Conference on Genome Architecture in Space and Time

 

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy, will organize a Conference on Genome Architecture in Space and Time from 20 - 24 June 2016. The Conference will be co-sponsored by SISSA.The life of any cell is based upon the information coded by the linear filament of its DNA and how this information is processed is profoundly influenced by the spatial and dynamic folding of DNA sequence in the crowded environment of the nucleus of the cell (for eukaryotes) or the nucleoid (for prokaryotes).

Joint ICTP-IAEA Workshop on Computed Tomography: Quality Control, Dosimetry and Optimization

 

2 - 13 May 2016, Miramare, Trieste, Italy
The purpose of the workshop is to exchange advanced knowledge on the physics and technological innovations in computed tomography (CT), procedures for quality control and dosimetry. The optimization strategies, aiming to achieve diagnostic image quality at lower radiation dose, will be also extensively discussed. Achieving good image quality at lower patient dose became of high importance in the last decades with the new technological development and especially when new generations of multi-detector CT became widely available.

Workshop on Topics in Three Dimensional Gravity

 

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) presents a Workshop on Topics in Three Dimensional Gravity.

Gravity in three dimensions has rather special features which makes it particularly suitable for addressing questions related to the quantization of gravity and puzzles concerning black hole physics. AdS3 gravity and in particular AdS3/CFT2 has played a crucial role in black hole microstate counting, and more recently in studying holographic entanglement entropy and higher spin theories.

Spring School on Superstring Theory and Related Topics

 

The Aim of the activity held by the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), in collaboration with the Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP) and the Italian Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN), is to provide pedagogical treatment of these subjects in the form of a series of lectures by individual speakers. The activity is intended for theoretical physicists or mathematicians with knowledge of quantum field theory, general relativity and string theory.
