OVERVIEW

 

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;

  • Conformal Bootstrap;

  • Superconformal Quantum Field Theories on Curved Spaces;

  • Moduli Space in Supersymmetriec Field Theories.

REGISTRATION

 

In order to assist the organizing staff to timely issue invitation and visa letters, book accommodation and communicate important information, the prospective particpants are kindly asked to regsiter by clicking on the "Register" button at the top of this page.

 Registration deadline: August 15, 2018

 

REGISTRATION FEE

 

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.

 

FINANCIAL SUPPORT

 

Available for those who qualify for financial help. You may apply for financial support when filling out your registration form (Registration page).  

 

LOCATION


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.

 

OTHER PRACTICAL INFORMATION

 
Visa: Please check whether you require a tourist visa to travel to Brazil. Nationals of the majority of European countries do not require a visa to enter Brazil as tourists. Nationals of the USA, Canada, China, India and some other contries need to apply for a tourist visa. Please check the website of the Brazilian consulate nearest to you for the list of required documents. The IIP will be happy to assist you with the application process.

Flights: Natal has a regular flight connection with Lisbon, Portugal, operated by the Portuguese TAP. For those, coming through Europe, this is typically the most convenient option. The majority of flights operated from North America have connections in either Rio de Janeiro, or Sao Paulo. The closest direct flights (Americal Airlines from Miami and Copa Airlines from Panama City) arrive to Recife, 315 km away from Natal.

Airport: The two recommended ways to get to/from the airport is taxi and shuttle. Taxi ride from the airport to Ponta Negra will be around 80-150 reals, depending on the time of the day and traffic. Many commercial companies also operate shuttle service to/from the airport. The shuttle cost is around 35-50 reals one way and you will share the ride with several other passengers. Depending on the number of passengers it can take longer to arrive to your destination.  Uber also offers its services in Natal, in particular, connecting the city and the airport. Rates may vary depending on demand.
