Non-Perturbative Effects in Supersymmetric Field Theories
Supersymmetric quantum field theories are an interesting theoretical laboratory for studying QFTs; they are central to contemporary mathematical physics and have deep connections to string theory. They allow to check standard expectations in such different fields as High Energy Physics, Statistical Mechanics and Condensed Matter Physics against closed, analytic formulae obtained including perturbative and non-perturbative contributions. They will be the focus of this workshopwhich is meant to bring together researchers active in this field to promote exchange of ideas and collaborations.
Topics that will be discussed during the workshop:
Integrability of Supersymmetric Models;
Superconformal Field Theories;
Superconformal Quantum Field Theories on Curved Spaces;
Moduli Space in Supersymmetriec Field Theories.

The policy of the International Institute of Physics with respect to organization of events demands collecting a registration fee from the participants. Members of the local community (institutions in Natal) are considered as free listeners and are exempt from paying the fee.
Students = R$ 400 Brazilian reais
Postdocs/Professionals = R$ 800 Brazilian reais
*Registration fee is accepted in cash only.
** Information about lodging will be posted soon.
Available for those who qualify for financial help. You may apply for financial support when filling out your registration form (Registration page).
The city of Natal is located at the north-eastern part of Brazil, closest to Africa and Europe. Home of sandy dunes and magnificent beaches, it is an attractive destination for South American and, more recently, European tourists. We recommend to visit the Wikipedia page of Natal for general information about the city.
The event will take place in the new building of the International Institute of Physics on the campus of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN) in Natal. The participants will have access to the facilities of the IIP, including auditorium, offices, seminar rooms and discussion rooms.
Accommodation and Transportation
The participants of the program will be accommodated in one of the hotels in the Ponta Negra district of the city. Please contact the organization team for the help with reservations. During the program a bus transportation will be organized from one of the hotels in Ponta Negra to the IIP building.
