Workshop on Gauge Theory and String Theory

Description
The meeting will explore the connections of gauge theories and string theory. The topics will include recent developments in dualities, scattering amplitudes in the perturbative and non-perturbative regime, integrability in gauge theories, and the ultraviolet behavior of supergravity. The meeting will consist of plenary talks, and there will be time allocated for informal discussions. The workshop is part of the programme on QCD and Strings. We hope that it will help to maintain the recent enthusiasm in this rapidly developing field.
