The school puts special emphasis on scattering amplitudes in gauge and string theories, and is primarily aimed at early-stage researchers and advanced masters students, with the intention to bridge the gap between textbook material and the forefront of current research. Knowledge in quantum field theory and the basics of string theory is assumed.

There is no fee for the course but we cannot reimburse expenses of participants.

The school is the first training event organized by the SAGEX Innovative Training Network of the European Commission. At the same time it also continues the "String Steilkurs" series, an intensive course in string theory and mathematical physics that is organized by DESY and the University of Hamburg.

Earlier Steilkurs meetings:

2001  2002  2003  2004  2005  2006  2007  2008  2009  2013  2014  2015  2016
