this activity.}
