Speakers: See below

The overarching theme of the meeting will be the mathematics and physics of gauge and string theories.
This area’s strong links to both disciplines has led to novel advances, such as mirror symmetry, Seiberg-Witten invariants, or integrability.
Recently, a number of exciting new developments have taken place and this meeting will focus on four key areas:
* Non-perturbative aspects of supersymmetric gauge theories
* Localisation, topological strings, and geometrical invariants
* The gauge/string correspondence
* Supersymmetric vacua and operators of gauge theories
The speakers at the workshop are:
* N. Beisert (ETH Zurich),
* A. Dabholkar (Paris VI),
* F. Denef (KU Leuven)
* S. Franco (Durham)
* D. Jafferis (Harvard)
* S. Lee (Cambridge)
* L. Rastelli (SUNY Stony Brook)
* S. Shatashvili (Trinity College Dublin)
* M. Staudacher (Humboldt)
* H. Verlinde (Princeton)
* S. Donaldson (Imperial)
* J. Gomis (Perimeter Institute)
* V. Kazakov (ENS)
* J. Minahan (Uppsala)
* N. Seiberg (IAS)
* J. Sparks (Oxford)
* B. Szendroi (Oxford)
