String Theory in Greater Tokyo is the first in a series of mini-workshop whose aim is to bring researchers of Tokyo and the greater Kanto area working in the fields of string and high energy theory together for lectures and research discussions, with the goal of developing ties and new research opportunities among the area’s research groups. The workshop will be divided between talks and ample discussion time among workshop participants.
We are pleased to welcome Xi Yin, Dionysios Anninos, and Daniel Grumiller as the speakers for the series’ inaugural workshop.
Xi Yin (Harvard University) "On the UV completion of 6d super-Yang-Mills"
Dionysios Anninos (Institute for Advanced Study)
