Geometry and Theoretical Physics

University of Southern Denmark

Sunday 6th to Sunday 13th January, 2008

| Poster | Main Speakers | Timetable | Registration |

The purpose of the school is to endow the new generation of mathematicians and physicists with a common language. We wish to bring together scientists working at the frontier between Geometry and Theoretical Physics able to bridge the gap between mathematics and theoretical physics while stimulating further progress.

The structure of the school will provide ample time for discussions and interactions. The talks will be scheduled from Monday 7th January to Saturday 12th January, inclusive. A detailed program will be posted later.

Talks will take place at the Dalum Landbrugsskole, where participants will also be accommodated.
