2 - 13 May 2016, Miramare, Trieste, Italy
The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), with the co-sponsorship of the APS, of the lOP, of the OSA and of the IEEE is organizing a Workshop on Entrepreneurship for Physicists and Engineers from Developing Countries, to be held at ICTP, Trieste, Italy, from 30 March to 5 April 2016.
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.
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.
