Pollica Summer Workshop on Dualities in Superconformal Field Theories



The workshop will be held in a newly renovated castle in the medieval town of Pollica, located in the gorgeous region of Cilento, south of Italy, from June 12th to June 30th. The first two weeks will have a light schedule with two one and a half hour blackboard talks, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. During the third and final week we will attempt an innovative set-up encouraging collective research (more details here).
