IV Postgradute Meeting on Theoretical Physics
The IV Postgraduate Meeting On Theoretical Physics
will take place at IFT UAM/CSIC (Madrid) from the 18th to the 20th of November 2015.
This year’s meeting will be the fourth in the series of encounters organized every year at different Spanish institutions since 2012. The first edition took place at University of Barcelona, while successful sequels were celebrated at IFT and Santiago de Compostela University in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
The spirit of this fourth meeting remains faithful to the previous editions. Our aim is to allow theoretical physics-oriented (in a relatively broad sense) PhD students and young postdocs from European institutions to explain their research projects in an informal environment and to establish collaborations and/or bonds among them. We encourage young researchers to participate (contributing with a talk/poster or not).
The speakers will be selected from the participants themselves. We expect the talks to cover a wide range of topics in modern theoretical physics. This includes but is not restricted to:
Particle Physics, (Classical and Quantum) Gravity Theories, String Theory, AdS/CFT,
Quantum Information, Condensed Matter Theory, Cosmology,
Astrophysics, Lattice Gauge Theories, etc.
As a novelty, in this year’s edition we will have three review talks by local senior speakers covering general interest topics in theoretical physics:
Karl Landsteiner on From the Quark Gluon Plasma to Weyl semi-metals on a superstring.
Alberto Salvio on The LHC, Cosmology and the Origin of Scales.
Jose L. F. Barbón on The Black Hole Information Paradox Reloaded.
We will also have a poster session, bring yours!
There is no registration fee.
Update: We are pleased to confirm that the V Postgraduate Meeting on Theoretical Physics will be held in Oviedo next year.
